In a stunning display, Dillon Brooks scored 24 second-half points, leading the Houston Rockets to a 103-96 victory over the Memphis Grizzlies. 

Brooks, in his return to the FedExForum, put on a show with a season-high 26 points, securing the Rockets' second road victory and a 3-0 lead over the Grizzlies in the regular season. Despite a challenging start, the Rockets rallied in the third quarter, outscoring the Grizzlies 30-19.

Jalen Green bounced back with 14 points, including six in the decisive third period. Fred VanVleet contributed with 16 points, eight assists, six rebounds, four steals, and two blocks.

Facing a tie game at 94 with 1:51 left, the Rockets secured the win with clutch plays from VanVleet and Brooks. The victory marked a special homecoming for Brooks, who returned to a warm reception and a tribute video after six years with the Grizzlies.

Houston's defense improved, limiting Jaren Jackson Jr. to 22 points, and despite Desmond Bane's impressive 28 points and 13 rebounds, the Rockets secured the win. Brooks' pivotal role in ending a three-game losing streak in Memphis showcased his impact as the leading scorer.


The Rockets, now 3-1 when Brooks scores 20 or more points, look to continue their momentum in a three-game road trip, starting with a matchup against the Milwaukee Bucks on Sunday night at the Fiserv Forum.
