Green kicks Harden in the face, earns Flagrant 1

By the second overtime, the Rockets needed just two baskets, a James Harden 3-pointer and a tough left-handed drive by Eric Gordon, to begin to pull away.

If early errors did not doom the Warriors, they certainly came back to haunt them late in regulation and in overtime.

Harden registered yet another triple-double, notching 29 points, 15 rebounds and 13 assists in Thursday's win. It was a close fight for the Golden State Warriors the whole game but the team managed to make defensive stops and eventually secure the win. "I really don't care", Green said.

Golden State's Stephen Curry fouled out with 3:25 left in the last extra session when he was whistled for a charge.

"Just missed shots", Durant said. The referees reviewed the play, but the foul stood. But I still think it is a hard place to play because, for no doubt, the trip (to Denver) is sneaky long. I followed through on a shot.

In this game, the Warriors found their rhythm, but briefly, between interruptions.

Neither team was efficient from distance, however, as the Warriors (16-3) made just 12 of their attempts (27.3 percent) and the Rockets made 14 (31.8 percent). That "death lineup" of Green at center sparked a run that snagged the lead, albeit briefly.

It would take something pretty spectacular for the 28-year-old to leave the Bay Area, but one city he does have a strong connection to is his hometown, Charlotte. Since Kevin Durant is playing for the warriors, let's see if they can handle this team.

Kevin Durant is delighted to have an individual level. Though prone to risky passes, he was less risky with a few entry tries than careless. The Nuggets hope a late game in Golden State will do that, too.

As it happened, the Warriors trailed by three points and had possession of the ball. They gave up 34 points on 35 turnovers in recent wins over the Lakers and Timberwolves.

Draymond Green had season highs of 20 points and 15 rebounds.

Fourth in the league in scoring and first in the league in assists? "Obviously, we built this team to put shooters around James", Anderson said recently of Harden, who leads the National Basketball Association with 11.9 assists per game.

After losing Curry, what followed were dragging possessions that came up empty for a team that appeared worn out.

That play proved costly because - due to accumulation of flagrant fouls throughout the playoffs - Green was suspended for Game 5, which the Warriors dropped at home en route to squandering a three-games-to-one lead and losing the series. Maybe I'll go read the rule book, maybe I'm wrong. If I'm not mistaken, I'm right.

Perhaps last season, the kick's contact would have been chalked up to the accidental. The Rockets took a 73-63 halftime lead over the Nuggets, who allowed a season high in points by an opponent over the first two quarters. But there's no question that Draymond is going to be that focus of the role because we're always the focus, we're playing on national TV, it was a huge storyline in the playoffs a year ago.

Milwaukee find themselves on a three-game winning streak and are 9-8 having been largely unfancied at the start of the season.
