The Houston Rockets and Denver Nuggets are the first and second fastest teams in the NBA, respectively. Tonight they proved it, battling back and forth for much of the contest until Danilo Gallinari began to rain three-pointers down at the beginning of the fourth quarter.
Denver won by eight, 118-110. It was a fine game for several Rockets though, including Jeremy Lin, James Harden and Omer Asik, who held Houston's defense together whenever he was on the court, only to see it fall apart whenever he hit the bench.
Harden, Lin and Chandler Parsons combined to score 64 of Houston's 110 points.
