Ultimate Rockets » Rockets use big third quarter to bag Bucks: "MILWAUKEE — Rockets coach Kevin McHale liked what he saw in the third quarter. So did Jeremy Lin, once he returned from getting stitches.
James Harden scored 29 points to lead the Rockets to a 115-101 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks on Friday night.
Harden hit 11 of 18 shots from the floor to go with seven assists and four steals for the Rockets, who have won 10 of their last 13 games.
After trailing by 18 points in the second quarter, the Rockets outscored the Bucks 30-14 in the third quarter and led 77-72 at the start of the fourth.
“Really, that third quarter is about as good as we can play,” McHale said. “We locked down on the defensive end, we pushed it up, we got shots and made shots. Then we started blowing some of their plays up just by being aggressive. I was really proud of the guys.”
