One of the bright spots in Saturday's 107-100 loss was the Rockets' improvement in free throw shooting.
It was only one night earlier when the Rockets shot 41.4 percent from the line with a 12-29 performance. Omer Asik was 1-8 at the stripe in the team's loss to the Celtics.
On Saturday, it was a different story. Houston still lost, but at the very least, the team shot 18-22 from the line. Asik was a perfect 4-4.
So while the team preferred a different overall result, there were some spots of improvement.
