The Houston Rockets just reeled off their third straight win to improve to .500 on the season. Their opponent, the Toronto Raptors, meanwhile dropped their fifth straight and have no one but themselves to blame for the team's 117-101 loss at the Toyota Center.
The Raptors defense was worse than a high school JV team, allowing wide-open threes and easy penetration all night. Their offense wasn't much better, with nine first-half turnovers that led to 16 Rockets points.
The lone bright spots for the Raptors was the impressive play of rookie Terrence Ross, while Andrea Bargnani had an impressive game in his own right. But outside of that duo, the silver lining on this cloud was a pale glimmer that only the most optimistic Raptors fan could find.
Let's take a look at the punishment the Rockets dealt the Raptors in our postgame grades for Houston.
