Notebook: Rockets 130, Nuggets 125 (OT)


Matt Miller, for NBA.com
Posted Sun Apr 06, 2014 11:24 PM - Updated Sun Apr 06, 2014 11:24 PM

THE FACT: The Denver Nuggets played their 13th overtime game against the Houston Rockets in franchise history on Sunday, the most overtime contests Denver has competed in against any NBA team.

THE LEAD: James Harden scored 15 of his game-high 32 points in the fourth quarter and overtime and dished out 10 assists to lead seven Rockets in double figures, as Houston overcame a 14-point, fourth-quarter deficit to stun the Nuggets 130-125 at Toyota Center. Omer Asik scored a season-high 18 points and matched his career high with 23 rebounds, while Isaiah Canaan pitched in a career-best 15 points off the bench for the Rockets (51-25), who have won seven of 10 games overall and 13 of 14 at home.

Ex-Rocket Aaron Brooks burned his former team for 24 points, 15 assists and eight rebounds, but he committed four of his seven turnovers in the closing minutes as Denver unraveled. Reserve guard Evan Fournier added 26 points on 9-for-16 shooting for the Nuggets (33-44), losers of six consecutive road games for the first time since Dec. 8-28, 2009.

QUOTABLE: "[We played great] the last four minutes and in the five minutes of overtime and then a helluva second quarter, but other than that, we were flat. ... Omer and James ? without those two, we'd get blown out of the place."
-- Houston coach Kevin McHale

THE STAT: The Rockets improved to 13-0 all-time when Harden scores at least 20 points and hands out at least 10 assists.

TURNING POINT: Both teams squandered double-digit leads, as Denver overcame a 17-point halftime deficit and led by as many as 14 in the fourth quarter before suffering a late-game collapse. The Nuggets committed five turnovers in the final 3:55 of regulation, opening the door for Houston to tie the game when Harden buried a 3-pointer from the top of the key with seven seconds remaining. The Rockets rode the wave of momentum into overtime, scoring on five of their first six possessions of the extra session to build a 130-122 advantage.

QUOTABLE II: "We shouldn't have even put ourselves in that situation. ... We were in mud. We were slow. They got every loose ball. They got every rebound. They passed the ball and got open 3s. They played the way we needed to play in order to win the game, and the last four minutes [of regulation], we played how we should have played in that third quarter."
-- Harden

HOT: Asik has been a dominant force on the glass since stepping into the starting lineup for the injured Dwight Howard. After grabbing 23 rebounds Sunday, Asik has averaged 16.8 boards while starting the last five games.

NOT: Harden, who had shot 45.0 percent from 3-point range over his previous 10 games, shot 3-for-10 (30.0 percent) from beyond the arc.

GOOD MOVE: The Rockets saved their best basketball for the end of the first half and regulation. Houston not only ended the second quarter on a 24-8 run, but also erased a late double-digit deficit by closing the fourth on a 19-5 spurt.

BAD MOVE: Brooks' miscues down the stretch stands out above all else, but Nuggets guard Randy Foye missed a critical free-throw attempt that would have given Denver a two-possession lead with 10.7 seconds left in regulation.

QUOTABLE III: "I don't think I've seen something quite like that. ... We started to play not to lose. We got on our heels, and we let their pressure affect us, and we started throwing the ball all over the place and turning it over."
-- Nuggets coach Brian Shaw

NOTABLE: Denver played without starting point guard Ty Lawson, who suffered a left ankle sprain during Friday's loss at Memphis. "[The plan is] just to rehab his ankle and get him as healthy as possible," Shaw said. "If he can come back, and he feels strong enough to come back to where it's not going to do any further damage, I want him to come back. But if he can't, it's really not a big deal." ... The Rockets were without starters Howard and Patrick Beverley for the fifth game in a row. Neither player has a timetable for his respective return to action. ... This was Brooks' first game in Houston since the Rockets traded the 6-foot-0 point guard to the Nuggets on Feb. 20. ... Houston has won 20 consecutive games against teams that entered the matchup with a losing record. ... The Rockets scored a franchise-record 47 points in the second quarter. ... Denver's 34 second-chance points are the most any opponent has scored against the Rockets this season. ... Houston is averaging 21.8 fast-break points over its last 23 games.
