The Golden State Warriors were bested in their most entertaining game of the season, finally losing their grip, 132-127 to the Houston Rockets after 58 minutes of wild, record-breaking NBA basketball.
If early errors did not doom the Warriors, they certainly came back to haunt them late in regulation and in overtime. In the end, Kevin Durant’s consistent greatness (39 points on 28 shots, 13 rebounds) wasn’t enough to save his teammates against a Rockets squad that fought hard through the end.
