Player of the Game: Omri Casspi

James Harden was his usual solid self throughout, leading the Rockets with 21 points. But Casspi stole the show in the fourth quarter, scoring 17 points in that frame alone. His range will drag big defenders out to the perimeter and make things a lot easier in the lane for Harden and Dwight Howard this season.
