The Houston Rockets narrowly escaped the Washington Wizards fury in a 113-112 win in Toyota Center, extending their league best streak to 7 in a row.

The Washington Wizards came to Houston and were treated to a nailbiter by the Houston Rockets at Toyota Center. After the final whistle the score was 113 to 112, Rockets. Houston entered the game not having lost to an Eastern Conference team at home this season and the hottest team in the NBA having won six straight. During that streak Howard has averaged 24.8 points, 11.5 rebounds, 2 blocks. The notable match up between these two (Besides Harden and Beal) was Gortat and Howard, the understudy versus the lead actor. The Wizards limped into game behind Bradley Beal's career high 37 points against the Memphis Grizzlies. The Wizards hadn't won against the Rockets at home since 2008.
