MIAMI LETDOWN

Rockets suffer first real disappointment in ugly 109-103 loss to Heat

The loss in Minnesota was fatigue. This loss? No such excuse. The Rockets got Clint Capela back in action but lost Ryan Anderson to the flu and they shot like they could have used him. Bricking 30 of their 39 three-point attempts and turning it over 17 times, the Rockets fell to the lowly 11-win Heat Tuesday night in Miami, falling to 32-12 on the season. It's Houston's third loss in their last four games, and the schedule doesn't get any easier with Milwaukee coming to town on Wednesday and the Warriors on Friday. James Harden had another 40-point triple-double, going for 40 points, 10 assists and 12 rebounds, but he was essentially carrying the team tonight. Eric Gordon was just 3-17 from the field, struggling with the toe injury and tweaking his ankle in the game. Mike D'Antoni said Gordon didn't have any lift for his shot as a result and the injury makes it "tough" for Wednesday's game.
