The Sixers fell to 0-3 thanks to a 114-96 setback

(SportsNetwork. Gary Harris Jersey .com) - The Houston Rockets will try to become the NBAs first 4-0 team Monday night when they visit the Wells Fargo Center to take on the Philadelphia 76ers. The Rockets have enjoyed an easy schedule thus far in the 2014-15 campaign with road wins over the Los Angeles Lakers and Utah Jazz, then a home victory over the Boston Celtics on Saturday. Those three teams own a combined 3-7 record. The Sixers are winless early in the season, and they can become the Eastern Conferences first 0-4 squad. The Lakers own that ugly record out west. Against the Celtics, Houston built a 14-4 cushion in the first quarter and never looked back. They posted a wire-to-wire, 104-90 victory. All three of Houstons wins this season have seen the team go over the 100- point plateau. The Rockets rank seventh in the league in scoring and their plus-43 scoring margin over opponents is the highest through the first three games in franchise history since the 1993-94 team was a plus-45. That squad, led by Hakeem Olajuwon, won the NBA title that season. James Harden filled the stat sheet with 26 points, eight rebounds, six assists and four steals versus the Cs. Terrence Jones posted 25 points and 10 rebounds for the Rockets and Dwight Howard finished with 14. I like the spirit of the team. Theyre willing to work and if youre willing to work, youre going to get better, Rockets head coach Kevin McHale said. Point guard Patrick Beverley is questionable with a strained left hamstring. He missed the win over the Celtics. The Sixers fell to 0-3 thanks to a 114-96 setback in their home opener Saturday against the Miami Heat. Its the first 0-3 start for the team since 2010-11. Tony Wroten had 21 points and 10 assists for the Sixers to lead the way. Brandon Davies netted a career-high 18 points and Hollis Thompson added 10 in the setback. The Sixers shot an admirable 52.2 percent, but went ice cold in the fourth quarter. Philadelphia was limited to 4-of-15 shooting from the field and 0- for-5 from beyond the arc over the final 12 minutes. That performance came one night after failing to score a single point over the final 8:21 in a loss to the Milwaukee Bucks. We were good for three periods, said Sixers coach Brett Brown. We didnt roll over. Ive seen fantastic signs in our first three games. The NBA, players are so good. Its unforgiving. Mondays game will be the second of a four-game homestand which will see Orlando and Chicago come to the City of Brotherly Love. These two teams split two meetings last season, but Houston has lost three straight in Philadelphia. Devin Harris Jersey .

Warren Gatlands side entertain Italy on Saturday looking for the victory which would secure second spot in the Six Nations table.Italy will be desperate to improve on their 58-15 defeat to Ireland in Dublin last weekend, but Roberts believes Wales can rectify some of the errors that cost the team dearly against England. It was one of the toughest losses, certainly, Roberts said. There is no hiding away from that, and the players are desperately disappointed. Roberts says team will learn from England defeat at Twickenham Its a tough one to take, losing to England and theyve won the championship. Huge congratulations to them, and best of luck to them in Paris. You have to learn from disappointments. In fact, you learn more from disappointments than winning.Thats sport. You dont win all the time, and credit to England, they played a better rugby match than us. We have to learn from it, take the loss on the chin, face the music, roll our sleeves up and play well this week against an Italian side who wwill be determined to turn around their loss away to Ireland. Kenneth Faried Jersey. Its a new week, and we are fortunate to play a sport and do a job where we can rectify things and right a few wrongs. We are playing for second place now, and that has to be our goal going into the last week. It would be much nicer to be playing to win the tournament, but it wasnt to be. Warren Gatland has gone over last weekends loss to England We had a meeting on Monday, spoke about England and that has been put to bed. There are so many variables, and as players a lot of us have been scratching our heads as to why we didnt turn up in the first-half.Its hard to put a finger on why, but I am not going to make excuses. Thats not what we are about. We are not going to point at loads of little things. Ultimately, we lost a game of rugby, and they played better than us. Thats the black and white of it.
