Rockets tip off 4-game road trip at T-wolves

In desperate need of a win, or anything to reverse their recent trend of suboptimal play, the Rockets were in no position to debate the merits of their victory over Denver on Wednesday.

The Nuggets were missing four key rotation players, including a trio of starters, but the Rockets did not apologize following their 121-105 home victory. Houston had dropped four consecutive games and five of six overall, so any step in the right direction was welcome with a warm embrace.

And now, the Rockets will be charged with taking what they mustered at Toyota Center against the Nuggets on the road, starting on Friday at Target Center against the Minnesota Timberwolves, the opener of a four-game road trip that includes stops in Denver, Utah and Portland.
