The Houston Rockets bounced back in Game 2 of the Western Conference Finals, smashing the Golden State Warriors 127-105 to even the series at one victory apiece. James Harden and Eric Gordon both scored 27 points for Houston, which limited the Warriors to a 9-of-30 three-point clip. Kevin Durant amassed 38 points, but Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green combined for just 30 points. They were a meager 3-of-14 from long distance. Game 3 of the series will be at Oracle Arena, where Golden State is 6-0 in the playoffs.
