Just a few months ago, on Christmas Day, the Warriors miraculously upset the Rockets on national television. That wasn't the same case tonight.

James Harden and the Houston Rockets came into Chase and dominated the Warriors 135-105.

As a team, Houston shot 51% from deep, while Golden State only mustered to shoot 22%. Just wasn't the Warriors night from behind the arc.

Andrew Wiggins led Golden State in scoring tonight with 22 points on an efficient 10-of-17 shooting. With Steph Curry on his way back, it'll be interesting to see if these two develop any chemistry that will carry over into next season.

Eric Paschall continues to prove that he will have a role next season and beyond for the Golden State Warriors. He led bench players in scoring with 12p/7r/2a.

The Warriors are now 12-44, which is good enough for dead last in the NBA. Quite the fall from grace after going to five straight NBA Finals. But the dynasty is not over just yet... it's simply on pause.

Golden State's next game will be this Sunday against Zion Williamson and the New Orleans Pelicans. Tip-off is at 5:30pm, coverage starts at 4:00pm right here on 95.7 The Game.
