After losses to the Mavericks and Kings, the Rockets were looking to bounce back in a big way on Christmas Day. And boy did they ever. James Harden exploded in the fourth quarter, Dwight Howard put together another tremendous game, and Chandler Parsons, Terrence Jones, and Jeremy Lin all tossed in solid performances as the Rockets rolled over the Spurs by a score of 111-98.

The Rockets never trailed in this one, taking the lead from the early parts of the first quarter all the way to the final buzzer, and inched closer to the Spurs who are currently seeded 3rd in the Western Conference. Check out all the highlights from the big win below (courtesy of CSN Houston):
