Golden State Warriors Lose In Grueling 2OT Matchup Against Houston Rockets

The Golden State Warriors lost just their 3rd game this season last night in a double overtime game to the Houston Rockets.

James Harden tied for his team high with 29 points. Ryan Anderson was on fire, adding 29 points as well. The Rockets also had crucial late game contributions from their bench with Eric Gordon scoring 23 and Sam Dekker with 11.

Kevin Durant led the Warriors with 39 and Curry did his thing, scoring 28 but was only 4 for 13 from 3 point land. Klay Thompson had a really rough night, making only 4 of his 20 shots for just 15 points.

The Rockets found themselves leading early and both Draymond Green and coach Steve Kerr each received a technical foul before the half, that would prove to be crucial down the stretch.

In the first overtime, it looked like the Warriors had it, being up 3 with the ball, but after a big miss, the Rockets were able to tie the game back up with a 3 of their own. Then in the second overtime, Stephen Curry fouled out for the first time since December of 2013, off an offensive charge call.

After Curry fouled out, the Warriors looked like a different team. They kept trying to feed Durant the ball and he would force shots up trying to score, and they ended up trying to go to Klay Thompson towards the end but he couldn’t get anything going all night.

The Rockets ended up winning 132-127, in a game where an NBA record number of 3 pointers were attempted – 88, 44 by each team.
