It was back in early February when the Houston Rockets won their last game before going on a 20-game losing streak. During that period, the team nosedived to near-bottom of the Western Conference. The agony was finally over as the Rockets defeated the Raptors at home 117-99.

Houston’s star John Wall, who had 19 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists for the winners, expressed support to the team’s head coach Stephen Silas after the game, pledging his loyalty to him.

“I just told him we finally got one. He was happy and I know after what his emotions were the last 24 hours it was big to come out here and compete and play at a high level for him and get a win. Like I told him, I’m riding with him no matter what and he said the same thing to me,” Wall said.

The Rockets are currently in the 14th place in the Western Conference with 12 wins and 30 losses.
