BACK TO FORM?

Rockets win at Denver is most encouraging yet this season

From the expected release of Carmelo Anthony to the poor record, it's been a bumpy ride for the Rockets out of the gate this season, but there are signs things are looking up. Chris Paul (21 points) took the first half while James Harden (22 points, 11 assists) took the second as the Rockets knocked off the upstart Nuggets 109-99 in Denver Tuesday night, improving to 6-7 on the year. D'Antoni, going with an eight-man rotation, leaned heavily on the starters and they didn't disappoint. Clint Capela was fantastic, throwing down numerous dunks to the tune of 24 points on 11-15 shooting, and James Ennis (16 points) and PJ Tucker (12 points, +25) were rock solid. They may not be quite ready for the Warriors yet, but they'll get them just the same on Thursday at Toyota Center.
