Rockets' Capela is getting 'energy' from James Harden's scoring

Houston have now won six games in a row and 11 of their last 12 after trumping Golden State on the road.

The regulation period was not sufficient and the Rockets eventually walked out of Oracle with a 135-134 exciting win.

"But since James has been here we've been buyers at the deadline and hopefully something comes along that we think can help our chances to win the title". DeRozan got his first career triple-double, stuffing the stat sheet with 21 points, 14 rebounds, 11 assists and 2 steals.

Raptors guard Danny Green went 0 for 7 from the field and 0 of 6 from 3-point range in the Raptors' loss to the Spurs.

Harden finished the game with another triple-double of 44 points, 15 assists, 10 rebounds and 2 blocks. Murray put up 17 points in the fourth quarter, finishing the game with 36 points, 7 rebounds and 6 assists. LaMarcus Aldridge scored 23 points for San Antonio, Bryn Forbes added 20, Derrick White 19 and Rudy Gay 13. Clint Capela, who just signed a massive extension in the summer, came up big with 29 points and 21 rebounds.

Houston also overcame a 20-point second-half deficit to come away with the victory. While some fans may have an issue with how Harden racks up his insane point totals by consistently getting to the free-throw line, there is no doubt that he is one of the best scorers in the National Basketball Association.
