WASHINGTON, May 22 (Xinhua) -- Houston Rockets stars James Harden and Chris Paul combined for 57 points in a hard-fought Game 4 95-92 victory over the Golden State Warriors in the West Finals at Oracle Arena on Tuesday.
In an exciting contest that featured huge runs by both teams, including a 12-0 start to the game by the Warriors, Houston tightened up defensively just in time and dominated the fourth quarter which the Rockets won at 25-12.
Stephen Curry had 28 points and Kevin Durant 27 points for Golden State, but the Warriors took a blow ahead of the game when their forward Andre Iguodala was ruled out due to knee problem.
After the nail-biting loss, the Warriors' NBA-record postseason winning streak at home ended at 16 games.
The two teams draw at 2-2 and Game 5 will be held at Houston on Thursday.
