James Harden simply could not be stopped.  He scored 35 points last night against the Golden State Warriors in a 97-96 victory, bringing the Rockets within one game of tying the series with the reigning NBA champs.

The Rockets took advantage of the absence of star guard Stephen Curry.   The leading MVP candidate sprained his ankle in the end of Game 1, and decided to play it safe by sitting out his second game of the series in Game 3.  The Warriors had beaten the Rockets without Curry earlier in the season, but simply couldn’t come out with a W which would have put the Warriors up a commanding 3-0 lead.

The game came down to the final seconds.  But James Harden came through for the Rockets, hitting the go ahead jumper with 2.7 ticks left in regulation.  The Warriors used their final timeout to possibly win the game. But a costly turnover by forward Draymond Green robbed the Warriors of even a shot.

The Warriors hope to bounce back in Game 4 in Houston.
