Game Story

HOUSTON (Ticker) -- It has taken Jeff Van Gundy less than three months to produce the best defensive season in Houston Rockets' history. Maurice Taylor scored a season-high 25 points off the bench and Jim Jackson added 18 as the Rockets shut down the Golden State Warriors en route to an 83-65 victory. The Rockets set a team record last season by holding 10 opponents under 80 points. They already have eclipsed that mark in 33 games under Van Gundy, who has turned them into arguably the NBA's best defensive team. Houston allows just over 84 points per game - second only to the San Antonio Spurs - and holds opponents to a league-leading 39 percent shooting. "We've got two men of size and we're starting to figure out what we can and can't do," Van Gundy said. "It's not like we're anywhere close to what we can be. On most nights, we've got good, honest effort defensively." The Rockets improved those numbers against the Warriors, who shot just 33 percent (25-of-75) en route to the second-lowest scoring game in franchise history. They scored 64 points against the Cleveland Cavaliers on March 30, 1996. "Houston is one of the better defensive teams in the league and that contributed to us not scoring much," Golden State coach Eric Musselman said. "Houston is a very good defensive team all around. We struggled offensively and didn't shoot the ball well or rebound." Houston led by as many as 14 points early in the fourth quarter, but Golden State used a 9-2 run to pull within 72-65 with 4:07 left. But the Rockets held the Warriors scoreless thereafter, closing with an 11-0 run sparked by a pair of baskets by Taylor. Cuttino Mobley scored 14 points and Yao Ming had 10 and 10 rebounds for the Rockets, who shot 47 percent (35-of-75) and held a 50-30 advantage on the boards. Houston overcame the struggles of Steve Francis, who handed out a season-high 12 assists but scored just two points in 1-of-11 shooting - the second-lowest scoring game of his career. "I'm glad all the other guys played well," Francis said. "Fortunately, the other guys picked up the slack. A win is a win." Mike Dunleavy Jr. scored 13 points to lead Golden State, which has lost a season-high six consecutive games. "It's tough. It's been very hard for us to get a win," Dunleavy said. "We have to fight it and keep fighting to do whatever we need to get a win. You need maximum effort every time out." Troy Murphy, Nick Van Exel and Jason Richardson scored 10 points apiece but combined to make just 13-of-34 shots for the Warriors.
