Rockets point guard Chris Paul also made a big contribution with 26 points shooting 5/8 from deep with five assists and three steals.
Despite Houston picking up their fifth victory, rumors continue to swirl about the future of offseason acquisition Carmelo Anthony.
However, the Rockets since denied the report.
Rockets general manager Daryl Morey called speculation of Anthony’s departure “unfair” and added that “Anthony has done everything asked of him of the coaching staff.”
