Blazers overcome Warriors in thriller; Clippers stun Celtics; Rockets win 10th straight

Rockets officially sign former All-Star Joe Johnson

Taking to Twitter on Wednesday, Rockets general manager posted a photo of Mike D'Antoni, Chris Paul and James Harden with the caption, "These guys now have the #1 offense ever".

The Houston Rockets (43-13) are now an astounding 30 games over.500 after their win tonight over the Minnesota Timberwolves (35-25).

James Harden had 28 points, nine rebounds and nine assists, and the Rockets fought off a late rally to get their 10th straight win, 100-91 over the Kings in Houston on Wednesday night. Bogdan Bogdanovic paced Sacramento with 20 points and five assists while Garrett Temple added 13 points off the bench.

Chris Paul scored the first two of his 17 points of the period with a finger roll on the first possession. Tobias Harris added 21 points, Danilo Gallinari had 20 and Lou Williams 19 for the Clippers.

The Wizards rallied from a 27-point deficit late in the first half to take the lead late in the third quarter.

While Johnson, 36, has averaged just 8.6 points and 23.1 minutes per game since signing a two-year contract with the Jazz before the 2016-17 season, the veteran still remains a potent playoff weapon. It was Durant's fifth career 50-point game and first this season.
