HOUSTON (AP) — John Wall scored 24 points in his first game against his former team, leading the Houston Rockets to a 107-88 victory over the Washington Wizards. Wall was selected by Washington with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2010 draft and spent his entire career with the Wizards before he was traded to Houston in December for Russell Westbrook and a future first-round pick. Westbrook, who spent just one season in Houston, had 19 points, 11 assists and seven rebounds.
