Eric Gordon and P.J. Tucker sparked a revival by Houston’s role players, and the Rockets evened the Western Conference finals with a 127-105 victory over the visiting Golden State Warriors in Game 2 on Wednesday.
Gordon scored 27 points off the bench, connecting on 6 of 9 3-point attempts, while Tucker chipped in a postseason-career-high 22 points on 5-of-6 shooting from behind the arc.
Rockets guard James Harden added 27 points and 10 rebounds. He wasn’t forced to carry the load singularly as he did in the series opener, when he paired 41 points with seven assists in a 13-point defeat.
