With Ryan Anderson out for the next two weeks, the Rockets will give more minutes to bench players Lou Williams and Sam Dekker. Williams has missed his last 12 three-pointers the last four games and is shooting .348 in his last three contests."A little bit up and down on his shot," Mike D'Antoni said of Williams. "He hasn't been real consistent, he manufacturers points somehow either getting to the foul line or assists (3.2 last five games). He started off so well you think he's going to make every shot and it's not fair to him, but he's good. He comes off the bench, we can rely on him to get some points or generate some points."
