Highlights: Rockets come back to beat T-Wolves
Down 18 at the half and down 20 at one point in the third quarter, the Rockets made a stirring comeback in the second half to win 108-100.
James Harden scored 37 points with seven rebounds and eight assists. Jeremy Lin was on point as well, with 24 points, eight assists, and four steals.
The story of the game, though, was the difference in intensity from one half to the next. Obviously, the second half was MUCH better.
The Rockets were down 59-39 early in the second half. From that point on, they flipped the switch and outscored the T-Wolves 69-41 the rest of the way. Switch flipped equals turning point.
FROM THE FIELD
The Rockets finished the game 36-74 from the field for 48.6 percent. From distance, they were 11-31 (3.5 percent).
AT THE LINE
The Rockets were solid at the stripe on Friday night, shooting 25-31 for 80.6 percent.
Lin fed Omer Asik for a dunk early to tie it up 14-14. Lin had a pretty incredible over-the-shoulder lay-up to close the third quarter. Harden fed Chandler Parsons for an early fourth-quarter dunk.
Greg Smith did his normal thing, throwing in a couple of dunks down the stretch.
The Rockets try to continue their run of success of Golden State on Sunday. On the flipside, the Warriors will try to get off the shnide as the Rockets have beaten them in all three previous meetings this season.
