Τhe Houston Rockets endured the come-back of the Golden State Warriors and successfully defended their home court (112-108) to even the series (2-2).

The hosts took over from the second quarter onwards and never looked back. They led by as many as 17 points and sealed the deal, despite the late effort of the two-time defending champions to turn things around (110-108).

Five players scored in double figures for the winners, with James Harden leading the way with 38 points and 10 rebounds.

Kevin Durant (34 points) and Stephen Curry (30 points) combined for 64 points for the losing squad, yet they both missed the game-tying three-pointers and the Rockets earned the victory.

Game 5 will be played in Oakland on Wednesday (08/05).
