After the game, Harden fired off one of the season's best quotes, telling reporters he "felt like Usain Bolt" as he made his mad dash to the rim.
James Harden nailed a last-gasp layup with less than 3 seconds on the clock as the Houston Rockets snatched a 125-124 victory over the Denver Nuggets in Texas on Monday, March 20 (Tuesday in Manila). Houston outlasted Denver in a duel between the second- and third-highest scoring teams in the National Basketball Association.
The Nuggets had one more shot with 2.4 seconds left.
The Rockets now have a strong grip on the third seed in the Western Conference behind only the Golden State Warriors and San Antonio Spurs. "We played really well down the stretch and gave ourselves a chance to win, but we just couldn't pull it out". "We just didn't convert it". He hit a 3-pointer to pull the Nuggets within two points with less than a minute left.
Harden's basket with two seconds remaining forced Denver to call a timeout.
Harden took the ball down the court and scored on a finger-roll layup. Nikola Jokic also gave Houston problems with his size on both ends of the floor.
Jokic scored 22 points to go with 13 rebounds and 8 assists.
The Rockets finished the game 17 for 38 from 3 (44.7 percent). With Harden and Patrick Beverley leading the way, the Rockets shot 55% from 3-point land during the third and fourth quarters, scoring 32 and 31 points respectively. Gallinari (knee) and Chandler (groin) are both day-to-day. Saturday's setback snapped a four-game winning streak for Denver, which plays nine of its final 13 games on the road beginning with Monday's tilt.
Forward Darrell Arthur (left knee soreness) did not travel with the team to Houston, and Malone did not have a timetable for his return. Center Clint Capela went up against the big Denver front line on Saturday and came away with 16 points and eight rebounds to help the Rockets build up a 60-48 advantage on points in the paint.
