Parsons, Delfino impress in return

(Thomas Campbell - US Presswire)

Chandler Parsons and Carlos Delfino both made quite the impact as they both returned Saturday to the Rockets lineup.

The pair were both instrumental in the Rockets' 124-116 win over the Jazz.

Parsons almost didn't seem like he was injured, save for a few times where he winced in pain. However, his play did not reflect this pain, as he was diving for loose balls and shooting 7-for-12 from the field for 19 points.

Meanwhile, Delfino had 13 points and five rebounds in just under 17 minutes off the bench, making five of his seven shots, including three treys.

"It felt good to be out there again," Parsons said. "Missing one game felt like forever. It felt good just to go out there and get a good win at home.

"The one time I dove on the floor, it hurt. And the one-handed one in the second half really hurt, but it's just something I'm going to have to battle through and keep strengthening it, keep rehabbing it, and eventually it'll go away. But it's not getting to the point where it'll make me miss more games."
