The New Jersey Nets continue to struggle this year, and injuries are making it harder for the team. Nets star guard Deron Williams was out again Saturday, and center Brook Lopez is out at least another two weeks with an ankle sprain. Even though the team was playing at home Saturday night, the Houston Rockets had six players score in double figures to claim a 112-106 win, ending a five-game losing skid.
It was kind of like a good old-fashioned shootout, Rockets coach Kevin McHale said, according to The Associated Press. Everyone was making shots. We had a bad taste in our mouth coming into this game and we found a way to win.
But the Nets at least had one the NBA season's best highlights on an alley-oop dunk by Gerald Green. He took the pass from Marshon Brooks and launched a massive windmill jam that brought the Newark, New Jersey crowd to its feet. See Green's dunk against the Rockets in the video below:
