Kobe scores 40 to bring Lakers over Blazers

In front of a sold-out crowd at the Barclays, the Brooklyn Nets rallied from 15 back to bring it to a 97-94 deficit with 2:57 to go, and then James Harden and the Houston Rockets dropped the hammer and went on to win 106-96 last night! The Nets three-game winning streak came to an end! Harden scored 15 of his 22 in the second half, Carlos Delfino hit clutch buckets (22 points) in the final minutes, and the Rockets held on despite the Brooklyn fight! Brook Lopez was dominate, looked like an All-Star, and finished with 27 points, while the usual go to Joe Johnson was sidelined with a minor foot injury! Nets’ D-Will finished with 15 points and 13 assists, Mirza Teletovic hit the clutch three late (to bring the Nets close) and finished with 12 points off the bench, and C.J. Watson finished with 17 points! Ex-Knick now Rocket Jeremy Lin finished with nine points and six assists! Check out highlights from the game on video below!
