Ariza, Rockets Rout Bucks


MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Trevor Ariza hit a career-high six 3-pointers, scoring 22 points, and the Houston Rockets hit 16 shots from beyond the arc to rout the Milwaukee Bucks 127-99 on Wednesday night to snap a three-game losing skid.

Shane Battier was 6 of 6 from 3-point range, one short of his career high, and finished with 20 points and 10 rebounds as Houston's long-range attack came alive in a sizzling second-half performance.

Houston scored a season-high 127 points and shot a season-high 57.5 percent from the field. The Rockets were one off the franchise record for 3-pointers, set in 1999 against Toronto and tied in 2001 against Milwaukee.
