Clint Capela returned from a 15-game absence; Chris Paul came an assist shy of a triple-double; James Harden scored his 30; Eric Gordon even started, too. It didn’t matter. Houston lost a nationally-televised game in Los Angeles to the Lakers, 111–106.
LeBron James had 29; Brandon Ingram scored 27; and the newest Laker, Reggie Bullock, scored 14 as a starter to help the Lakers start the final third with a comeback win. Los Angeles outscored Houston by a dozen in the final quarter to get to .500.
The road does get easier for Houston after this game, with home games against Atlanta and Miami with a roadie at Charlotte in-between.
But the Rockets could be back behind the Spurs in the Southwest Division by that time. I missed my chance to take the Spurs at +750 a couple of months ago when it looked like they would actually win that division. For a while, I was relieved but now it looks like I may have really missed out.
San Antonio is almost done with a long road trip and is about to get Derrick White back. If it finishes ahead of Houston that would make Golden State, Denver, Oklahoma City, the Spurs, and likely Portland. Utah is there and the Kings are playing hard.
It’s hard to know where the Rockets will end up right now.
Golden State Warriors
The Warriors yawned, stretched, looked up at the rising sun and started their final third, stretch run with a two-point win over the Kings on Thursday night.
Steph had 36; Durant had 28; and Boogie Cousins and Klay Thompson combined for 35. Draymond Green had a team-high eight assists and scored a dozen, too.
Marvin Bagley led the Kings with 28 points and 13 rebounds. Sacramento had a two-point lead going into the fourth quarter but couldn’t quite hold on. It wasn’t the first time these two teams have played a tight game this season.
The Warriors had won each of the previous three matchups with the Kings this season but by a combined nine points. That makes four wins over Sacramento by 11 points this season.
What’s more compelling is that this could be a 1/8 matchup in the first round of the Western Conference Playoffs. The Kings have to hold off the Lakers and catch the Clippers in the final 24 games.
