The score after the first quarter was 21-19. At half, it was 49-43. It took a 60-point second half with fourth-quarter garbage time for either team to break 100, let alone 90. In fact, without a huge fourth from James Harden, the Rockets don’t even break 90.
Offensively, LaMarcus Aldridge was able to pick up the slack for a recently injured Tony Parker, who will miss the rest of the postseason. Aldridge finished with 26 points on 12-20 shooting and four blocks. The Spurs’ big had an offensive rating of 106, which dwarfed any player on the Rockets.
As for the Rockets, they were beat by their own style. Since the Rockets live by launching 3s and finishing at the rim, the Spurs countered by forcing them to pick shooting 3s. With their classic two-big lineup, the Spurs packed the paint and denied lanes for drives. Subsequently, the Rockets had to kick out to open 3-point-shooters with three or four black jerseys surrounding them. Worse for Houston, they couldn’t hit those 3s.
