HOUSTON -- After an uneven start, the Houston Rockets blew the San Antonio Spurs out of the Toyota Center on Sunday night and evened the Western Conference semifinals at 2-2 with a smashing 125-104 Game 4 rout.
James Harden was at his best, scoring 28 points while setting up teammates with 12 assists. Trevor Ariza continued to be a spark with 16 points and 6 boards while Ryan Anderson recovered from a slump to score 13.
Houston also got a huge lift from Eric Gordon and Lou Williams, who contributed 22 and 13, respectively, off the bench.
The Spurs, who got 16 points piece from LaMarcus Aldridge and Kawhi Leonard, hung tough after trailing by as many as 18 in the opening half, but they couldn't keep with the Rockets, who nailed 50 of 95 field goals, including 19 triples.
San Antonio shot 49.4 percent from the field but the 3-point shooting was off, a mere 30.4 percent.
Game 5 is Tuesday night (Wednesday AM in Manila) at the AT&T Center in San Antonio.
