The Houston Rockets (32-12) defeated the Golden State Warriors (37-10) in dramatic fashion. Coming down the stretch, James Harden hit a big 3 over two-time MVP Stephen Curry.
The Warriors, coming into tonight, were on a 14-game road winning streak, the third-best in NBA history. The Toyota Center was loud and proud and the Rockets responded.
James Harden is starting to get back into his groove. In addition to some incredible defense, he had 22 points and shot 50% in a night where Chris Paul was the primary ballhandler.
Speaking of Chris Paul, he was fantastic all night on both ends of the court. He had his second-best scoring game of the season and led the Rockets to victory.
P.J. Tucker seems to show up against the defending champs. He had some big rebounds down the stretch and also a huge 3.
The Rockets were able to win despite missing two weapons, Trevor Ariza and Gerald Green. The Warriors were also without Andre Iguodala and Jordan Bell.
Eric Gordon didn’t show up, scoring just 6 points on 2/14 shooting (0/9 from deep). If the Rockets want to beat the Warriors come playoff time,EG will need to be better.
