  • Raptors visit struggling Nets in search of ninth straight win

Houston Rockets superstar guard James Harden sat out of his team's 105-82 win over the Dallas Mavericks on Sunday due to left knee soreness. "But it just gave other guys an opportunity to step up".

The Toronto Raptors withstood a late surge from Houston to halt the Rockets' 17-game National Basketball Association winning streak with a 108-105 victory Friday in a clash of conference leaders. The Rockets finished 17-for-45 from beyond the arc. During this winning streak, those numbers are 114 points per game and 47 percent shooting with an offensive rating of 114.5.

Before this three-year stretch, Toronto's winningest season was 49 in 2013-14 when its season ended with a one-point loss to the Nets in the first round of the playoffs.

"A little rest, a little making sure he's ready for the next game", D'Antoni said. "They did what they had to do, and we just couldn't make enough shots". Toronto blew a 10-point lead late in the fourth quarter and ultimately posted a 114-113 victory at Brooklyn when DeRozan scored 35 points and converted the go-ahead 3-point play with 26.1 seconds left in overtime.

The third seed and the 10th seed in the west are only separated by 3.5 games.

"The coaches get to know us and it's a chance for us to get to know the coaches and the organization, and like I said, I'm really enjoying it". "It took three heads to pull me off the court tonight".

Harden will sit out the front half of the back-to-back set but has already been cleared to return on Monday night against the San Antonio Spurs. The Rockets are 5-3 without him in the lineup. D'Antoni was on hand in nearby Frisco, Texas, to watch his alma mater, Marshall, coached by his brother Dan, win the Conference USA Tournament final Saturday. Warney has averaged 20 points in 40 games for the Mavericks' G-League affiliate, the Texas Legends.

Houston trailed by 15 at half-time and were down by 17 with less than five minutes to play in the third quarter. Finney-Smith had played Saturday after missing 51 with a quadriceps injury.

What McDermott may not enjoy is the second leg of a tough back-to-back the Mavs will be facing when they host the Houston Rockets at 6 p.m. Sunday at American Airlines Center.
