Strange thing happened en route to another Houston collapse: The Rockets showed some heart.
James Posey was simply huge on both ends of the floor while Steve Francis hit a clutch shot with just under a minute to go and followed that up with 2 free throws as the Rockets topped the Grizzlies 100-95 in Memphis Monday night.
The win snaps the Rockets 4-game slide.
Posey was huge, picking two passes late, including what proved to be the game-winning defensive play when he picked a Grizzlie pass with 40 seconds to go and Houston up 4.
Props also to Maurice Taylor, who converted a three-point play in the final minutes and stripped Pau Gasol on a key play as well.
