Harden, Rockets rally from early deficit to beat Heat

Rockets can create some issues for the Warriors but is it enough to win a seven-game series Rockets can create some issues for the Warriors but is it enough to win a seven-game series

For starters, the Houston Rockets are 17-0 this season when Chris Paul, Clint Capela, and James Harden all play in the same game. If the Rockets are making shots, covering an 11-point spread at home against an inferior team will not be hard.

The veteran was perfectly happy with the outcome though. Defensively, the Heat are yielding 101.9 points against the opposing teams. The slow start could have been likely attributed to the Rockets still celebrating their victory against the Golden State Warriors Friday. Cousins had 44 points, 24 rebounds and 10 assists. "So that was kind of tough for us tonight, but defensively that second half we locked up, controlled the game and that was it". He is averaging a double-double, with 14.5 points, and 10.8 rebounds.

Monday will be Dragic's second straight game out of the lineup, while it will be four straight games missed for Johnson.

"That just shows what we're made out of", guard Wayne Ellington said.

Houston was at full strength for the first time in a while with Trevor Ariza and Gerald Green back after serving two-game suspensions for an altercation with the Clippers.

When it was all said and done, Jones Jr. tallied six points on 3-of-6 shooting, five rebounds and a team-high three blocks.

The Rockets are now ranked second in the National Basketball Association in scoring this season with an average of 114.7 points per game.

The Golden State Warriors caught a loss over the weekend, as the defending champions walked into Houston and fell to the Rockets, 116-108. They are first in points per game at home, with 117.61. The Rockets got going late in the first quarter and had cut the deficit to 50-46 by halftime. "We just got to stay locked in the rest of the season". "But after that our defense was solid".

Capela told reporters, per ESPN, that the Rockets "have the weapons to beat (the Warriors)".

With the win, though, Houston does hold the tie-breaker having won two of the three meetings between them this year.

The Warriors are a side who have become accustomed to making title runs unlike Houston, whose last NBA Finals appearance came way back in 1995. Monday was the first time since December 31 D'Antoni has been able to use that lineup.

"We're for real, for real".
