Kevin Durant responds to center Rockets center Clint Capela

Rockets' juggernaut continues to roll over top teams Rockets' juggernaut continues to roll over top teams

Despite the defeat to the Rockets, the Bay Area franchise is still three-and-a-half games ahead at the top of the Western Conference and have their destiny in their own hands.

Houston improved to 18-0 this season in games where Capela, Harden and Paul all play, including 14-0 when starting those three with Ryan Anderson and Ariza.

The Rockets are now ranked second in the National Basketball Association in scoring this season with an average of 114.7 points per game.

Other times, the Warriors just go into the game completely unfocussed, leading to poor defensive stretches and a plethora of unforced turnovers.

Most notably, the Rockets are a flawless 17-0 when Harden, Paul and Capela are all healthy and in the lineup, per Marc J. Spears of The Undefeated. They nearly pulled off a full playoffs sweep previous year - they lost one game to the Cleveland Cavaliers in the NBA Finals - but head coach Steve Kerr is conscious the Warriors can, in fact, be defeated. He closed with his fourth consecutive double double (22 points and 13 rebounds). It was smart considering the team has two days off before it's next game.

Just two days after beating the reigning league champion Golden State Warriors, Houston quickly refocused on Monday night with a 99-90 victory over the Miami Heat in a battle of first-place National Basketball Association teams.

"You have those games during the season where (you) win the game and move on. out of 82 of them sometimes it's going to be ugly, but you just want to win", Paul said.

-Justise Winslow did his usual damage on both ends and guarded multiple guys, including Harden, Paul and Eric Gordon. "Capela, catch and dunk every night, so it's pretty easy for him".

The Heat made its first six shots and 11 of its first 12 and built a 26-12 lead when Whiteside made a jumpshot with 4:34 left in the opening quarter.

"We get an emotional victory on Saturday and then. we just didn't come out of the gates very well", coach Mike D'Antoni said.

With the win, though, Houston does hold the tie-breaker having won two of the three meetings between them this year.

The Warriors are a side who have become accustomed to making title runs unlike Houston, whose last NBA Finals appearance came way back in 1995.

But, for the first time in a long time Monday, they were at full strength.

"We're for real, for real".
