The Houston Rockets came off an impressive victory against the Denver Nuggets at home. Russell Westbrook looked like the OKC Russ with 28 points, 15 rebounds, eight assists and four steals. James Harden followed his charge with 27 points, five rebounds and five assists while Eric Gordon lit up with 25 points while shooting six three-pointers. Cling Capela controlled the paint with 14 points and 12 rebounds while the returning Austin Rivers had 11 points in 21 minutes.
