Before the recap, let me extend my, and The Dreamshake's thoughts to Michael Kidd-Gilchrest. MKG got hit in the back of the head by teammate Jeff Taylor on a defensive play in the 3rd quarter, and appeared to be instantly knocked unconscious. He wasn't moving, or awake, when carried off the court. I think everyone in Houston hope he is fine, and makes a swift and full recovery from this injury.

[Note by Xiane, 02/02/13 10:30 PM CST ] Latest tweets indicate that Kidd-Gilchrest is going to be fine going forward.

The score would tell you this game wasn't close. Checking in at any point from early in the first quarter through the early third quarter, you'd think this game wasn't close. Checking in for the last two minutes, and you'd see a Rockets team cruising to victory as All Star James Harden cemented his first career triple double.
