That's all she wrote for the Houston Rockets and Sacramento Kings, with the Rockets picking up their third-straight win, 112-102.

Chandler Parsons led the way with an impressive 29 points, five rebounds and four assists, while shooting 12-of-18 from the field. 

Most impressive though was Terrence Jones who got his first significant minutes since the beginning of the year. He dominated in a number of ways, picking up his first double double of his career with 14, points on 6-of-11 shooting, and 12 rebounds.

Jones is an example of the NBA D-league working, and that's refreshing to see, especially for the Rockets who were looking for consistent and efficient production from the power forward position.

James Harden added 21 points, nine assists and seven rebounds and Omer Asik recorded yet another double double with 19 points and 10 rebounds.

The Kings just couldn't hang with the offensive pace set by the Rockets, even with Marcus Thornton's 21 points in 22 minutes and 42 points from DeMarcus Cousins and Tyreke Evans. 

With this win, the Rockets are inching closer to the sixth seed in the Western Conference.

If I was in the upper echelon of the West, I'd be doing everything in my power to make sure I don't meet the Rockets in the first-round of the playoffs. They are a dangerous, dangerous team.
