Warriors hold on, snap Rockets' 9-game win streak

Boogie Cousins Warriors

But that was not to be, as DeMarcus Cousins turned his finest performance of the season so far and helped the Warriors beat the Rockets 106-104, which given the balance of play reflects unfairly on the Warriors who could've won this by a log bigger margin if they hadn't considered the game won, half way through the final quarter.

Harden scoffed when asked about Curry's comment.

"I think we just have a different level of focus", Draymond Green said.

We say it all the time. "I'm anxious about what's in this locker room", he said before walking away.

The Warriors were without the 10-time NBA All-Star for the trip to the Toyota Center but the likes of Klay Thompson and DeMarcus Cousins came to the fore in his absence. Why wouldn't they? I'd be surprised if they didn't feel that way. Houston shook off its early season woes and has gone 31-11 since to dig out of its early hole and get within striking distance of first place as the regular season winds down.

Eric Gordon added 17 points while the Houston bench, which played a significant role in the victory over Charlotte on Monday, produced just 18 points.

"We just had too many mistakes", Houston coach Mike D'Antoni said. A big man, that actually is capable of playing in this offense while not getting bullied on the boards on either side of the floor.

Paul sat out from December 22-Jan.

He finished the night with 27 points, eight rebounds and seven assists.

He will now become Madrid's first summer signing for Zinedine Zidane , after the Spanish club agreed to pay his €50m buyout clause.

Yet, here we are today, with Golden State having taken home each of the last two championships with a third likely on the way. As usual, Houston leads the league in 3-pointers made per game, but they just couldn't find the range against the Warriors.

The Rockets will host the Warriors riding a nine-game run of success against a Golden State squad that has dropped six of its past 10 affairs.

The Rockets have had at least four players finish in double figures in all but one game during their recent streak and have had six score more than 10 once and five players do it in two other games. "On the road, you know what it takes to win and we've been able to play with the type of intensity".

"I don't think anybody can stop me one-on-one period", he said. So it's good to have multiple guys that can step up every night.

"We didn't learn nothing that we didn't already know", guard Chris Paul said after the Rockets' nine-game winning streak was snapped and any realistic hope of catching the Warriors for the West's top seed was extinguished.

He isn't the best rebounding Center in the league but he isn't one to be bullied around the post either.

A flawless example came in Houston's last meeting against Golden State, a 118-112 victory on February 23 that got the winning streak going.

National Basketball Association scoring leader James Harden netted 29 points and added 10 assists to lead the Rockets (42-26), who also got 24 points from Chris Paul and 13 points and 13 rebounds from Clint Capela.
