The last time the two teams got together, it came down to a nail bitter finish in L.A. where Trevor Ariza shut Chris Paul down on the last play of the game. The Rockets won by two, 100-98.

James Harden had a game-high 34 points and flustered everyone from Matt Barnes to Chris Paul that tried defending him. DeAndre Jordan had 20 rebounds, most in the game, although Dwight Howard wasn’t present. Harden and Matt Barnes had a slight scuffle, however James got the best of him and closed the game out for the Rockets via the free throw line.

The Rockets will need to continue the chemistry they’ve had in Round 1 to have a shot against the athletic Clippers. Watch for some extra-curricular activities after the plays between some of these prideful stars, thanks to an intense start in game 4 of the season series.
