SAN ANTONIO (AP) — LaMarcus Aldridge had 25 points and 10 rebounds, and the San Antonio Spurs rebounded from their worst loss in three years to bash the Houston Rockets 130–99 on Wednesday night and remain undefeated at home.

San Antonio (39–7) has won 25 straight at home to open the season and 34 consecutive dating back to last season.

James Harden had 20 points and Dwight Howard added 13 for Houston.
