Just days after the Rockets were looking for some way, any way to get by while so desperately shorthanded, they never looked more complete in their surge to their place as the NBA’s hottest team.

With Clint Capela and Danuel House Jr. back from injuries, Russell Westbrook enjoying perhaps his best game with the Rockets and James Harden continuing his roll, the Rockets on Monday romped past the Trail Blazers, 132-108, with their eighth-consecutive win giving them the longest active winning streak in the NBA.

James Harden, Rockets roll past Bulls

  James Harden, Rockets roll past Bulls There was a time, way back in the beginning of the week, the Rockets were not hitting as many 3s as their opponent. That was never going to last. James Harden underlined the turnaround, hitting more than twice as many 3s as the Bulls managed on Saturday on his way to 42 points. But the Rockets had to be more encouraged with the way they shut down the Bulls on the other end to finish a second-half romp with a 117-94 win and their first three-game wining streak of the season. BOX SCORE: ROCKETS 117, BULLS 94With the Bulls making just 37.8 percent of their shots, just 4 of 32 (12.5 percent) of their 3s, the Rockets held an opponent shy of 100 points for the first time this season.

BOX SCORE: ROCKETS 132, TRAIL BLAZERS 108

Before heading out on test of a road trip to Denver and Los Angeles for a Clippers rematch, the Rockets had every starter in double figures just a game after they played with four of their top five scorers out. They led by 28 before the benches were cleared early in their top-scoring game of the season, other than the franchise record 159 they put up in Washington.

Harden had 36 points in his 33 minutes, while Westbrook and Capela each had their season-high scoring night.

Westbrook had 28 points, matching his output in the second game of the season, adding 13 rebounds and 10 assists for his third triple double of the season.

Capela, in his first game back from a concussion, scored 22 points with 20 rebounds and four blocked shots. The game was the fifth straight in which Capela set or matched his season high for rebounds, getting 20 in each of the past three.

Harden thrilled with improved Rockets defense: 'We're getting after it'

  Harden thrilled with improved Rockets defense: 'We're getting after it' The Houston Rockets aren't struggling to score while averaging 120.1 points through the first nine games of the 2019-20 campaign. However, their inability to prevent baskets has been well-documented in the early going, which is why James Harden was thrilled after the Rockets' 117-94 win over the Chicago Bulls on Saturday. "Our talk, our aggressiveness, we're getting after it," Harden said of the Rockets' defense, according to ESPN's EricHowever, their inability to prevent baskets has been well-documented in the early going, which is why James Harden was thrilled after the Rockets' 117-94 win over the Chicago Bulls on Saturday.

Rockets Blast Blazers , Blazers Badly Burnt. (In a figurative sense.) These Trailblazers are a tough test defensively for the Rockets , because even with an actual backcourt defender in Beverley, Portland basically deploys two highly capable combo guards, in Damien Lillard and CJ McCollum.

While the Rockets high-scoring backcourt combined for 64 points, C.J. McCollum and Damian Lillard were held to 38 points, with Lillard making just 4 of 15 shots for 13 points.

Harden did not begin what has become his nightly scoring spree until midway through the second quarter. At the time, he had 11 points, but had made just two field goals. The Blazers were within four.

His run began with eight points in 90 seconds. By halftime, he had collected a pair of four-point plays and another 3-pointer off a spin move roughly 28 feet from the basket.

That gave him 23 first-half points and the Blazers reason to try something else.

They switched to the trapping defense the Clippers and Pacers brought out for the second half last week. It worked as well for Portland as it had for Los Angeles and Indiana.

This time, Harden beat the traps with a few drives. But mostly, he moved the ball and the rest of the Rockets played four on three, taking the lead to 24. When Portland coach Terry Stotts called off the double teams, Harden immediately beat Lillard off the dribble. He returned to the traps, but by then, the Rockets offense was rolling and did not stop.
