After terrible start, Rockets are suddenly playing ball

Christian Wood and the Houston Rockets have come alive.

After 15 straight losses and a 1-16 record, the Rockets have now won five in a row after Friday night's 118-116 win over the Orlando Magic.

Eric Gordon broke a tie game with a clutch drive and score with 0.9 seconds left, giving Houston the win.

Gordon was red hot, hitting 10-14 shots for 24 points and Wood shook off a rough start to finish with 20 points and 14 boards.

Garrison Mathews missed his first six threes but then hit three in a row in the fourth that were huge.

Kevin Porter Jr., who was questionable to play with a thigh injury, reaggravated the injury and did not return to the game after halftime.
