Saturday night the Houston Rockets took their first victory in Game three, Round two of the NBA playoffs over the Golden Staten Warriors. The Rockets got off to a slow start but it wasn’t long before they started to “Run As One” with confidence.
Eric Gordon lit up the court scoring 20 points before halftime. Then baskets began to drop. But the highlight of the night took place in the second half with PJ Tucker’s aggressive performance as he fought for the ball relentlessly and drew the foul.
The matchup ended in an overtime thrill with Harden scoring 41 points in a 126-121 victory for the Houston Rockets.
The team looks to continue their winning ways over the Warriors in Game 4 tonight at Toyota Center.
