Sure enough, McHale has seen enough from his bench and comes back with the starters and Brewer for Ariza, his team up 15 with 6:56 left.
Trevor Ariza with the free throws and also, I miss that 2009 Lakers team. http://t.co/TEV9AcKsaS
Trevor Ariza has missed several open shots tonight. He's now 2-10 from the field, 1-6 3P. Lakers just so bad that Rockets still up by 17.
Harden had an open 3. Passed instead to a wide open Papanikolaou to try to get him going. Didn't work. Next time down, set up Ariza instead.
Barnes, Green, Bogut, Lee, Iguodala, Speights vs. Ariza, Beverley, Motiejunas, Terry, J.Smith, Brewer ... Good lord.
Trevor Ariza came over to the Warriors bench to chat with former Lakers teammate Luke Walton after the game.
Trevor Ariza guaranteed Draymond Green touchdown dances after every Warriors basket from now on.
Barnes took off for Ariza ahead of curry either ready to swing first or cut curry off at the pass.
Ariza bumped Curry and Curry started to go after Ariza. Green held him back. If it's a double T, Curry is ejected.
Have never seen Curry this angry. Did he want to fight Ariza?
Trevor Ariza couldn’t do that
GSW vs HOU starters: GSW -- Curry, Thompson, Barnes, Green, Bogut; HOU -- Beverley, Harden, Ariza, Motiejunas, Howard. Out: Ezeli; Jones.
Trevor Ariza went down after fouling Donald Sloan. Seemed to have been kicked. Stays in the game.
Trevor Ariza gets up and walks on his own, remaining on the floor.
Trevor Ariza is down on the floor near the basket.
Pacers can cut this to 7 at the line, and Trevor Ariza is down hurt after getting hit defending the fast break.
All the Rockets scoring has come from Beverley (6 points) and Ariza (5 points).
D-Mo is a very underrated passer on the fast break. Rockets jump out to an 11-2 early lead thanks to two triples from Bev, one from Ariza.
No changes in Rockets starting lineup -- Howard, Motiejunas, Ariza, Harden and Beverley. Again, by 'lineup' McHale might have mean rotation.
Trevor Ariza: "We did not play hard today. We did not give a good effort. We paid for it."
GSW at HOU starters: GSW -- Curry, Thompson, Barnes, Green, Bogut; HOU -- Beverley, Harden, Ariza, Motiejunas, Howard. Out: Ezeli.
Ariza on Harden: "James was huge... making plays for us, for himself, just being a true leader out there. What I think, an MVP candidate."
With last Ariza 3PT FG, Rockets have set NBA single-season record with their 11th game with 15+ 3PT FGM (HOU and NYK 12-13 10).
