Without James Harden, Rockets attempt to clinch season series against the Warriors

Today’s game day in the NBA consisted of two matches

One of these teams has played much better in back-to-back situations than the other recently, and it just so happens to be defending National Basketball Association champion Golden State. Draymond Green chipped in a triple-double with 17 points, 14 rebounds, and 10 assists.

After being released by the Milwaukee Bucks just days before the 2017-18 regular season began, Green hadn't received any interest from other teams before the Rockets reached out and ultimately signed him on December 28. Three players of the hosts (Griffin, Jordan and Williams) scored at least 24 points, but it was not enough to extend its winning streak to five games. They scored the next five points, highlighted by a 3 from Curry, to make it 120-109 and send numerous home fans streaming for the exits.

For a team with bigger goals than regular season success, it seems ridiculous that the Rockets play so few players, and general manager Daryl Morey went out and got another wing D'Antoni can play to soak up those minutes. "We're just not quite there defensively, communication, all the stuff we can control we're not doing".

But news broke shortly after the game of a pretty nice consolation prize for Green, who has been playing on a non-guaranteed deal he originally signed on December 28.

"But we have plenty of guys who know how to play and we're going to go out there let James do what he needs to do to get better will go out there and do it we do". Houston had a rate of 10.2, while Golden State posted a mark of 16.0.

The fight began with 7:50 remaining in the third quarter of the Heat's 90-89 victory over the Raptors on Tuesday night in Toronto. With four players out due to injury the Heat with an eight-man rotation and seven of those players scored 11 points or more.

In his absence, Eric Gordon led the Rockets with 30 points. West appeared to land on the side of his left foot when he tried to stop himself to defend Paul, possibly rolling his ankle. Green scored 29 and knocked down 8 of 15 from beyond the arc. Klay Thompson added 28 points for the Warriors, who trailed by a point at halftime.

The Warriors are 27-5 when they reach 100 points, while the Rockets are 27-6. Guard Bobby Brown, who is averaging 2.5 points per game and has a non-guaranteed contract, will be waived to clear a permanent spot for Green.

Of all the great qualities Harden brings to the table, his durability has been one of his best and most consistent, so the Rockets find themselves in unchartered territory since they acquired him back in 2012. Paul received a technical foul in the fourth quarter.

It was actually the Thunder bench that made the difference in the game, as Billy Donovan's reserves began the fourth quarter on a 10-0 run that swung the momentum fully toward the visitors. "I just wanted to make sure his voice was fine".
