National Basketball Association buys Steve Kerr's exhausted excuse for since-deleted tweet

All-Star point guard Chris Paul delivered when the game was on the line Thursday night, scoring three consecutive baskets that propelled the Houston Rockets to a 102-91 victory against the Spurs at the AT&T Center. The Rockets had a rate of 9.0 (better than their season average of 12.7), while the Spurs posted a mark of 15.0. "All night, defensively, we were locked in". San Antonio ended up outscoring the Rockets in the final quarter.

Although the Silver and Black lost, they grew as a team and learned some valuable lessons that could come in handy at playoff time.

The Rockets all but ran San Antonio out of its own building in the first half, jumping out to a 54-38 halftime lead behind 14 points from Harden, 13 from Green and 11 points by Anderson.

"I rarely even send a tweet, let alone delete one, so I gave it to DeMarco", Kerr said.

Thanks to their 91-89 win over the Miami Heat on Wednesday, the Wine & Gold still own the best home record in the National Basketball Association since November 7 at 17-2 (.895).

"Every game is important right now", said LaMarcus Aldridge, the Spurs' leading scorer at 22.3 points per game.

She adds, everyone should wash their hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds and to do not forget to cover their cough. Frequently clean commonly touched surfaces such as doorknobs, refrigerator handles, phones and faucets.

Aldridge scored 14 points and Green had 11 in the first half for the Spurs, who shot 40.5 percent (17/42) overall and 25 percent (2/8) from beyond the arc.

Timberwolves center Karl-Anthony Towns scored 24 points on 10-of-13 shooting in addition to 11 rebounds in Minnesota's 108-89 win over the Bucks.

"A friend DM'd me and said what do you think about this clip, and I responded to him", Kerr said. "James hit a couple of threes back-to-back and that's talent taking over, which doesn't bother me at all". When they played earlier this season, the Rockets beat them with offense, 124-109.

Isaiah Thomas vs Chris Paul - Paul and Thomas are both multiple time All-Stars, but are having vastly different seasons. This time it was more due to their defense-something Houston is not exactly known for. James Harden dropped a team-high twenty-eight points in their last game. "I tried to be effective, be a little more aggressive and get to the rim".

If the Spurs are going to have a chance to win either, they will need to get Kawhi Leonard back. Houston will try to ensure February doesn't get off to a good start for the Cavaliers in Cleveland (also Saturday night).
