Rockets hope recent road trip success translates to home

With wins in three of the five games of their recent road, ending with a last-second loss at Golden State, the Rockets hoped to have taken home improved play.

The Rockets haven’t won at Toyota Center since December 8, when they defeated the Brooklyn Nets for the final win of their seven-game winning streak. The Rockets have lost their past eight home games when they started a four-game homestand on Tuesday against the Spurs, the team they defeated to start the five-game road trip.

“We know what to do,” Rockets security guard Eric Gordon said. “We just have to bring good, young energy. This previous trip was useful defensively, on both sides of the ball, but defensively was what really stabilized us on the last trip. ”

The Rockets’ defensive rating on the road trip is at 15e in the NBA, accounting for 113.8 points per 100 possessions. The Rockets, who are last in the NBA this season in terms of defensive rating, allowed 122.8 points per 100 possession in their eight-game home loss streak.
