Green was incredible again on Thursday vs. the Warriors, racking up 29 points and eight 3-pointers with three rebounds and one steal in 34 minutes.
In regards to the new-look Rockets, a few decisions stood out. Guys like Bobby Brown, Zhou Qi, Demetrius Jackson and Troy Williams barely get any playing time, and with Luc Mbah a Moute sidelined with a shoulder injury until mid-January, D'Antoni was essentially down to an eight-man rotation.
Houston played their second straight game without National Basketball Association leading scorer James Harden, who is out for at least a fortnight with a hamstring injury.
Reigning NBA Most Valuable Player Westbrook scored 29 points, pulled down 12 rebounds and handed out 11 assists for the Thunder, who notched their second win in as many nights in Los Angeles after a 133-96 rout of the Lakers on Wednesday.
Klay Thompson added 28 points for the Warriors, who trailed by a point at half-time.Читайте также: Turkey says Syrian regime strikes in Idlib undermine political process
"As much as he talks about it, yeah it's hard not to", Curry said. Chris Paul: These two have been going at it for years, so nothing changes with Paul moving from the Clippers to the Rockets. "So to see how fast he has gotten to that level, the way he has raised his level of play, is pretty impressive". The Warriors improved to 21-0 in Green's career when he records a triple-double.
Thursday, like opening night, will go a short way in determining how these two juggernaut offenses will match up in a potential playoff series.
While Green's defense leaves a lot to be desired, he is a natural scorer and above-average 3-point shooter, making his fit with the Rockets almost seamless. Hopefully, both Harden and Durant will be healthy when the teams face each other again in Oakland on January 20. Then, some are open that he misses. It's impossible to get a true sense of how these squads matchup without two of the premier scorers in the game. Harden was at the top of a lot of analysts MVP ballots before the injury, but the Rockets will be without him for at least a couple of weeks due to this injury.
National Basketball Association scoring leader James Harden tallied 40 points and 11 assists before leaving with an injury in the fourth quarter as the Rockets went on to snap a five-game losing streak.
All in all, Green is averaging 16.8 points per game with the Rockets, hitting 56.8 percent of his shots beyond the arc.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
