Watch Rockets erase 12-point deficit in two minutes, they go on to beat Wolves in OT

4 Comments

Minnesota had Saturday night’s game in hand, ahead of Houston 93-81 with 2:10 left in the contest.

But as you can see for yourself above, the Rockets went on a late 14-2 run to tie the game and force overtime against a scrambling Timberwolves defense. Eventually, the Rockets went on to win their 10th straight game in the extra period, 111-109. The real key to the Rockets double-digit win streak? They are allowing 98.4 points per 100 possessions on defense, second best in the NBA in that stretch. They are up to 14th in the NBA overall and have played fairly well on that end since the return of Patrick Beverley.

James Harden had 28 points, 13 assists, and nine rebounds, while Ryan Anderson led the way for the Rockets with 29.

Against the Pacers last night, James Ennis missed all three of his 3-point attempts… that counted. And he makes this one after fouling out?

Mike Conley more than picked up the slack to lead the Grizzlies to victory.

The Pelicans are effectively out of the playoff race, but Dante Cunningham and Anthony Davis are still competing — even if it looks a little silly.

That tone and a big game from DeMarcus Cousins (29 points, 16 rebounds, six assists) led to a 121-118 win over the Mavericks.

Goran Dragic is very good at alley-oops.

Too good.

With a “shot” like that falling, the Heat trounced the Knicks, 105-88.

Since trading for him, the Hawks have gotten Tim Hardaway Jr. to buy in defensively.

After this help defense on 76ers center Richaun Holmes cost him dearly, I wouldn’t blame Hardaway if he gave up on the endeavor entirely.
