James Harden led the Rockets with a 21-11-11 triple-double, the first of his career. Omer Asik and Chandler Parsons had terrific games as well. Ramon Sessions and Jeffery Taylor had strong games in their own right for the Bobcats.
Despite falling behind early, the Bobcats came back to lead early in the fourth. Then it was all downhill from there as Michael Kidd-Gilchrist suffered his head injury and the momentum completely shifted in Houston's favor leading to their ultimate double-digit win.
