Houston Rockets vs. New Orleans Hornets: Postgame Grades, Analysis for Houston

The Houston Rockets came into this game leading the league in scoring. Their 125-point outing against the Los Angeles Lakers the Tuesday night was concrete evidence of that. Well, that offense took a vacation Wednesday night, as the Rockets fell to the New Orleans Hornets by a score of 88-79.

Houston actually had two double-digit leads in this one, but it blew both of them. The fourth quarter was an absolute disaster for Kevin McHale's club, as they were outscored 29-10 by the Hornets and were just torched by a red-hot Roger Mason.

Despite 25 points from James Harden (who led all scorers), the Rockets saw their five-game winning streak snapped on Wednesday night. Your first thought is that they may have been a bit tired on the back-to-back, but given the fact that they appeared to have this game well in hand on a couple of different occasions, you can't help but feel that Houston is going to be pretty upset with the way it lost this game.
