Defense and James Harden: that’s how Houston was able to beat the Spurs, 101-99, on Nov. 9. The 27-year-old had a triple-double, scoring 24 points, 15 assists and 12 rebounds. This was the first triple-double in Rockets franchise history, according to ESPN, but it wasn’t the offense that won the night.
With the teams neck and neck in the final minute, James fired off a bad shot that landed in the Spurs hand. However, when San Antonio tried to recover, Trevor Ariza’s, 31, defensive skills kept the Rockets in the lead long enough to secure the win.
“It’s important for us and for our team, the only way we’re going to get to where we want to go it’s on the defensive end,” James said after the game. “The game wasn’t pretty at all, defensively we got stops on a string and we get wins on the defensive end the wins are going to come.”
San Antonio has now lost three consecutive home games, which would be unthinkable a year ago. “This is probably our best win,” Rockets coach Mike D’Antoni, 65, said. “Any time you beat a team like this on the road, it’s a signature win. But we have a long way to go.”
Actually, they only had 200 miles to go, as it’s only a three-and-a-half-hour drive from San Antonio to Houston (depending on traffic.) With revenge in their minds, the Spurs looks to return the favor by handing Houston a loss at home. Will this rematch end in San Antonio’s favor or will the Rockets beat the Spurs for the second time this week?
