The Wizards had 7 players in double figures, leading the way was John Wall with a impressive stat line of 17 points, 9 assists, and 7 rebounds.
But it was not enough for the Wizards. The Wizards are currently in 11th place in the Eastern Conference and are having troubles going against the Western Conference, standing at a 5-10 record.
The Houston Rockets have been playing decent in the tough Western Conference as of late.
The Rockets are 3-2 the last 5 games. During this stretch the Rockets are averging 105.2 points per game and giving up 113.2 points per game.
The Rockets have been paced by their all-star guard James Harden who is averaging 24.7 points, 6.3 rebounds, and 6.9 assists per game this season.
Houston has been lucky to see Dwight Howard back to somewhat production.
Howard is averaging 20.7 points per game to go along with 12 rebounds per game.
The Rockets last action was Wednesday against the San Antonio Spurs where they were defeated 130-pp. James Harden led the Rockets with a 20 point performance.
