The Houston Rockets took on the Cleveland Cavaliers tonight and at times, it felt like a boring game because James Harden and company were blowing them out. But the Cavs would come back and make it interesting thanks to the effort of Jeff Green and Lebron James. Cleveland had plenty of chances to win this game, but unfortunate plays cost them the game.
The Beard on the other hand, was balling. He finished with 35 points, 11 rebounds and 13 assists on the night, getting help from the likes of Eric Gordon (20 points) and Clint Capela (who scored all of the Rockets final points and had a monster block on King James at the end of regulation).
LeBron balled out, like always, scoring 33 points and dishing out 7 assists. Green also contributed with 27 points and 5 rebounds off the bench.
He was out here making plays like this:
Cleveland is now 5-7 for the season, dropping in the Eastern Conference standings again to 11th. Houston improves to 9-3, tied with the best record in the Western Conference.
