James Harden’s 26 points and nine assists led the Houston Rockets to a 122-103 road win over the Los Angeles on Wednesday night, as the Clippers struggled to contain the Rockets’ high-octane offense.
Houston made 20 three-pointers en-route to the victory, and Harden was the chief orchestrator behind the shots from distance. Harden himself hit four threes.
The Clippers’ post All-Star Break struggles continued in the defeat, as they looked as listless as we’ve seen all season. With the playoff race in the West hotly contested, Los Angeles will look to rectify things before they begin to spiral down the standings.
