39 percent shooting from the field was all it took for the Houston Rockets to earn a Game 4 victory on Tuesday night. Star guards James Harden and Chris Paul combined to score 57 of the team's 95 points as they stole one from the Golden State Warriors at Oracle Arena. Houston thrived at the free-throw line, going 23-of-27 on its attempts from the stripe. Small forward P.J. Tucker also made a big impact, grabbing 16 rebounds to lead all players.
For Golden State, former MVPs Steph Curry and Kevin Durant combined for 55 points. It was a tough night, though, for All-Star guard Klay Thompson, who shot just 4-of-13 en route to 10 points. This included a missed three-pointer and missed mid-range shot in the final 40 seconds of game time. The team as a whole struggled to get to the free-throw line at the same rate as the Rockets, finishing with only 14 free-throw attempts.
