Raptors snap Rockets' 17-game winning streak

Fresh off having their 18-game winning streak snapped in Toronto on Friday, the Rockets may be without their superstar and MVP candidate Sunday in Dallas. MVP candidate James Harden scored a game-high 40 points, as Houston came up on the losing end for the first time since January 26 at New Orleans. "I'm happy to be home, I'm working on this new album for the city", said the Raptors global ambassador while standing center court in the Air Canada Centre. "Same swagger. Nothing changed". Casey asks. "We're gonna find out". "We take that disrespect", DeRozan says, "and carry it into games". I just don't see this one being close as the Raptors are just rolling at the moment and they should be able to make it nine straight with an easy double-digit win here. D'Angelo Russell led the team with 26 points on nine of 17 shooting, Spencer Dinwiddie added 13 points with six assists while Caris LeVert chipped in with 10 points and five assists off the bench.

DeRozan said he thinks Harden should have won MVP previous year.

Although it certainly may not feel like it, the Thunder have posted one of the best records in the National Basketball Association since December 1.

The third seed and the 10th seed in the west are only separated by 3.5 games.

Paul missed a go-ahead 3 with 14 seconds to play, then fouled Lowry in the scramble for the rebound. Houston fouled Valanciunas, who made a pair to put Toronto up by three with 5.4 seconds to go.

"A little rest, a little making sure he's ready for the next game", D'Antoni said.
