The Boston Celtics find themselves in a world of problems. The club that was once leading the Atlantic Division has lost 8-straight games and finds itself near the bottom of the standings. And things would not get any easier on Monday as they hosted Dwight Howard and the Houston Rockets.

Dwight endearing himself to a few Boston youngsters.

The home side would lead in the first quarter --- but Houston would turn the tide. James Harden beating a couple Celtics to the cup.

Then it was D-12 doing his thing in the lane. Getting the lefty hook to fall. Rockets would take a 9-point lead into recess.

And they would extend the lead after the re-start. Harden pump fakes and hits the triple. He had 16. And H-town is up a dozen.

But it was Howard that did most of the damage, converting the lob for the throwdown. The Rockets centre finished with 32 points and 11 boards as Houston dumps Boston 104-92, handing the C’s their 9th straight loss.

Carmelo Anthony scored 29 points as New York beat Phoenix in overtime. San Antonio dumped New Orleans for their fifth straight win. And Alec Burks hit for a career high 34 points as Utah beat Denver.
