floor. they compete at a high level. they execute. they have fun and they hold each other accountable. there's a reason why those teams have a small amount of losses during the course of a long season. >> mike: for the rockets it has been so inconsistent. this game a perfect example, as gasol hits another. gasol, 27 points, 17 rebounds, six assists. he's got seven turnovers though. james harden has nine turnovers. the two teams combined 45 turnovers. now an 8-point lead. bickerstaff calls timeout. some of the fans heading out of the united center which was packed once again. got a game tomorrow on abc. the sunday showcase present
