Houston Rockets: Houston may have the tallest guy in the league on its roster but it's the little things that have killed the Rockets on their 1-4 road trip. "It really felt like a training camp practice, where we did a lot of things to help us pay attention to details," Maurice Taylor said in the Houston Chronicle. "When you're in a slump and not playing well, you always go back to your basics, because once you get your basics in line and get back to the things that had you winning in the first place, it helps you. You've got to go back to the little things, because it's not really any large things that are hurting us. It's not passing the ball well, mishandling the ball, free throws. It's the little stuff like that that is killing us. I think sometimes with the season being so long and you not having a lot of practices, you get away from the little things sometimes and just focus on the big things, which is the games."
