Houston Rockets vs. Golden State Warriors: Postgame Grades, Analysis for Houston
Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

In one of the more up-and-down games you'll see this season, the Houston Rockets defeated the Golden State Warriors by the score of 94-88.

Behind Omer Asik's defense, Carlos Delfino's three-pointers and James Harden getting to the basket and getting great shots for his teammates whenever he wanted, the Rockets closed the first half on a 22-7 run, heading into the third quarter with a stunning one-point lead after some inconsistent play throughout the first 20 minutes.

After a back-and-forth third quarter that ended with a tied score, the Rockets held the Warriors scoreless for nearly the opening six minutes of the fourth quarter—until Stephen Curry drained a three-pointer. This stretch of defense was huge, and the Rockets eventually closed it out by getting to the free-throw line a ton in the closing minutes.
