Streak: Lost 1

The Rockets lost to Dallas after one of their better players returned to action. Why? Defense.

The Rockets are great at scoring, assisting and rebounding—credit Lin and Harden for that. They're an offensive top-10 team, but they're dead last defensively, allowing their opponents more than 100 per game.

They beat the Lakers and the Jazz at home, but they'll have to figure out a way to come together against stiffer competition going forward. They've got San Antonio again this week, plus the Celtics.

Thanks for displaying the list on one screen, rather than making readers flip through them one at a time. Very convenient!
