Harden's fifth straight 40-point game helps Rockets top Warriors in OT

Harden's fifth straight 40-point game helps Rockets top Warriors in OT

Yeah, I mean they're obviously an unbelievable team again, and we think we can get there and give them a real run for their money again.

"People want to say great things about our front office and our coaching staff, and that's always appreciated". Harden finished with 44 points, 15 assists and 10 rebounds in a titanic struggle between the Western Conference powers who met in a seven-game National Basketball Association playoff semi-final last season that was won by Golden State.

"But I think the one thing we know is that this is really about James Harden, Chris Paul and our star-level players". He had a 50-point game and 47-point effort last month, and he's scored over 40 points per game in five straight contests. "He is the master of isolation and the step-back three and drawing fouls".

On Thursday's showdown against the Warriors, Capela had his third 20-point, 20-rebound outing of the season.

His jumper with 5:37 left in regulation cut Golden State's lead to 112-111.

Houston also overcame a 20-point second-half deficit to come away with the victory.

The Kings, who have been a pleasant surprise this season, got an efficient 29-point production from shooting guard Buddy Hield. After struggling to find his stroke from deep, Thompson is 10 for 17 on 3-pointers the past three games.

When asked how active Houston will be when it comes to the trade deadline, which is February 7, Morey said the franchise is looking to add a piece that will give the team an upgrade. Houston was just 6 of 23 from long range, 3 for 9 by Harden, while the Warriors shot 62.8 per cent. "So I felt badly, honestly", Popovich said of the booing.
