Rockets End Warriors Road Winning Streak

Although Harden returned in time to face the Warriors after missing Houston's previous matchup with Golden State, the Rockets were short-handed without Trevor Ariza and Gerald Green, who served the second of their two-game suspension after their post-game altercation with the Los Angeles Clippers on Wednesday night. As for Paul, his scoring average is up from a year ago and he's holding steady as the No. 6 player in nine-category leagues per game on the season. You have to play at home and on the road, so it really doesn't matter. We just got to get ready for [New York].

"On the bright side, we know we can play a lot better". The Splash Brothers combined for 27 points on 9-of-31 shooting while the other duo put up 55 on 18-of-36. They are, without a doubt, the two best teams in the league.

While the Warriors and the Rockets both fancy their chances of making a deep run in the play-offs, last season's finalists - the Cleveland Cavaliers - dare not look too far. "And then we finally did, but we just didn't have the right amount of focus it takes to win a game like that".

"I personally didn't have the right vision on the floor", Curry said. The Rockets (31-12), inundated by injuries throughout the first half of this season, were nearly whole against the Timberwolves at Toyota Center, and the glimpse of their productivity was telling.

"The season starts over when you're in the playoffs anyway, so it don't matter", Durant told reporters.

Golden State got out to a four-point lead after Kevin Durant hit a 20-footer with 6:47 to play.

"It's game 40-what? Seven, eight?" asked during the media scrum.

James Harden hit the biggest shot of the night while still recovering from a hamstring injury, Chris Paul went postal for 33 points, 11 rebounds and seven assists, and the Rockets held off the Warriors, 116-108, to come away with their biggest win of the season.

"The guy is a victor, he's been a victor, he's going to win", D'Antoni said.

Through the first three months of the season, the Warriors are 37-9, would have to go into a lengthy slump to even have a worry about losing the No. 1 overall seed in the postseason, boast a 21-3 road record, and seem to be able to flip the switch at any important point in any game they deem meaningful. Wiggins finished with 16 points.

The big question the last couple of years in the National Basketball Association has been whether anyone could take down the Golden State Warriors in a best of seven series. "The ball was moving, defensively we were communicating". The Wolves shot just 46.9 percent from the field, 33.3 percent from beyond the arc, and a mortifying 66.7 percent from the free throw line.
