Houston, TX– After losing their first 10 division games, the Grizzlies reached the halfway point of the NBA season by beating the Rockets, in Houston, 88-87..improving to 21-20 on the year.
Newcomer Courtney Lee continues to shine, scoring 19 points and Zach Randolph was clutch down the stretch to finish with 15 points and 8 rebounds for just the second win on the Rockets home floor, in the past 16 visits to Houston.
The win offset a record-setting night from Rockets forward Chandler Parsons, who hit an NBA-record 10 3’s in the second half on his way to 34 points. Those 10 3’s are also a Rockets single-game franchise record.
The Grizzlies and Rockets play again, tonight, at the Grindhouse to finish off a back to back on back to back night.
