Rockets edge past Warriors without Harden

Steve Kerr James Harden Rockets Warriors

"So, I think this is the best he's looked". They had trailed by 20 only minutes prior.

Elsewhere, Mike Conley hit some clutch free throws in the final minute and finished with 30 points as the Memphis Grizzlies added to the Lakers woes this season with a 110-105 victory.

Golden State came back from a 20-point deficit in the second quarter (28-48) and took the lead (71-70, 76-74), but the Rockets stood tall, brought their advantage back to double digits (94-106) and sealed the deal. Houston entered Saturday's game 1-2 in games without him. Golden State is 5-5 in one-possession games.

Harden reached 28 points on a driving floater with 23.3 seconds left to play, and it appeared that he might pull off a feat similar to what he did against the Dallas Mavericks on February 11, when he knocked down a 3-pointer in the final minute to keep his streak alive.

Since making his return to the lineup from a right knee injury in mid-January, Gordon has shown positive trends of improvement from beyond the arc, shooting 36.3 percent en route to knocking down 3.3 triples per contest over the last 15 games. I guess that's what they want.

"When you get assists, I've got the easy part. We move the ball well, we set screens for each other, move bodies, somebody's going to be open and he was aggressive tonight", Curry said of Cousins.

Often times, that was Jordan Bell, who saw 17 hard-to-come-by minutes, catching a pass on the short roll, only to find Andre Iguodala as his only open teammate.

Usually, Draymond Green is in that spot.

After a few games of frustration following All-Star Weekend, DeMarcus Cousins returned to stride against the Charlotte Hornets, recording his fourth straight double-double - 24 points and 11 rebounds - in the Golden State Warriors' win. He grabbed at his foot immediately and was in clear pain. While the severity is still unknown, it's bad news for a Warriors team whose bench play is already concerning.

DeMarcus Cousins had his best game of the season Monday, but received a peculiar technical foul against the Hornets.

Green was opportunistic on one particular play, as he clearly saw Rockets point guard Chris Paul blindly backing up into him, while trying to guard Steph Curry.
