The Rockets will try to continue their beasts-of-the-east run when they hit up the Q on Satuday night.

For awhile, that dominance of the Eastern Conference looked to be in jeopardy on Friday night when the Rockets trailed the Bucks 48-30 midway through the second quarter. However, Houston stormed back with a furious second half to win handily 115-101.

The win improved their record against the Eastern Conference to 13-2.

Now, they will face a Cavs team that has a record of 8-26, among the worst in the NBA (3rd worst - only teams worse off are Washington and New Orleans). Cleveland's coming off a victory Friday over the almost equally woeful Bobcats. The Cavs are lead by Kyrie Irving (33 points on Friday), who averages 23.1 points and 5.6 assists.
