MILWAUKEE -- The Houston Rockets used an inside-out offense to score their seventh road victory in eight tries, beating the Milwaukee Bucks, 117-103, on Saturday night at the BMO Harris Bradley Center.
The visiting Rockets dropped 52 points in the paint and converted 15 of 38 triple attempts for 45 points on the outside. The versatile assault ended the Bucks' three-game winning streak at home while improving Houston's overall record to 13-4.
Rockets guard James Harden led all scorers with 34 points, including 19 in the pivotal third quarter where Houston seized the momentum and took a 13-point lead. Jason Terry also came up big for the visitors with 18 points, six rebounds and five assists.
"The sky is the limit, we're just scratching the surface...Once we're healthy you can really see what this team has," Terry told reporters after his outstanding relief work for injured starting guard Patrick Beverley.
The Rockets played without center Dwight Howard, who missed his sixth straight assignment with a sprained knee.
The young Bucks, who fell to 10-8, fought hard to defend their turf as Jabari Parker produced 19 points, nine rebounds and five assists, but it wasn't enough to stop the Harden and his support cast.
Ersan Ilyasova finished with 18 points while point guard Brandon Knight had 12 for Milwaukee.
