Warriors' Kevin Durant on Rockets: 'They're very tough'

Warriors' Kevin Durant on Rockets: 'They're very tough'

However, while Harden looked a bit rusty in his return from a seven-game absence, the Rockets are a risky team with Paul and Harden on the court together and I think there's value with them and the points in this one as there's always the chance that coach Kerr might rest a starter. Paul led the Rockets with 33 points, 11 rebounds and seven assists. And we said if James plays 15 minutes the first half, the second half, we can kind of fudge it a little bit as long as it wasn't long stretches.

Curry and his backcourt partner Klay Thompson combined to shoot 9 for 31 and totaled 27 points.

The team was ecstatic to be completing this five-game, cold-weather road trip, the final extended trip of the season.




The Miami Heat, chasing the Cavs for third in the Eastern Conference, took advantage of Cleveland's struggles as they erased a 10-point fourth-quarter deficit to edge the Charlotte Hornets 106-105. By then, with the Golden State offense rolling, the Rockets seemed unable to do much to slow them, having to rely on whatever offense Harden and Paul could manufacture to keep pace. "And out of the 19 turnovers, it didn't feel like many of them were forced by the defense". As a team, the Rockets shot 47 percent from the field and 17 of 39 from the three-point line as they dominated the first half by 63-50 before cruising in the second half. Eric Gordon was off, missing all nine of his 3-pointers.

Houston Rockets guard Chris Paul remembers what critics said about him and James Harden joining forces, and he responded in a tweet Saturday night that's since been deleted.

Capela said the win proved what the Rockets could do if they faced the Warriors in May. After the game in the locker room, players were dismissing the narrative that they dropped a significant game. What followed was back-and-forth battle that came out with the Rockets on top. Durant put in a jumper over Gordon to pull the Warriors within one, but Tucker sank a jumper in the lane. Thompson twice missed 3s to allow the Rockets to stay in front, setting up Harden for the clincher.
