Rapid Reaction: Comeback falls shorts, Rockets fall in 0-2 hole

James Harden and Dwight Howard shine but Rockets come up just short in Game 2. Oh man. I mean… Let’s just…I don't know. Maybe, lets just take a moment. Ok, now that I’ve had that moment, lets get into the game. James Harden was brilliant once again. Dwight Howard showed just how tough he was and turned in a marvelous performance. Other than that, the Rockets were more than up and down as a team. Especially on defense. It’s one thing to force a shooter into a tough or contested shot. The Warriors did a lot of that to James Harden in Game 1 but he made shots anyways. In Game 2, the...
