EASY WIN NEEDED

Faux Warriors crushed by Harden, Rockets in Houston

The Rockets haven't been able to shoot straight. The Rockets haven't been able to defend. So it was a welcome sight to see the Golden State Warriors in town -- at least, the current version of the Golden State Warriors.

James Harden scored 36 points and handed out 13 assists as the Rockets used a big run that connected the second and third quarters to crush the faux Warriors -- a team missing every star player it employs.

The Rockets were sparked by some sharpshooting for a change as they hit 21-44 from long range. PJ Tucker (22 points) and Danuel House Jr. combined to hit 9-14 from distance. Russell Westbrook finished with 18 points, eight rebounds and six assists and Austin Rivers was a perfect 4-4 from long range off the bench, scoring 12 points.
