Last night, the Houston Rockets were on fire (video after the jump). Just about everything they threw up from behind the arc vs. the Golden State Warriors dropped. They tied an NBA-record with an amazing 23 3-pointers made, en route to a 140-109 win. Let’s see if they can do the same tonight vs. Miami.
The Houston Rockets tied an NBA record and set a franchise mark with 23 3-pointers in a 140-109 win over Golden State on Tuesday night.
Jeremy Lin sank five 3-pointers, a career high, and Chandler Parsons and James Harden hit four apiece as the Rockets reached a season-high point total. They also tied an NBA record with 14 3-pointers in the first half and dished out a season-high 35 assists on 46 field goals overall.
Lin scored 28 points, Harden added 18 and Parsons scored 16 for Houston. The Rockets put on the shooting display without their best 3-point shooter — Carlos Delfino sat out with a right elbow injury.
