Rockets rally past Magic 114-110, snap 5-game losing streak

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) Christian Wood scored 25 points, Kelly Olynyk added 24 and the Houston Rockets used a strong offensive showing in the third quarter to rally past the Orlando Magic 114-110 on Sunday night.

Kevin Porter Jr. scored 22 and made four 3-pointers points before fouling out midway through the fourth quarter as the Rockets snapped a five-game losing streak and a five-game road skid. Armoni Brooks chipped in 16 points and another five 3-pointers for a Houston squad that shot 51.2% from the floor and hit 16 3-pointers.

"We did a better job of executing, especially in the second half when we locked in," said Wood, who added 10 rebounds for his 17th double-double of the season. "I told coach I wanted to close the game out, and my team trusted me to close the game. I feel like I did a great job of executing."
