Rockets stifle LeBron, Cavaliers

BY foxsports • December 10, 2009

The Houston Rockets have won games this season with a balanced offense that almost always produces 100 or more points.

They used some of the stingy defense that has been their trademark in recent years to handle LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers on Wednesday night

Aaron Brooks scored 27 points, Trevor Ariza had 26 and the Rockets held James and the Cavaliers to one of their worst offensive performances of the season in a 95-85 victory.

James scored 27 points, but was 8 for 21 from the field. No other Cleveland starter reached double figures and the Cavs matched their season-low point total.
