James Harden & Rockets beat Wizards 159-158

Payton Beasley, Writer and Editor

The Houston Rockets have beat the Washington Wizards 159-158 in a very close game. There really was no way the Wizards could win, as James Harden (#13) dropped 59 points, 9 assists, and 3 rebounds. His partner in crime, recently aquired superstar Russell Westbrook, dropped 17 points, 12 assists, and 10 rebounds, in a triple double effort. Harden was for sure their best player, however.

The Wizards also had one game of the ages, as young star Bradley Beal dropped 46 points, 8 assists, and 6 rebounds in a losing effort. The Wizards were not favored, but they played very well, as rookie Rui Hachimura dropped 23 points and 5 rebounds. The Wizards weren’t even supposed to be close, they were -35 on the spread. But they ended up losing by one. A very close game that should go down as a instant classic.

Congrats to the Rockets on their victory!
