The Rockets return home tonight in need of a good performance.

The Rockets head back home to the friendly confines of the Toyota Center having lost three out of their last four games and are looking to get back on track tonight against the 20-20 Milwaukee Bucks.

The lineup is still in flux, with Ryan Anderson once again a scratch with the flu bug, and Corey Brewer drawing a second straight start. Also, Montrezl Harrell is back in the starting lineup, with Clint Capela coming off the bench as he works himself back into mid-season shape. Eric Gordon will play after tweaking his ankle in yesterday's loss to the Miami Heat.

This is an important game for the Rockets in that they have a weekend back-to-back set coming up at home against Golden State on Friday and then at the Memphis Grizzlies on Saturday. Falter tonight, and a four-game losing streak is not out of the question once the weekend is over.

Win, however. and the Rockets build some new momentum heading into a tough stretch.
