Cold Shooting Night Leads to Rockets Loss Against Bucks

With all eyes on the James Harden vs Giannis Antetokounmpo MVP matchup, the Houston Rockets could not find a rhythm on offense and fell to the Bucks Tuesday night, 108-94.

Harden managed a double-double of 23 points and 10 rebounds, facing a Bucks defense that essentially forced him to the rim and took away the three point shot completely. While driving to the hole, Harden would dish out to the perimeter but along with himself, Eric Gordon and PJ Tucker combined to shoot 2-22 from behind the arc.

Chris Paul has 19 points and nine assists with Clint Capela manufacturing a double-double of 17 points and 11 rebounds. Danuel House came off the bench and chipped in 15 points.

The Rockets shot 31% from three and 36% from the field in the loss.

Next up for Houston is a home game against the Denver Nuggets Thursday night at 7:00pm.
