NBA: “Golden state” beat “Houston”, “Oklahoma” lost “clippers”
The two best teams in the Western Conference will meet for the second time this season and the first time in 2018 on Thursday when the Houston Rockets (27-9) host the Golden State Warriors (30-8) as home underdogs at the sportsbooks.
Stephen Curry led the way with 29 points, Klay Thompson chipped in 28 and Draymond Green had 17. Eric Gordon scored 30 to pace the Rockets, while swingman Gerald Green, a 31-year-old veteran who had not played in the National Basketball Association this season until signing with the Rockets last week, continued his strong play in Harden's absence.
Gerald Green's second 3-pointer in less than a minute put Houston up by two midway through the third quarter.
Durant - who is 25 points shy of 20,000 in his career - racked up 25 points, 12 rebounds, 6 assists and 4 blocks against the Mavs on Wednesday.
Gerald Green scored a season-high 27 points, Clint Capela had 21 points and eight rebounds and the Rockets (27-9) got by without the National Basketball Association scoring leader in routing the Magic 116-98.
Bear Attacks Packers Fan in Florida
A Florida man was attacked by a bear outside his home in Naples Tuesday night - while he was wearing a Packers T-shirt. He managed to get up and back into his apartment where his 7-year-old was sleeping before the bear could attack again.
Both teams failed to capitalize on their final possessions in the fourth-Kuzma missed a three for L.A. and Houston couldn't get off a shot-sending the game to overtime.
"They're going to play the same way".
The Rockets are 2-5-1 ATS in their last 8 games playing on 1 days rest, 1-4 ATS in their last 5 road games and 1-7 ATS in their last 8 games overall. They have so much offensive firepower it's disgusting and with Durant seemingly learning how to play defense overnight the Warriors are as scary as ever.
"I'm afraid to talk to him because I'll mess it up", D'Antoni said of Green.
"I just think we kind of ran out of gas", Gordon said. We need to get used to what we might see down the road. The Clippers, falling to 3 games below.500, were led by Lou Williams (still not traded, as you can see) and DeAndre Jordan with 26 points each, while Blake Griffin added 24.
