The Houston Rockets finally snapped their five-game losing streak with a win over the Orlando Magic, 114-110. The win makes them escape the brand of being the worst team in the entire NBA and have a 0.5 game lead over the Minnesota Timberwolves. Christian Wood was the best player for the Rockets doing 25 points, ten rebounds, three assists and four three-pointers. Kelly Olynyk followed him with a strong performance of 24 points, seven rebounds and four assists. Kevin Porter Jr. joined the scoring spree finishing with 22 points, seven assists and three rebounds before fouling out.

That snapped their three-game losing streak and improves their record to 29-28. They have fallen to the seventh-best record in the NBA Eastern Conference and are trailing the New York Knicks by 1.5 games.
