The Rox backcourt of Patrick Beverly and James Harden decided to ring in the new year behind the three point arc. Combined the two of them hit 12 three points on 23 attempts. The Rockets ended the night with 17 total threes in the 102-83 drubbing of the Hornets.
Harden shot 12 of 19 from the floor and ended with 36 points, 7 rebounds, 6 assists, 2 steals and a block.
The Hornets are still struggling and this time they can’t blame it on Lance Stephenson as he still sits out with a pelvis injury. Al Jefferson is now out at least a month with a groin strain.
Gerald Henderson stepped up to make up some of that production loss and got 16 points. 4 rebounds, 2 assists and a steal. Gary Neal came off the bench with 10 points, 6 rebounds, 2 assists and a steal.
