Gordon, Wood guide Rockets past Pelicans for 6th win in row

HOUSTON, Texas (AP) Eric Gordon and Christian Wood both scored 23 points, and the Houston Rockets beat the New Orleans Pelicans 118-108 on Sunday night for their sixth straight win.

The Rockets have pieced together the run after losing 15 straight games.

"At the beginning, frankly, we didn't really know what we were doing, we hadn't been through those experiences," Rockets coach Stephen Silas said. "We had just had training camp and then game after game. Guys who hadn't been through those moments and the more we do it, the better we get at it."
