Warriors' victory wakes up Rockets, Basketball News & Top Stories

But the Houston Rockets - trailing by 13 points in the last 4 minutes - still found a way to make a game out of it. The Warriors were playing without Kevin Durant, who was out with a sprained ankle. Chris Paul was the Rockets' second-leading scorer with 24 points on 7-for-12 shooting.

The Rockets nearly completed a comeback tonight. It was his highest point total since joining the team in January.

Tonight, it was not to be for Houston. Stephen Curry made two free throws with eight seconds remaining to make it 106-103, and James Harden hit one of two from the line at the other end with 6.4 seconds to go.

As Beyonce, a Houston native, sang on "6 Inch", (although not at all related to sports) "Come back, come back, come back". The Warriors have seemingly been complacent for a good part of the season, yet still hold the No. 1 seed in the West and appear to rise to the challenge whenever they decide to up the effort.

After being blamed by both fans and media for the Warriors' recent woes, Cousins - who declined to speak to reporters over the past few days - brushed off the criticism postgame, acknowledging that he appreciated his teammates publicly defending him.

Warriors had a road game against the Houston Rockets team that had twice earlier this season beaten the Warriors with one of their superstars missing and came into the game with the hottest streak in the National Basketball Association with 9 consecutive wins on the trot. We're all learning, me too.

Harden had 29 points and 10 assists for the Rockets, but shot just 2 of 12 on 3-pointers. "I thought he did a phenomenal job of getting down on the block".

Cousins was playing just his 20th game for the Warriors since joining the team previous year before spending time on the sidelines owing to an Achilles injury.

Golden State had a seven-point lead to start the fourth and scored the first seven points of the period, highlighted by a 3 from Thompson, to push the lead to 92-78.

Now, on the latest episode of 'As the Warriors Turn', the team will again try and capture the rhythm that's eluded them in the hostile, but historically comforting confines of Oklahoma City in Saturday night's matchup against the Thunder. "But we've all been in this business long enough to know how it goes". Sometimes at home we kind of just relax and think "oh we're gonna win". He became the first player not named Harden to lead the Rockets in scoring in 43 games when the Beard got into foul trouble on Sunday night and Gordon's 26 points led the team over Dallas. "We tend to do better when people question us and even when we question ourselves".

"That's the goal", coach Steve Kerr said following Friday's practice at the University of Houston.

"But it makes it hard no matter who we're playing, if you don't give a team second-chance opportunities". It seems like they still have the ability to get to that level based on Wednesday night's win.
