Rockets tie series with defiant road win

Harden's 30 points help Rockets win to level series

Green wound up with 11 points, 13 rebounds and eight assists while going at it with Paul all night in Game 4 - the first nail-biter so far in a series that had featured only lopsided results of 13 points or more.

"I thought this is the highest level we've ever played defensively, without a doubt", Rockets coach Mike D'Antoni said. "They've done it all year, and they'll keep doing it". It was a victory that snapped Golden State's NBA-record 16-game home playoff winning streak. After elimination by the Golden State Warriors in 2015 and 2016, Rockets general manager Daryl Morey all but confirmed the Bay Area fetish. The Golden State Warriors have one of the most talented all-around rosters the National Basketball Association has ever seen, and it would have taken a monumental collapse for them to lose a 3-1 series lead. Both Curry and Klay Thompson missed consecutive 3 pointers.

For head coach Steve Kerr, the fourth quarter was easily explainable, as he believed exhaustion was the reason the Warriors faltered late. "Draymond [Green] was trying to call one around four seconds, once he got trapped, and at that point the officials weren't looking and they're not going to look down at our bench".

Though the pressure to perform is heightened for Harden and Paul, Rockets players and D'Antoni agree that they can't get it done without plenty of help from Houston's supporting cast. "We know what we have to do and see if we can do it against a great team".

Golden State trailed 91-86 with 3 minutes, 30 seconds left following a pair of free throws by Eric Gordon, then Curry converted a three-point play moments later. Thompson could not shake the Rockets' Trevor Ariza and ended up casting a 16-foot air-ball turnaround as the game essentially ended.

"It's easy to wake up today and kind of think we lost a huge opportunity, whatever this and that and think negatively", he said. The Cavaliers also tied 2 - 2 with the Boston Celtics.

"Our normal sub pattern obviously was skewed with Andre's absence", Kerr said. We just go out and play. They held the Warriors to just 12 points in the fourth quarter, with only three field goals.

With all five starters scoring, the Warriors put up the game's first 12 points, holding the Rockets scoreless on 0-for-8 shooting for more than five minutes. In fact, Green tried to make the smart play by signaling for a timeout with five seconds remaining and Golden State scrambling while trailing by two points.

The Warriors came out firing against the Rockets in Game 4 of the Western Conference Finals and entered the 4th quarter with a 10 point lead.
