Harden's triple-double helps Rockets top Cavs 117-112 - Mar 13, 2017

James Harden
James Harden (6'5''-SG-89, college: Arizona St.) and the Houston Rockets have shown at times this season that they could be title contenders. Lately, however, they've failed to rise to the occasion against the NBA's elite. That changed on Sunday night when Harden had a triple-double of 38 points, 11 assists and 10 rebounds to outduel fellow MVP candidate LeBron James and lead the Rockets to a 117-112 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers. "We beat Golden State. We beat San Antonio, but that was earlier," Rockets coach Mike D'Antoni said. "We haven't had one (recently), so this was good. This will give us a little boost." The Rockets were up by six when Nene made a layup before intercepting a bad pass by James. Patrick Beverley (6'1''-PG-88, college: Arkansas) made a 3-pointer on the other end to push the lead to 116-107 with less than two minutes left. Kyrie Irving (6'3''-G-92, college: Duke) hit a 3 with less than a minute to go and added two free throws after that to get the Cavaliers within four. But then Harden sank a free throw to end Cleveland's run and secure the victory. It was the 16th triple-double this season for Harden and his 31st game with at least 30 points. "It's a big win for us, especially because we're down the stretch and it's time to begin preparing ourselves for postseason," Harden said. "Big win against the defending champs." James had 30 points and Irving scored 28 for the Cavaliers, who lost for the fourth time in five games. Cleveland coach Tyronn Lue thinks James and Irving struggled after the team also played on Saturday night. "We played hard and fought down the stretch and got tired," Lue said. "I thought LeBron got tired and Kyrie got tired. What we took advantage of in the first half, we weren't able to get those things in the second half because our guys got tired." James lamented the fact that Houston got 20 offensive rebounds to just four by the Cavaliers. "They did a good job of crashing the glass," he said. "Obviously, if we got some of those we would have given ourselves a better chance to get the win, but we didn't." Deron Williams gave the Cavaliers a one-point lead on a 3 with about seven minutes left before Houston scored the next seven points, highlighted by Clint Capela (6'10''-F/C-94)'s two-handed dunk on an assist from Harden to make it 107-101. James ended a scoring drought of almost two minutes when he drained a 3-pointer just before the shot clock expired to get Cleveland within three. Lou Williams gave Houston a six-point lead by opening the fourth quarter with a layup. Cleveland then used a 10-2 run, with 3s from James and Channing Frye (6'11''-PF-83, college: Arizona), to go on top 96-94. Cleveland led by 14 with about 10 minutes left in the third quarter after a 3-pointer by James. The Rockets then used an 18-7 run to get to 81-78 with less than four minutes left in the period. Houston had two 3-pointers in that span, one from Harden and one from Ryan Anderson (6'10''-F-88, college: California). Harden and James both added a basket after that before Houston missed six straight shots over the next two possessions. Lou Williams finally got the Rockets going again when he made a 3-pointer that tied it at 83 with about two minutes left in the quarter. The Cavaliers regained the lead with a 3 by Derrick Williams (6'8''-F-91, college: Arizona), but Houston scored the last seven points of the quarter to take a 90-86 lead into the fourth. Harden capped that run by grabbing a steal from Irving and finishing on the other end with a layup. The Cavaliers led 67-58 at halftime.

Adam Silver offers up 1-16 seeding compromise for possible playoff changes - 1 day ago
NBA commissioner Adam Silver floated the possibility of a modified playoff seeding system Saturday that could pit the league's best two teams against each other in the Finals without changing the number of teams from each conference that make the postseason. Because of a recent history of imbalance between the Eastern Conference and Western Conference, there have been some calls to take the best 16 teams per season, regardless of conference. In his annual All-Star Saturday news conference...   [read more]

NBA Dunk Contest 2018: Donovan Mitchell edges Larry Nance, Dennis Smith for title - 1 day ago
Donovan Mitchell (6'3''-G-96, college: Louisville) wasn't supposed to be in the 2018 NBA Slam Dunk Contest. He was the replacement for Aaron Gordon (6'9''-PF-95, college: Arizona) due to injury. The Jazz rookie, however, came prepared to show everybody that he should have been involved in the contest from the start. Everybody knows about his in-game dunk ability, but what about in a contest setting? Mitchell didn't disappoint. He started off with an incredible dunk that he threw off a sec...   [read more]
