In this episode, Sam Vecenie and Jared Weiss chat about the terrific Celtics-Rockets game on Saturday night. Gordon got hot for Houston, hitting two 3-pointers in less than 30 seconds to power a 6-2 run that got Houston to 103-102 with about eight minutes remaining. With 2.8 seconds left, Irving missed on objective again, but he didn't hit the rim to turn the ball over.
And with some more misses - including some gut-wrenching Kyrie Irving free throw intentional miss attempts that went awry (one went in and the other was whistled for not touching the rim) - it all compounded into one rough ending for the Celtics.
Houston's Gordon made one of two free throws to make it 123-120 with 2.3 seconds remaining.
Harden said that their attention to defense was the difference maker. "In the first half it was a little too easy for them ... and the reason why we won was fourth-quarter defense". Those numbers will be put to the test Saturday night as the Celtics travel to Houston to face a Rockets team that is riding a 14-game winning streak.
