Rockets' James Harden hits game-winner in overtime, dropping 44-point triple-double in win over Warriors

It was a shoot-out in the Bay, with the Houston Rockets rallying in overtime to complete a huge comeback win over the Golden State Warriors 135-134.

James Harden was the hero on the night, knocking down the go-ahead bucket from deep with one second left in overtime as Houston erased a 20-point first half deficit to win their sixth game in a row.

Harden finished with 44 points, 10 rebounds and 15 assists, connecting on 10-of-23 from beyond the arc.

Clint Capela recorded 29 points and 21 rebounds, helping the Rockets cut the deficit with some strong play around the rim, but it was Harden who came up with the big bucket at the end of regulation to send it into OT.
