Humps comes up big

There must be something about the Houston Rockets that brings out the best in Kris Humphries.

In the Raps only visit to Houston last season, Humphries had 16 points going 7-for-7 from the field.

Yesterday, hosting those same Rockets, Humphries had another 16 points night while pulling down nine rebounds.

For Humphries, it's all about the opportunity.

"If you look at it, when you're not playing a lot it's difficult. You always have the confidence to know you can make a shot, but to get in that rhythm during a game is tough. For me I have to be ready to play. It's not everyone's favourite role not knowing if you are going to play or not, but I guess you have to deal with it and try and produce."

SHOOTING FOR THE MOON

Raptors forward Jamario Moon extended his streak of consecutive games with a blocked shot to 13 with his first of two blocks yesterday against the Rockets.

His streak is seventh longest in franchise history. The longest Raptor streak was set by Marcus Camby who had a block in 21 consecutive games from Feb. 27-Apr. 17, 1998.

The only current Raptor with a longer streak than Moon's is Chris Bosh, who twice had 14-game runs with at least a block.

T-MAC SUMS IT UP

Rockets forward Tracy McGrady wasn't in the mood to give the Raps much credit for yesterday's comeback win.

"We missed shots. That's it," McGrady said. "Nothing they really did defensively. We just missed shots."
