still have things we need to correct.

  • (SportsNetwork. Jordan Matthews Jersey .com) - The Houston Rockets will try to go 3-0 Saturday night when they stage their home opener against the Boston Celtics at the Toyota Center. The Rockets defeated the Utah Jazz and Los Angeles Lakers, both on the road, to start the campaign. Houston won both games by a combined 29 points, marking the first time since the 2007-08 season the Rockets captured the first two games by double digits. Against the Jazz on Wednesday, Dwight Howard scored 22 points with 10 rebounds and two blocks to lead the Rockets to a 104-93 win. James Harden nearly contributed a triple-double, scoring 18 with 10 assists and seven rebounds, and Trevor Ariza finished with 20 points in the win. Kostas Papanikolaou chipped in 12 off the bench. After allowing 50 points to the Jazz in the first half, the Rockets put on the clamps. Utah just managed 43 points over the final 24 minutes and Houston marched to a 2-0 mark. Second half we did a great job of coming out with some defensive intensity, Harden said. Offensively, the Rockets shot 51.9 percent from the field versus Utah and the same percentage from beyond the 3-point arc. Last season, Houston went 26-3 when it shot over 50 percent from the floor, and 25-8 when it converted 10 or more 3-point attempts. The Rockets stop home will be brief. They visit the Philadelphia 76ers and Miami Heat next week. The Celtics opened the season in impressive fashion with a 121-105 home win over the Brooklyn Nets on Wednesday. Rajon Rondo woke up from a long nap Wednesday afternoon and decided he was ready to go after he missed the entire preseason with a broken left hand. The decision paid off as Rondo went for 13 points, 12 assists and seven rebounds to lead the Cs to victory. Kelly Olynyk scored 19 points and Jeff Green had 17 for Boston. Eight Celtics reached double figures, and all 10 that took the floor scored at least six points in a balanced attack. I think we still need to do a better job with weakside defense, said Green. We still have things we need to correct. We have to continue to move forward. The Celtics will have to improve defensively just to match up with the Rockets star duo of Harden and Howard. We have to give them different looks, said Green. I think weve done a great job in todays practice as far as communication as far as what we want to do. The Rockets swept the Celtics last season and have taken six of the last eight meetings. Houston has won three straight at home against the Cs, who had previously won four straight in Houston. Kenny Britt Jersey .
