Harden, Rockets rout Spurs 125-104 to tie series

For once, Gregg Popovich was in a mood to talk.

Although San Antonio would potentially have two of the final three games on its home floor, Spurs venerable guard Manu Ginobili said the team needed to treat Tuesday's contest like it was a Game 7, not a Game 5. "But the whole goal was to get stops".

Pop has until Tuesday night to figure out his next adjustment in a unusual series that's been one non-competitive blowout after another.

The Rockets evened up the series on Sunday with a 125-104 win over the Spurs in Houston.

Houston led by as many as 15 in the first half and was up 57-53 at halftime. "Their attack in transition killed us".

"When LeBron is shooting the 3 ball the way he is, at the rate he's shooting it, they're hard", Toronto coach Dwane Casey said. "And we were not". I see that the Rockets shot well beyond the arc (44.2%) in Game 4. The San Antonio Spurs have won 10 of their last 14 home games. If indeed Harrell does get some time now, history tells us he will shake rust off quickly, as many times this season, he would go from DNP-CD one game to material contributions the next game.

The Rockets have gotten back in the series after dropping games 2 and 3.

To win tonight, James Harden and the gang will have to push the pace.

Beverley had a long and emotional night, breaking down in tears in the locker room and during pre-game warmups after learning just before tip-off that his grandfather had passed away.

Critical, in other words. The camera stays trained on them until the embarrassment factor shames them into donning the free giveaway shirts.

Spurs would go onto win National Basketball Association championship. "They are going to play with that lineup a lot anyway. Whoever it is, we've got to try to fill that role". "And they make you pay". I saw some talk about how the Spurs only had two more rebounds than Houston despite the Rockets smaller lineup.

With my above postulations and overwhelming evidences, I have just one question for you: Are you still one of his enemies? Cristiano Ronaldo , Varane and Keylor will stay at Madrid while some important players like Marcelo , Modric and Benzema .

The Houston Rockets said Nene was out for the rest of the season Monday, one day after the veteran backup center tore a muscle in his left thigh.

To the credit of head coach Mike D'Antoni, it's a strategy that's far easier to describe than defend, but the Spurs must look to replicate their Game 2 success on Harden.

The injury leaves Houston short on big men to contend with San Antonio's combination of 6-11 LaMarcus Aldridge and 7-footer Pau Gasol.

The All-Star still finished with 22 points and 15 rebounds.

Houston made 22 3-pointers in a blowout win in Game 1, but had struggled from long-range in its two losses.

It's San Antonio's turn to be the aggressor. A chance for Harden to redeem himself, and the ball didn't even get a chance to be judged by the rim. Cleveland weep, going 8-0 in the playoffs for the second straight season as LeBron toys with shooting left-handed - not usually his thing.

Anyways, you want to see some friggin' highlights! "They're playing with an edge every game and they're sweeping everybody". The foursome combined for 54 points and helped keep the Spurs on the ropes for most of the night.

The Spurs would settle for surviving.

"Houston made a few adjustments that we just couldn't cope with them on the fly", Mills said.

"I've done it throughout my career", Anderson said. "If I do, I don't know them".
