                === Rockets, Warriors square off in Oakland ===
 (Sports Network) - The last time the Houston Rockets and Golden State Warriors
 met,  the Rockets matched some NBA history from long range and things got very
 chippy late in the game.
 The  two teams will  meet one week later at Oracle Arena Tuesday night and the
 Warriors  haven't  been the same since  the Rockets made 23 3-pointers against
 Golden  State dropped all four games on a recent road trip and the battle with
 Houston  started  the slide. With  the Rockets chucking up  3's to tie the NBA
 record,  Warriors  coach Mark Jackson  instructed his  team to foul to prevent
 Houston from tying the mark.
 Draymond Green and Marcus Morris were both ejected late after a minor scuffle,
 but  the Warriors struggled  the rest of their trip. They fell to the Oklahoma
 City Thunder, Memphis Grizzlies and Dallas Mavericks.
 "We  need  to learn from  our mistakes on that  road trip," said center Andrew
 Bogut,  who  missed the OKC and  Dallas games as  he's still not ready to play
 back-to-back nights. "It is only four games, but it is a wake-up call."
 Steph  Curry led the  Warriors with 18 points against the Mavs on Saturday and
 five  Golden State  players scored in double figures. Jarrett Jack also missed
 the  Dallas game with a bruised right shoulder and he's listed as questionable
 for Tuesday.
 The  Warriors, who allowed 118.5 ppg during the disastrous road trip, unveiled
 new  uniforms this  week. They  will wear  the first-ever  modern short-sleeve
 uniform, starting on Feb. 22 and for two other home games this season.
 The  Rockets  are 1-2 since  the epic victory over  the Warriors one week ago.
 They  fell  in Miami to  the defending champion  Heat, beat the Portland Trail
 Blazers  at home, then lost to the Sacramento Kings in Sacramento, 117-111, on
 James  Harden led  the way for the  Rockets against the Kings with 30. Patrick
 Patterson,  Omer Asik,  Carlos Delfino and Jeremy Lin scored in double figures
 as well.
 Houston  allowed the Kings  to shoot 55 percent from the 3-point line and went
 10-for-33 from beyond the arc.
 "They  made some threes.  They broke us down, got into the paint, collapsed us
 and  made it," said Rockets coach Kevin McHale. "We talked about two things we
 didn't  do: we didn't contain the ball which we had to do; they got where they
 wanted  to  go off the dribble,  off the pick-and-roll, off Isaiah Thomas, off
 whoever had it, and offensive rebounds. They did both."
 The Kings tallied 15 offensive rebounds against the Rockets on Sunday.
 Houston  won this season's  earlier matchup and is 18-6 in its last 24 against
 the Warriors. The Rockets have taken six of their last eight in Golden State.
