The Spurs traveled a rocky road last season, and unfortunately for them the road hasn’t gotten any smoother. They fell 112-102 to Golden State on Monday.

Meanwhile, winning is just a little bit easier when your three-point shooting is a whole 22.6% better than the opposition, a fact the Rockets proved on Sunday. They came out on top against Sacramento by a score of 112-104. The win came about thanks to a strong surge starting at the 9:10 mark of the second quarter, when the Rockets were facing a 42-29 deficit.

The Rockets can attribute much of their success to Fred VanVleet, who almost dropped a double-double on 22 points and nine assists.

The Spurs came up short against the Rockets in their previous meeting on Tuesday, falling 114-101.
