Douglas talks about his halfcourt shot

Toney Douglas is riding a hot stretch coming off the Rockets bench.

For the fifth straight game, Douglas scored in double digits. In fact, he's averaging almost 15 points in those five contests.

On Wednesday, Douglas finished with 12 points, though three of those were even more spectacular. Douglas beat the halftime buzzer with a heave from beyond halfcourt.

"There's going to be games where you have a bad game," Douglas said as he talked about his mentality off the bench. "You can't get down. That's the work ethic you put in, the time that you put in. And know that no matter what, you can come back and redeem yourself."

Douglas hasn't had a stretch of five straight games in double figures since April of 2011 when he was with the Knicks. Those five games were also off the bench, making the streak that much more impressive.
