Rockets end skid at 20, Wall has 1st triple-double since ’16

HOUSTON (AP) — The Houston Rockets ended their 20-game losing streak, as John Wall had his first triple-double in five years in a 117-99 victory over the Toronto Raptors. Houston’s skid was tied for the ninth-worst in NBA history and the longest since Philadelphia’s record-setting, 28-game losing streak across the 2014-15 and 2015-16 seasons. But Wall had 19 points, 10 assists and 11 rebounds, his first triple-double since Feb. 5, 2016. That helped the Rockets got their first win since Feb. 4. Houston also handed the Raptors their ninth straight loss, which now represents the NBA’s longest active losing streak.
