NBA | RED HOT
The Houston Rockets continue to prove they are the best team in the NBA, as they defeated the LA Clippers, 105-92, and run away with their 14th consecutive win. Talk about a hot streak! The Clippers trailed the Rockets by 25 points in the first quarter, and never recovered from the deficit.
The real story here was when Rockets point guard, James Harden delivered some serious savagery with this cross over on LA Clippers forward Wesley Jones. NOT ONLY did Harden make Jones fall on his butt, but Harden stares him down, and sinks a 3-pointer. Fans were quick to roast Jones by updating his Wiki Page about his death. R.I.P.
