HOUSTON, Jan. 11 (AP) -- The Houston Rockets didn't need Tracy McGrady -- or Yao Ming for that matter - to handle the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Luis Scola had 22 points and nine rebounds and rookie Carl Landry had 15 points and 11 rebounds, both career highs, as the Rockets beat Minnesota 113-82 on Friday night to win for the seventh time in the nine games McGrady has missed with a left knee injury.

Yao scored 15 points in only 28 minutes as the Rockets blew out the Timberwolves in the first half and cruised to their season-high fifth consecutive victory.

Luther Head scored 15 points and Rafer Alston had 11 points and five assists for Houston.

Ryan Gomes had 20 points and six rebounds for the Wolves, who have lost 15 of their last 17 games overall and 13 straight on the road.

Houston is ubber-talented even without McGrady. Bonzi Wells excells with Rick Adelman's system and can be a temporary stop-gap while McGrady sits. Luther Head is playing well and it doesn't appear that the "combo-guard" thing is bothering him a whole lot.
