Rockets vs. Grizzlies recap: Houston falls to Memphis, 93-85

Houston loses their third game in a row, as they come up short against Memphis.

Scott Halleran

After starting 2-0, the Houston Rockets have lost three straight games, and the latest loss comes at the hands of the Memphis Grizzlies, 93-85. Houston had four players score in double figures, with Chandler Parsons leading the way with 19 points, and James Harden had 18 points.

The Rockets started the game strong and led by seven points after the first quarter, but the Grizzles slowly chipped away at that lead to get the win. Houston was within two points after a Jeremy Lin layup with 2:23 left in the game, but that would be the last basket the Rockets would score on the night.

The Grizzlies ended up scoring the final five points in the game to secure the win, and it was Rudy Gay's two-point shot which put Memphis up by seven points to put away the game for good. Gay had 21 points for Memphis, and he led all scorers on the night.
