(Sports Network) – Tracy McGrady scored a game-high 25 points and added six
rebounds to lead the Houston Rockets over the Atlanta Hawks, 92-69, on
Wednesday at the Toyota Center.

Yao Ming tallied 23 points and eight boards for the Rockets, who bounced back
from their worst loss of the season. Houston began a six-game homestand with
three straight wins over Philadelphia, New Orleans and San Antonio, but
dropped a 102-78 contest against the Dallas Mavericks on Saturday.

Before Wednesday’s game, the Rockets activated guard Tyronn Lue from the
injured list. Meanwhile, the club placed Reece Gaines on the injured list with
a foot injury.

McGrady is averaging 22.8 points, 5.9 rebounds and 4.8 assists in his last 10
games. He has scored in double-digits in all 20 games that he has played in
this season and has recorded two double-doubles.

The Rockets are off until Friday when they host the Golden State Warriors.
Last season, the teams split four games.
