The Warriors led 73-53 early in the third quarter, but ultimately lost 135-134 in overtime at Oracle Arena to a Rockets team once again boosted by a lights-out display from James Harden.

After winning the MVP past year, Harden is making a pretty strong case for a second one.

That final three to win the game in overtime was wild because he was well-defended by two players and still made it.

To his credit, Durant basically said he knew he was out of bounds. He released the ball with at least four hands in his face for the game-winner, a shot that Golden State coach Steve Kerr described as "impossible" after the game. Harden, however, had one more improbable, acrobatic moment still in him. He notched his second triple-double of the week and fifth consecutive 40-point game, but the impressive stats themselves don't tell the whole story.

An exasperated Stephen Curry acknowledged that the Warriors threw away a victory Thursday by coughing up a 20-point lead against the Rockets. "I just had to go out and do my part on the highest level".

"The work. Yesterday I was in that same spot shooting the same shots", Harden said. Harden is putting up 39.7 points during this 11-game stretch, while dishing out 8.5 assists.
