HOUSTON - The Rockets made a statement in game 2.
With most of the country writing its obituary, the team with the NBA’s best record emphatically defended its home court, evening up the Western Conference Finals with a decisive 127-105 win over Golden State.
The Rockets came out swinging and never gave the Warriors a chance to take back the momentum.
James Harden had 27 points, as did Eric Gordon, who was on fire from the start.
Still, the Warriors did what they had to do. They took a game in Houston, and now the Rockets cannot win the series without winning in Oakland. But if the Rockets play like they did in game 2, it won't matter where they're playing.
Game 3 is Sunday night.
