Harden, Rockets rout Spurs 125-104 to tie series

Anderson forced San Antonio to have a big on the perimeter, opening the lane for drives from Houston's guards.

This series likely now diverges even more in style.

Game 5 is Tuesday night in San Antonio with the series tied 2-2.

A question was posed to Mike D'Antoni on Sunday after yet another blowout between his Rockets and the Spurs. The Cleveland Cavaliers are attempting more than three additional pull-up 3s per game, with a marginal improvement in percentage; the Golden State Warriors, meanwhile, have made a tiny increase in attempts but a massive improvement in accuracy. But based on how lopsided the outcomes have been through the first four games of each series, do you have any hope?

The Rockets have gotten back in the series after dropping games 2 and 3.

The Rockets are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 Conference Semifinals games, 4-12 ATS in their last 16 games playing on 1 days rest and 5-13 ATS in their last 18 games overall. Pairing Harrell at the five, with James Harden, Eric Gordon, Trevor Ariza and Ryan Anderson has resulted in a staggering +20.0 point differential in just under 175 minutes together.

The starters have largely been on the bench and the fans on the way to their cars by late in the fourth quarter.

Well, kinda. He's so much better at the podium when he's upset, and his San Antonio Spurs gave him plenty to be upset about Sunday night.

It might cost Centrica something like £200m and make it much tougher for the firm to reintroduce its progressive dividend policy. Mr Clark said that the Competition and Markets Authority had found that the market was not sufficient competitive.

"I mean, it's insane".

The Rockets were 22 of 38 inside the restricted area in Games 2 and 3 when Gasol was on the floor according to the stats provided by the National Basketball Association media site, which is not good. "It's all about tempo". This is obviously the game you need.

Seriously, can you recall an NBA Playoffs that have been so barren of drama and bereft of any real buzz through the first two rounds like we're experiencing this year? "I think now we have kind of really figured out what needs to happen and what we need to do to win".

The third-seeded Rockets stole home court from the second-seeded Spurs with a 126-99 win in Game 1 in San Antonio on May 1.

The Spurs bounced back fine after getting clobbered in the opener and will try to do so again following Houston's 125-104 victory on Sunday. Last night, he carried the Spurs for a short stint when the game was still within reach, the same way he hit massive buckets in game three to hold the Rockets at bay. Tip-off is set for 8 p.m. ET.

NEED TO KNOW: Simple stuff so far. The 15-year veteran averaged 9.1 points and 4.2 rebounds in the regular season. They averaged just 11.5 3s in the two losses, shooting 31.5 percent. When all it takes for the ball to land in Anderson's pocket is Green turning a mere eyelid toward Harden, the defense is forced to scramble as quickly as fast as his eyes move - an impossible proposition.

"I just tried to play with pace", said Harden, who scored 43 points in Game Three. "Offensively, we've just got to get guys involved", star point guard James Harden told reporters.

Washington Wizards and Houston Rockets powered to vital Game 4 victories on their home courts, levelling their semi-finals series against Boston Celtics and San Antonio Spurs respectively.
