The Golden State Warriors wanted to take a commanding lead over the Houston Rockets by winning both games on the road, but fell short as The Beard and his team took over, winning 127-105

The Warriors' offense lacked as many on social media said Kevin Durant was carrying the team. Klay Thompson and Stephen Curry's usual "splash brothers" routine was noticeably absent as the two teams duked it out in Houston.

James Harden and Eric Gordon each scored 27 points to lead a balanced attack and the Houston Rockets routed the Golden State Warriors 127-105 on Wednesday night to even the Western Conference finals at one game apiece.

The Rockets didn't trail after the first quarter and led by double digits for most of the night. They head to Oakland, California for Game 3 on Sunday night feeling much better after rebounding from a deflating 119-106 loss in the series opener.

P.J. Tucker added a playoff career-high 22 and Trevor Ariza had 19 as both bounced back after struggling in Game 1.

Kevin Durant had 38 points after scoring 37 in the opener, but Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson combined for just 24 points.
