The Houston Rockets defeated the San Antonio Spurs 125-104 on Sunday thanks to another outstanding performance from NBA MVP candidate James Harden. In addition, reserve player Eric Gordon came off the bench to continue the Rockets' surge. Despite Kawhi Leonard and LaMarcus Aldridge leading the scoring charge for San Antonio, the team was simply outdone by a fired up Rockets offense. Here's a look at how Houston evened up this NBA Playoffs series on Sunday on their home court.

Houston's Game 4 win

In today's victory, the Houston Rockets received 28 points from their All-Star James Harden.

He finished with a 10-for-18 shooting performance while also dishing out 12 assists and grabbing five rebounds. His teammate Eric Gordon came off the bench to record 22 points on 8-for-13 shooting while Trevor Ariza had 16 points and Ryan Anderson had 13 points. The duo of Ariza and Anderson also went 5-for-10 from three-point range. Unfortunately, the team also saw big man Nene go down with a groin injury during the game, so stay tuned for more on that.

In this latest matchup, Houston roared out to a 34-22 start after the first quarter. However, their opponents came right back with a 31-23 performance in the third, only for the Rockets to douse that with their 34-23 third quarter and a dominant fourth.

The home team finished things off with a 34-28 finale to put the visitors away. On the night, Houston shot 52.6 percent from the floor and hit 44.2 percent of the threes they attempted. In addition, they limited their turnovers to just nine while the Spurs had 14 of them.

For the San Antonio Spurs, LaMarcus Aldridge and Kawhi Leonard once again were the leading scorers but they had 10 points less each than last time.

The two Spurs' stars had 16 points each and combined for 11 rebounds and 11 assists. Leonard also had four steals for his stat line. The team got the most points from Jonathon Simmons who came off the bench for 17 points on the day.
