NBA: “Golden state” beat “Houston”, “Oklahoma” lost “clippers”

Kevin Durant with James Harden

Stephen Curry's 29 points and a triple-double from Draymond Green propelled the Golden State Warriors to a 124-114 National Basketball Association victory over the Houston Rockets on Thursday (Jan 4).

The Warriors extended their road winning streak to nine games and have won a league-best 16 road games this season. They scored the next five points, highlighted by a 3-pointer from Curry, to make it 120-109 and send numerous home fans streaming for the exits.

With Durant sidelined by a calf strain Thursday, the old guard arose for the Warriors (31-8).

He clinched that record Wednesday night against the Rockets, when he logged 17 points, 14 rebounds and 10 assists in Golden State's 124-114 victory.

Stephen Curry led the Warriors with 29 points on 10-of-20 shooting from the field, 4-of-10 from 3, 9 rebounds and 5 assists. Guard Bobby Brown, who is averaging 2.5 points per game and has a non-guaranteed contract, will be waived to clear a permanent spot for Green.

But the Rockets' long-term goal is to have a lineup that can get hot and outscore the Warriors in four out of seven games.

Looney temporarily climbed up the depth charter over rookie forward Jordan Bell, who fell for Chris Paul's pump fakes way to often en route to a 28-point performance.

The Rockets led 63-62 at halftime. He also made the free throw. D'Antoni prefers nearly a more straight-forward approach, giving his best players the ball, and setting up plays for them to make something happen.

This will be his sixth missed game this season. Paul received a technical foul in the fourth quarter.

Those shots will either turn into layups or he'll pull the ball out to get a better shot for one of his teammates, but Green's mid-range tendencies will have to be surgically removed from his game if he's going to continue to get minutes for the Rockets.

"I just think we kind of ran out of gas", Gordon said. "I just wanted to make sure his voice was fine". Durant said his year with the Longhorns built the foundation of who he is today as a player and person.

"Gerald Green just kept them in the game nearly singlehandedly", Kerr said. "Feels like you should leave him open because it is all the insane ones he makes".
