As the second half of last night's Rockets game got underway, things were not looking good for the Rockets. Just four minutes into the 3rd quarter, Dwight Howard picked up his fifth foul and Donatas Motiejunas was forced to enter. Instead of the somewhat uninspired, lackluster basketball Motiejunas has treated us to this season, D-Mo played excellent in his most action of the season, making key defensive plays and running the floor as the Rockets came back against the Grizzlies.
As Chandler Parsons said after the game, "it wasn't pretty, but a win's a win." James Harden made 22 free throws, Chandler Parsons had a double-double, and Terrence Jones went 10 for 14 from the floor and the Rockets somehow pulled out the win.
