Grevis Vasquez Scores Career High 24 Point In Loss To Houston Rockets


The New Orleans Hornets went into Houston Wednesday night to take on the Rockets and came out with a loss. The Rockets held off the Hornets behind James Harden’s 30 points, 10-20 form the field. Harden’s 3rd 30 point game and Omer Asik’s 12 rebounds were enough to give the Rockets the 100-96 victory over the Hornets.

Despite the Hornets loss, Grevis Vasquez had one of his best games of his NBA career. Vasquez posted a career 24 points, 9 assist, and 5 rebounds. Ryan Anderson also played well off the bench, despite shooting 2-10 from the 3-point line. Anderson finished with 20 points and 12 rebounds.

Anthony Davis was not as effective as he has been in Wednesdays game. Davis played 29 minutes and only finished with 8 points and 4 rebounds. It just was not his game on the offensive end, Davis shot 2-7 from the field. Davis did record 3 blocked shots in the effort though.

Austin Rivers also posted a new career high in points against the Rockets on Wednesday. Rivers finally found some shooting touch and hit first NBA 3-points of his career. Rivers finished with 10 points on 3-8 shooting.

Besides James Harden, Omer Asik and Chandler Parsons played well from the Rockets. Asik finished with 15 points and 12 rebounds while Parson recorded 13 points and 10 rebounds. Parson also hit a 3-pointer near the end of the 4th quarter to put the game on ice.
