Houston Rockets’ James Harden gets key defensive stop as scoring streak continues


HOUSTON — Coach Nick Nurse came up with a simple strategy during a timeout when the Toronto Raptors had a chance to complete a wild comeback: target James Harden.

The Raptors, who trailed by 19 points with 5 minutes, 35 seconds left and 11 with 1:14 left, executed the plan by forcing Harden to switch onto Kawhi Leonard after Norman Powell set a high screen on PJ Tucker.
