HOUSTON (AP) - Aaron Brooks and Carl Landry scored 24 points apiece, and the Houston Rockets salvaged the last game of their
longest homestand of the season by beating the Golden State Warriors 119-97 on Tuesday night.

Trevor Ariza scored 18 points and Chuck Hayes grabbed 13 rebounds for the Rockets, who finished their six-game homestand with a disappointing 2-4 record.

Monta Ellis scored 34 points for the Warriors, who've lost six in a row overall and 12 of their last 13 road games. Corey Maggette, Golden State's second-leading scorer, sat out with a hip pointer.

The Rockets shot 50 percent (43 of 86) and outrebounded the Warriors 57-35 to beat Golden State for the ninth straight time.
