LeBron Misses Two Big Free Throws in OT, Rockets Beat Cavs 105-103

LeBron Misses Two Big Free Throws in OT, Rockets Beat Cavs 105-103

Ronald Martinez/Getty Images(HOUSTON) -- LeBron James missed two free throws with under five seconds remaining in overtime and James Harden missed his second one on purpose in the Rockets 105-103 win over Cleveland on Sunday.

Harden led the way with for Houston with 33 points, eight rebounds, and five assists.

"That's a very good team over there," Harden told ABC after the game.  "We were battling through injuries all season.  We wanted to come out here and prove that we were a good team."

James, who finished with 37 points in the loss, could have given the Cavaliers the lead, but missed both free throws.

"There is no excuse. I missed free throws," James said. "I missed the two biggest ones of the game to put us up with seconds on the clock and I didn't come through. I failed my teammates."

The game featured some shoving from both sides and players scrambling on the court for loose balls, but James said that he wasn't bothered by it.

"It was old-school basketball," James said. "When you have two teams with the same aspirations and trying to get better every day, it can get like that."

Kevin Garnett Ejected After Headbutting Dwight Howard

Kevin Garnett Ejected After Headbutting Dwight Howard

Elsa/Getty Images(BROOKLYN, N.Y.) -- Kevin Garnett and Dwight Howard were battling for position under the basket in the first quarter Monday night -- perhaps are little too hard -- and Garnett ended up getting ejected for being literally hard-headed.

Garnett took exception to Howard's pushing and shoving and bounced the ball off of the Rocket's center's head. With just under eight minutes to go in the first quarter, the two began to exchange words and Garnett took the crown of his head to Howard's jaw.

The NBA league office will review the incident and hand down any disciplinary action if it is deemed necessary.

Back to the action on the court: James Harden lit up the Nets defense as he put up 30 points. Howard would add eight points and five rebounds.

Houston would go on to win the game 113-99.

Report: Rockets Acquire Corey Brewer

Report: Rockets Acquire Corey Brewer

National Basketball Association(HOUSTON, Tx.) -- The Houston Rockets are adding some much needed depth to their bench.

Corey Brewer has been traded to the Houston Rockets from the Minnesota Timberwolves, Friday, according to Yahoo Sports.

 The Timberwolves will receive guard Troy Daniels as well as two second round draft picks - one via Sacramento.

Houston is currently 18th in scoring offense in the NBA, averaging 99.8 points per game.  Their bench is also last in the NBA with 21.4 points per game.

Brewer will likely improve those numbers as he is averaging 10.5 points per game this season and shooting 41.8% from the field.

Dwight Howard Back on the Court for the Rockets

Dwight Howard Back on the Court for the Rockets

Bob Levey/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- After an 11 game absence, Houston Rockets center Dwight Howard will make his return to the court Saturday night against the Denver Nuggets.

Howard was out of action after dealing with knee soreness. While the injury wasn't considered too serious, the team felt it was best to hold him out until he felt healthy enough to play at his All-Star level.

He underwent platelet-rich plasma therapy to help restore the cartilage in his knee, and is feeling like his old self again.

"I'm just thankful to be back out there," Howard said. "Nobody wants to sit on the bench in a suit and watch his team play. You want to get out there in the action. But I'm happy to be back out there, thankful. I thank God for just allowing me to be able to play again. I'm just happy to play again. That's the big thing."

The Rockets haven't missed a beat without Howard. The team sits at 17-5 heading into Saturday, which is the third-best record in the NBA.

The 29-year-old Howard is averaging 18.8 points and 11.3 rebounds per game.

Lakers Win Consecutive Games for First Time This Year

Lakers Win Consecutive Games for First Time This Year

Chris Graythen/Getty Images(HOUSTON) -- For the first time in the 2014-15 season, the Los Angeles Lakers won consecutive games with a 98-92 win over the Houston Rockets on Wednesday night. Kobe Bryant led the way with 29 points, seven assists, and five rebounds for the Lakers (3-9).

"Look, we had a bad start," Bryant said. "Are we a 3-9 team? No. We're a much better team than that. We got off to a really bad start, but we'll (get better)."

Trailing by four with less than a minute to play, Los Angeles used a 7-1 run to take a 94-92 lead and pick up the victory. Nick Young scored 16 points in just his second game of the season, scoring 17 in Tuesday night's win. Young added a pair of free throws late to seal the win.

The Rockets (9-3) were playing without center Dwight Howard who missed the game with a knee injury. James Harden paced Houston with 24 points while three other players scored in double figures. Despite shooting 15-of-38 from beyond the arc, the Rockets turned the ball over 17 times and were out-rebounded 47-38 in the loss.

It was the first meeting between the Western Conference foes after Houston's opening night win in Los Angeles. That contest featured a small spat between Howard and Bryant, heightening the drama going into Wednesday's game.
