HOUSTON (AP) — Justise Winslow scored 20 points and the Memphis Grizzles pounded Houston 133-84 on Sunday night for the Rockets’ 11th straight loss. In just his fourth game back after missing more than a year because of a hip injury, Winslow — playing in his hometown — had his best scoring night since October 2019. Memphis had lost three of four before blowing out the slumping Rockets. Houston has its longest losing streak since a 15-game skid in November and December 2001.  The 84 points are the Rockets’ lowest total since Nov. 8, 2018, in a loss to Oklahoma City. Houston was 4 of 45 3s on 3-pointers. John Wall and Jae’Sean Tate each had 14 points for the Rockets.
