The Rockets had a season-high 12 blocked shots Sunday in the 121-100 win over the Kings, and five were contributed by Terrence Jones, who has nine blocks in his last four games. “I’m trying to get in rhythm with everybody, reading everybody, knowing where guys like the ball,” Jones said. “I’m having fun playing, and I try to play good defense on my man.” Guard Jeremy Lin said Jones “was swatting everything. Guys really stepped into the paint, and (Jones) tried to make them kick it out and make them play off of jumpers.” The Rockets twice had 10 blocks this season — Jan. 18 at Indiana and April 6 at Denver.
