Rockets spoil Nellie's return to the bench


By Frank Hughes, for NBA.com

OAKLAND, Calif. (NBA.com exclusive) -- Don Nelson returned to the Golden State Warriors' bench Thursday night.

But he didn't necessarily look like he was ready to be there.

Nelson, who had missed the previous five games with pneumonia, admitted that he got dizzy a few times -- and it had nothing to do with his team blowing a 10-point lead in the final six minutes of the game to drop a 111-109 decision to the Rockets.

No, Nelson simply did not look as if he was ready to return from his illness; he was lackluster in the team huddles and continually wiped sweat from his brow, as he did earlier in the day at the team's shootaround.

"I survived OK," Nelson said. "I'm a little dizzy right now. Not sure what the reason for that is."

To make matters worse, Nelson had to watch as Aaron Brooks earned a trip to the free throw line with 2.1 seconds remaining to score the game-winning points.

It was ironic, actually, that Brooks got a call that usually is not proffered at that point in an NBA game because Brooks had been sniping with the officials all evening, at one point being assessed a technical foul for yelling at referee Kevin Fehr.

"I was getting bumped," Brooks said.

After he earned the T, Brooks decided to clap in jest whenever the officials made a call against him.

Perhaps it endeared him to the officiating crew. With the game tied at 109, Brooks drove to the right and rose up at the elbow for a jump shot. The ball came up short of the rim and the Warriors celebrated what they thought was a good defensive play. But a second later they were wondering what happened as Brooks made his way to the line, fouled by C.J. Watson.

"I was extremely surprised," Brooks said after scoring a game-high 25. "That was a bold call that he made. I thought it was the right call. C.J. in his heart felt it was the right call. In his heart, deep down, he knew it was the right call."

Brooks made both free throws, Monta Ellis was called for traveling on Golden State's final shot -- one of nine Ellis turnovers -- and the Rockets walked away with their eighth consecutive victory over the Warriors at Oracle Arena.

"We turned it up a notch when we needed to," said Trevor Ariza, who had 18 points.

The Warriors outscored the Rockets 38-25 in the third quarter, the first time this season they have won a third quarter and lost the game.

At least a part of the Rockets comeback can be attributed to a coaching decision by Nelson. When the Warriors were dominating, they were running the floor and getting a good game from forward Vladimir Radmanovic, who had a season-high 20 points on 8-for-13 shooting, and Anthony Morrow, who had 21.

But in the fourth quarter, Nelson went away from Radmanovic and chose a small lineup, with 6-foot-6 Corey Maggette playing center against 6-9 Carl Landry.

The Rockets kept feeding the ball in the post to Landry, who continued to make strong moves that reaped baskets or fouls.

Nelson said he thought Maggette could guard Landry and the mismatch on the offensive end would tilt in the Warriors' favor.

Instead, it was the catalyst for Houston's comeback, in which they outscored Golden State 18-6 in the final half of the fourth quarter.

"Against a team like this, you have to keep in your mind that they are going to make shots, but you can't give up on the effort," said Rockets coach Rick Adelman, whose team defeated the Clippers on Wednesday night. "We knew that they were going to let us back into the game. We just had to stay patient."

These teams met in the season opener, when the absence of Yao Ming and Tracy McGrady prompted many to wonder if the Rockets would manage 20 wins.

But they won that night and have gone on to win 10 others, with Adelman once again proving his merit as a coach who can devise more than the offensive back picks for which he became known in Sacramento.

Nelson, meanwhile, did not appear to do a great deal of coaching in the huddle. Keith Smart, who took over during Nelson's five-game absence, did most of the talking to the players, while Nelson leaned in and listened, occasionally offering words of encouragement.

He said he plans on coaching in Saturday's home game against the Orlando Magic before deciding if he will accompany the Warriors on a five-game trip that begins Dec. 6.

NOTE: The game was briefly interrupted late in the third quarter when a fan traipsed onto the court and ran down the middle of the floor before authorities escorted him from the building. He never posed a threat to any players.
