The Houston Rockets successfully snapped a five-game losing streak Saturday night with a 112-106 win over the New Jersey Nets. Now they will try to keep things going as their road trip continues in Cleveland with a matchup against the Cavaliers.
Goran Dragic started for the injured Kyle Lowry Saturday night and finished with 23 points and eight assists. The Rockets also won despite leading scorer Kevin Martin playing only 17 minutes and scoring five points. Martin's playing time has been sporadic of late with head coach Kevin McHale opting to stick with Courtney Lee down the stretch against the Nets on Saturday.
The Cavaliers are just 15-23 on the season but return home riding a two game winning streak after victories over the Denver Nuggets and Oklahoma City Thunder. Kyrie Irving has exceeded expectations as a rookie and veteran Antawn Jamison has performed at a high level of late.
