Best Sports Handicappers Free Picks. Tucker arrived at the arena about 70 minutes before tip-off after attending the memorial service.Harden scored 37 points, and the Rockets beat the New York Knicks 123-112 for their fourth straight victory.''It's unbelievable what he can do tired or distracted and not in his routine but he just keeps plugging away,'' coach Mike D'Antoni said. ''That's why we value him. He doesn't miss games or minutes and he just plays.'' Harden had 31 by halftime, helping Houston to a 72-57 lead at the break. He cooled down eventually, but his first-half work put the Rockets in control against the struggling Knicks, who lost their fourth in a row.He looked worn out after the game as he prepared to spend his first night at home since before the NBA All-Star Game.''Long very, very emotional day,'' he said.Harden was asked what he'd remember most about Bryant, who was killed along with his daughter and seven others in a helicopter crash last month.''Just his competitive spirit,'' Harden said.

Starter Danuel House raved about the value of such contributions from the backups.''It makes your team very dangerous,'' he said.
