It was Houston who pulled off the upset in San Antonio 101-99.
San Antonio Spurs
Playing in their 2nd leg of a back to back, the Spurs finally got back on track after losing 3 straight home games, something this team wasn’t ready to do.
After trailing at halftime to the Pistons, the Spurs said enough was enough and turned it up a notch as they eventually went on to secure a 10 point win.
C Pau Gasol had his best game as a Spurs member, as he put up 21 points and grabbed 9 rebounds while dishing out 6 assists.
It was the Spurs big men who really made the difference in the win over Detroit, which is something they didn’t do against Houston when they faced them just a few days ago.
Leonard finished with 17 points, while LaMarcus Aldridge had 14.
Expect the Spurs to play a little differently here against Houston this time around, as they’ll have Tony Parker back running the point.
Parker finished with 7 points and 4 assists in his first game back after missing 3 straight.
The Rockets had the benefit of a few days off after taking out the Spurs 101-99.
Houston stood tall defensively in the 2nd half, as they allowed just 39 points against a very impressive Spurs offense.
By no surprise, it was James Harden who once again led the way for the Rockets. Harden finished with 24 points, 12 rebounds, and 15 assists as he continues to put up extremely impressive numbers in the early going.
Harden did have 8 turnovers in the win, which is something he has to cut down on going forward.
Harden got a lot of help from the supporting cast, which has been a rare feat this season.
Ryan Anderson put in 20, while Eric Gordon added 15. The Rockets had 5 total players in double figures in the win.
Expect them to need that and even more here in this one, as the Spurs found their rhythm in the 2nd half of the win over Detroit. Expect them to have to clamp down defensively inside, as Gasol and Aldridge are going to be a handful.
