The Brooklyn Nets failed to knock off the Houston Rockets for the 11th consecutive matchup.

Deron Williams' night started off promising for Brooklyn, as he dropped 20 in the first quarter alone. That was the closest the Nets would get to a win, however, as their one-point lead evaporated just seconds into the second quarter, and it would never be relinquished by the Rockets.

James Harden and the Houston attack was too much for the Nets defense. Brooklyn kept it close throughout the second half, but Harden helped close it out with several key buckets in the closing minutes.

It marks the end of a 4-4 roadie for Brooklyn, and Houston has now won two straight, not far removed from a seven-game losing streak.
