"We Just Didn't Have It"

"Tired" Rockets get run over in the 4th, fall 99-90 to Davis, Pelicans

The Rockets have been on a tremendous run, but they ran out of gas Thursday night. Anthony Davis and the Pelicans scored 34 points in the fourth quarter, dropping the Rockets 99-90 at the Toyota Center. "Just tonight from the beginning we didn't have any legs," said James Harden. "We're a no excuse team, but we just didn't have it. It's one of those days." The Rockets had finished an overtime game in Denver just 17 hours before. Harden struggled, going 8-23 from the field and missing a pair of free throws and coughing up a turnover late. Dwight Howard, who suffered a shoulder strain in the game, finished with 17 points and 13 rebounds. Donatas Motiejunas took a shot to the eye in the first half, leaving the game and returning in the second half.
