Houston
Golden State

[GOLDEN STATE] — The Golden State Warriors played host to the Houston Rockets last night and the Warriors did everything that was asked of them, walking away with the 107-98 victory. The win bumps Golden State's record up to 62-14 on the season, while the loss drags Houston's down to 51-25. Though a win's a win and Warriors fans will settle for whatever they can get their hands on, there's plenty of room for improvement in the future. Games likes these are essential for any team with bigger aspirations.

While there were no historic individual performances to speak of, Stephen Curry's 24 points, 7 rebounds, 5 assists, 0 blocks and 2 steals in 35 minutes will serve fantasy owners well. Ask anybody, however - Curry included - and the most important part is that the Warriors walked away with the W. Each win adds up over the course of the season with the end goal being far more satisfying than a Tweetable stat line.

Though not quite able to steal the show, James Harden did a fine job leading his ultimately unsuccessful Rockets. Harden's 17 points, 12 rebounds and 8 assists were one bright spot for the team that spun out in the matchup.

Golden State's offensive contributions were complemented from a decent showing on the defensive end of the ball. While they didn't exactly shut down the visiting Rockets, they did limit them to a point total in line with their season average. Not every performance can be a home run, so the Warriors will settle for the upper hand in this one.

Up next for the reeling Warriors will be a date with the Washington Wizards while the visiting Rockets will look to bounce back in a matchup with the Phoenix Suns.
