Nets run out of fuel against Rockets
James Harden scores 25 in 114-104 loss to former team
Kevin Durant and LaMarcus Aldridge got some much-needed rest Wednesday night in Houston.
James Harden and the rest of the Nets got something entirely different.
Despite 25 points by Harden against his former team, Brooklyn was undermanned and got outclassed throughout a 114-104 loss to the streaking Rockets in front of 15,834 fans at Houston’s Toyota Center.
Less than 24 hours after Tuesday’s come-from-behind win in Dallas, the Nets (17-8) were without Durant, the NBA’s leading scorer, and Aldridge, who has been one of the most productive players off the Brooklyn bench this year.
