Luis Scola scored a season high 30 points, but it wasn't enough as the Houston Rockets fell to  the Cleveland Cavaliers 118-107. Houston has been in a slump as of late to say the least, having lost 6 of their last 7 games. Cleveland has been hot lately, coming off impressive road wins at Denver and Oklahoma City.

Houston is still without guard Kyle Lowry, who remains in a hospital in New York with abdominal distress. There is no timetable for his return. The Rockets are in huge need of a guard right now, and his absence is a huge part of Houston's losing streak.

For the Cavaliers Antawn Jamison scored 28 points and rookie Kyrie Irving came through again in the fourth quarter, scoring 21 points on the night.

The Rockets need to get healthy, and start playing as a team again if they hope to make the playoffs this season.
