Game Story

HOUSTON (Ticker) -- The Houston Rockets obviously did not heed the words of Jerry Stackhouse. Jim Jackson scored 17 points and shut down Stackhouse as the Rockets rolled to a 107-81 rout of the Washington Wizards. After the Wizards posted a 106-88 victory at Cleveland on February 7, Stackhouse proclaimed, "After the All-Star break, people better watch out (for the Wizards)." In their first game since the All-Star break, the Wizards were embarrassed by the Rockets, who led by as many as 34 points in the second half. "Very few nights in this league is it easy," Rockets coach Jeff Van Gundy said. "Tonight, for some reason, it wasn't as difficult as most nights and we did some good things. We've played a lot better even in some losses, so we don't want to get too carried away by this score." Jackson also made it somewhat of an embarrassing night for Stackhouse, who he guarded most of the way. Stackhouse committed more turnovers (four) than had field goals made (two) and finished with seven points. All-Star Yao Ming added 16 points and Kelvin Cato 15 and 10 rebounds for the Rockets, who have won five of six following a four-game losing streak. Cato, known for his defensive prowess, provided an offensive spark in the first quarter, when he made 5-of-6 shots and scored 10 points as the Rockets closed the period on a 14-2 run to open a 30-18 lead. The Rockets shot a blistering 75 percent (12-of-16) in the opening 12 minutes. "We made a few shots early but you can't beat a team that shoots sixty percent from the floor," Stackhouse said. "We have to keep that from happening." Yao netted 10 points and Jackson seven in the second quarter, helping the Rockets stretch the lead to 57-37 at the break. Houston shot 63 percent (22-of-35) in the half. The Rockets shot 54 percent (44-of-81) overall. They had 34 assists on 44 baskets. "I think the assist numbers were impressive tonight," Rockets All-Star guard Steve Francis said. "It just shows that we were able to move the basketball around tonight." "We had a really good practice earlier this week and we did well in the shootaround, but things fell apart after the first quarter," Wizards coach Eddie Jordan said. "We need more confidence and team morale and we have to learn how to get it done." The frontcourt of Jackson, Cato and Yao combined to make 15-of-20 shots in the first half and 20-of-31 overall. "We all feel great out there right now," Cato said. "The main thing that coach wants us to focus on is to make great passes for great shots. You can't make (lazy) passes and try to hit jumpers on the wing with our guards. They just can't make good shots if we don't make good passes." Cuttino Mobley added 12 points, Francis 11 and Maurice Taylor 10 for the Rockets, who led by at least 20 points the entire second half. Etan Thomas collected 13 points and Gilbert Arenas 11 for Washington, which has lost its last two games by a total of 51 points. "It's not the end of the world," Jordan said. "Our bench played well and our starters didn't. We didn't get any leadership from our veterans and it was just a very poor performance from our starters."
