The Houston Rockets are one of the NBA’s most exciting young teams. Them getting a spot on the Christmas Day fight card is a testament to that fact.
While Houston's ability to entertain has never been questioned, the one concern everyone has had about this group to date is that it is more style than substance.
On Tuesday night, in front of a national audience, the Rockets proved that was not the case when they beat the Chicago Bulls (on the road) 120-107.
James Harden led the way for the winning squad with 26 points on seven-of-13 shooting. Chandler Parsons had 23 points on nine-of-13 shooting. Jeremy Lin and Omer Asik each pitched in 20 points apiece. All in all, five Houston starters finished in double figures.
Nate Robinson led the way for Chicago with 27 points off the bench.
