Houston Rockets vs. Brooklyn Nets: Postgame Grades and Analysis for Houston

In their first game since trading Patrick Patterson, Marcus Morris, Cole Aldrich and Toney Douglas, the Houston Rockets' offense didn't skip a beat, looking like a team whose many defensive weaknesses can regularly be smoothed over by consistent three-point shooting. This was certainly the case Friday night as they defeated the Brooklyn Nets, 106-96. 

With Carlos Delfino replacing Patterson/Morris in the starting lineup, Houston's offense was even more spread out than it normally is. They were madmen from behind the arc, going 6-of-12 from three in the first quarter alone (and making another six in the third quarter, 16 in total on 55-percent shooting). 

After letting the Nets cut their double-digit lead to as little as three late in the fourth, Delfino was magical, scoring five points with less than two minutes to go.
