James Harden not anxious about Rockets' losing streak: 'We'll be alright'

James Harden not anxious about Rockets' losing streak: 'We'll be alright'

Nick Gallo recaps the win over Houston on Christmas: "Houston is notorious for their ability to bait opponents into fouls, and the Thunder knows it needs to be more disciplined and aware moving forward".

Houston Rockets guard James Harden scored 29 points on 7-for-18 shooting Monday, to go with 8 rebounds, 14 assists, 1 block, and 2 steals over 39 minutes of a 112-107 loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Here's an interesting tidbit: The Rockets point guard and centers nearly had identical shooting percentages in the two games.

But the Rockets were not dismayed to lose a close game to an Oklahoma City team that has won 11 of its past 14 games, including five in a row. James Harden is playing like an MVP, Clint Capela is playing like an All-Star and Houston has lost just once in the games Paul has played. "I think it's important for Andre's growth as a player, as good as he is defensively, to have to get up and experience that". His answer was straightforward and simple, but with the Thunder's recent turn for the better, maybe it'll serve prophetic. "We had like five or six or seven straight stops to start the fourth and we couldn't score".

- On Saturday in Utah the Thunder managed to generate enough energy on the second half of a back to back and third game in four nights to make the crucial hustle plays.

Coach Mike D'Antoni said his team allowed too many good looks on 3s for Clippers guard Austin Rivers, left, and others in the Rockets' two consecutive losses. Also, Paul's injury is not believed to be serious, and he should return within the next week. But offensively, the Rockets have overtaken the Warriors for the top spot in the National Basketball Association rankings. "It starts on the defensive end for us". Our defense isn't really there consistently, and our offense, we aren't making shots like we need to be.

He finished with 20 points on 8-for-12 shooting, including 2 of 4 3-point shooting, continuing a career trend of strong holiday play. "He's days [away]. We've got a couple of days after this". "We're a very deep team when it comes to playing defense". He was cleared to play quickly and returned with his middle and ring fingers taped.

If they can contain them in those areas, they'll have it made because their offense has to go through him in order to be effective.

"You definitely get used to winning", Trevor Ariza said.
