HOUSTON,TX -  The Rockets got back on track Saturday, beating the Miami Heat 115-79.  It came a night after Houston fell flat in New Orleans, losing by 26 points.

Saturday's big win showed the depth this Houston team is starting to develop. While the team was led by its stars, James Harden scoring 28 points, Dwight Howard with 23, four other Rockets ended up in double figures. Two of the four were Rockets newcomers, Josh Smith and Corey Brewer.

Smith and Brewer are bringing plenty of excitement to the team.

"They both play defense. They both play very hard and they bring the defensive mentality that the Houston Rockets need to go further in the playoffs," Rockets fan Ronald Wells said.

"Once they've had a few practices together, you'll start seeing some better results like you saw against Miami," another fan, Craig Schraub, added.

Having moved past Miami, Houston next takes on another Eastern Conference power, the Chicago Bulls.  That game is Monday night at 7 PM.
