Nets Hand Rockets 13th Straight Loss
The Beard returns to Houston amid the boos of over 3000 disgruntles Rockets fans, as the Brooklyn Nets defeated the Houston Rockets 132-114.
Harden put up another triple double with 29 points, 10 boards and 14 assists, and Brooklyn set a franchise record with their seventh straight road victory.
There have been many returns from past stars to their former teams, and sometimes there will be cheers of admiration and appreciation for what those players have done.
Some fans cheered when Harden’s name was announced, but the mood was anything but cheerful last night, and it has been 20 years since the Rockets have had this many consecutive losses. (13 straight)
Harden was quoted after the game on NBA dot com saying "As far as playing in Houston, a lot of mixed emotions for the fans, but I knew that was going to happen, I just wanted to come out here and give them a show."
The Brooklyn Nets are currently the seconds best team in the Eastern Conference with a 24-13 record, just a half game behind the Philadelphia 76ers.
The Houston Rockets have now lost 13 straight games, and the fans are not happy that the once consistent playoff team has sunk to the bottom of the Western Conference, just above the Timberwolves, the NBA’s worst team
I know how that feels, being a lifelong New York Knicks fan, but I’d be lying if I said I felt bad for Rockets fans, it’s time to rebuild.
