Despite being down by double digits, the Spurs didn't give up. DeRozan and Aldridge continued to be productive, and the Spurs' bench players stepped up and hit some big shots. The Rockets, meanwhile, seemed to lose their focus and began to turn the ball over and miss easy shots. With just a few minutes left in the game, the Spurs had cut the Rockets' lead to just three points. However, Harden once again came up big, hitting a clutch three-pointer and several key free throws to seal the victory for his team.
