HOUSTON -- What was once a legitimate concern for the Rockets over how big a hole theyd find themselves in after opening the season with seven of eight games on the road turned into glee following their victory in San Antonio on Wednesday night.With their 101-99 win, the Rockets (5-3) closed a five-game road swing that took them through Cleveland and New York, Atlanta, Washington D.C. and San Antonio with a 3-2 mark that seemed improbable given the amount of time needed to build chemistry under a new coach and with a largely reconfigured roster and rotation.Instead, the Rockets will host the Spurs on Saturday night at Toyota Center somewhat galvanized not only by their successful road trip, but by the gritty performance they showcased in outlasting San Antonio in the finale of their roadie.We know how good we are and we know how good we can be, said Rockets forward Ryan Anderson after the win. Its tough to win in this building. Theyre a team that obviously has some great players and to get a win in here, youve got to be happy.The Rockets continue to learn on the fly, having entrusted James Harden with the lead guard duties while also overcoming a rotation shortened by the loss of guard Patrick Beverley, who is slated to return from knee surgery later this month. Houston coach Mike DAntoni tweaked his lineup midway through the road trip, inserting swingman Corey Brewer aside Harden and shifting guard Eric Gordon to the bench in search of some offensive punch with the second unit.Harden has been sensational, averaging 30.6 points, 7.8 rebounds and a league-leading 13 assists. He leads the NBA in assist percentage (62.0), is fourth in usage rate (33.8 percent), and entered Friday third in player efficiency rating (32.3). Because the Rockets have relied so heavily on Harden to both score and facilitate, its no shock their offense collapses in those 10.4 minutes per game when he rests.Houston owns a 10.7 net rating in the 301 minutes Harden has played. Without Harden, the Rockets net rating is minus-28.5 over 83 minutes. When the second unit squandered an 11-point second-half lead against the Spurs, Harden was forced to reenter earlier than usual in the fourth quarter to stave off the San Antonio rally.We ask so much from him, DAntoni said of Harden.The Spurs (6-3) snapped a surprising three-game home losing skid with a 96-86 win over the Pistons on Friday night. When they opened the season with a 29-point drubbing of the Warriors on the road, it seemed like business as usual for the Spurs.But San Antonio has been undermined by backcourt injuries, with Tony Parker (knee) returning from a three-game hiatus one game after Danny Green (eye) made his season debut. Like Houston, the Spurs underwent roster upheaval during the offseason, and the result of those changes has been basketball not quite up to snuff.It could be a bunch of things but the bottom line is weve just got to get it done, said Spurs guard Patty Mills. And its not like we havent got it done before. Weve done it, we know how to do it, its a matter of going out and getting it done. We understand that its not going to be easy every night and it shouldnt be.

NAPA, Calif. -- The Oakland Raiders lost two players to injuries in the exhibition opener with starting defensive end Mario Edwards Jr. sidelined by a hip injury and tight end Gabe Holmes out with an ankle injury.Coach Jack Del Rio said Monday that Edwards will miss a few weeks but wont need surgery after getting injured Friday night at Arizona. Holmes has a more significant injury -- a high ankle sprain and a broken bone in the ankle that could put him on season-ending injured reserve.With the season set to start in less than four weeks, Edwards status for the opener at New Orleans is now in question. After having his rookie season cut short by a neck injury, Edwards was being counted on as a key cog on Oaklands defensive line with his ability to be a strong force on the outside against the run or rush the passer from the inside.Edwards, a second-round pick out of Florida State in 2015, made 10 starts as a rookie and was emerging as a key player on Oaklands improving defense late last season before getting hurt. Edwards had 2 1/2 sacks, provided pressure on the quarterback and was stout against the run.The injury to Edwards will give more opportunity to Denico Autry, who started eight games last year. Autry had 20 tackles and three sacks last season after making the team the previous year aas an undrafted free agent from Mississippi State.ddddddddddddIts cool to work with the starters but its pretty much the next-man-up thing, Autry said. I just have to show them what I got and what I can do.Autry missed the start of training camp with a wrist injury and is still wearing a cast on his right arm. Del Rio said Autry showed rust on Friday night in Arizona but brings a high energy level and versatility to the defense.Hes a rugged, athletic guy that can kind of go in between, outside or inside, Del Rio said. He plays typically sub for us as a tackle, and as an end in base. We like him. Hes a good, rugged player.Holmes spent most of last season on the practice squad after impressing the Raiders as an undrafted free agent out of Purdue. He was promoted to the active roster in November but did not appear in any games.Holmes was expected to compete with Mychal Rivera for the third tight end spot behind Lee Smith and Clive Walford.Game notes Starting MLB Ben Heeney left practice limping after getting tangled up in pass coverage but tweeted later that Im good. ...
