James Harden scored 27 points and the Houston Rockets routed the Golden State Warriors 107-86 on Thursday night in a rematch of last season's Western Conference finals.
Nick Friedell ESPN Staff Writer
This is the worst game the Warriors have played all season up to this point. They trail 76-63 after three quarters — but the bigger key is the offense looks lifeless. The Warriors are just 2-for-12 from beyond the arc and have just 12 assists after 36 minutes. Hard to tell how much of an impact the emotions of the past few days have taken on this team in the wake of the Kevin Durant/Draymond Green incident — but they could sure use Stephen Curry to stabilize the offense right now. Curry remains out for at least another week and a half as he covers from a strained left groin.
