Also clearly recognizable: the player who carried Houston down the stretch. Rockets forward Patrick Patterson scored 14 of his game-high 24 points in the fourth quarter to lift Houston to a 109-95 win over the Charlotte Bobcats at Toyota Center. "It's all about finding teammates and getting open," Patterson said. "Early on I was running the court, providing opportunities for myself and my teammates to look for me.

Danny Granger hasn't played a game this season, but that doesn't mean he hasn't drawn interest on the trade market. Fox Sports' Sam Amico's latest column drops several trade rumors, among them: The Houston Rockets "have a keen eye on" the Indiana Pacers forward.

It' pretty simple - stop the player from scoring the basket. However, it seems the Rockets forgot about this when they faced the Nuggets recently and Danilo Gallinari made the Houston defense look silly.
Off a missed shot by Houston's Chandler Parsons, Gallo snatched the rebound and was off and running. All who was left was James Harden who's defense was less-than-stellar...
The Houston Rockets spent plenty of time on the road and didn't enjoy a particularly successful January.
