Rockets Abuse Spurs Gym , Sink 22 3-Pointers in 126-99, Game 1 Victory

“I cannot believe what I’m seeing,” Kevin Harlan marveled Monday night, with under a minute left in the first half.

Most likely nobody watching the ‘NBA on TNT’ expected to see a deflated San Antonio Spurs at a 30-point deficit against a red-hot Houston Rockets team.

Houston held a 69-39 lead in the first half, the Spurs’ largest halftime deficit under Popovich. The Rockets hit 12 3-pointers through the first 24 minutes as well, the most San Antonio has allowed to a playoff opponent in the opening two quarters.

The Rockets were 22 for 50 behind the arc, the most 3s attempted and made against the Spurs in their long postseason history.
