The Rockets (23-17) had entered their difficult stretch back in December, having lost seven of nine games, but they turned their season around behind the stellar play of James Harden to win 12 of 15. They claimed seven of those victories without guard Chris Paul (hamstring) while contesting the last five games with guard Eric Gordon (knee) also sidelined. That combination of debilitating injuries and stiff competition -- with Houston facing the likes of Portland, San Antonio, Oklahoma City, Boston, Denver and Milwaukee -- made for a harrowing challenge.
The Scoop: None.
