Gordon, Tucker lead charge as Rockets blow out Warriors to even series

Welcome back, Eric Gordon. The Rockets supersub finally busted out in the playoffs, scoring 27 points off the bench, as the Rockets blew out the Golden State Warriors 127-105 Wednesday night to even the series 1-1. Game 3 is Sunday in Oakland. Gordon had it going on all night, hitting 6-9 from downtown. He wasn't alone -- PJ Tucker was brilliant, scoring a playoff career-high and Rocket-high 22 points on 8-9 shooting (5-6 from deep). That was the support James Harden (27 points, 10 boards) needed as the Rockets cruised. Chris Paul scored 11 of his 16 in the third quarter when the Rockets held off the Warriors' death lineup, which especially thrives in the third. Big key was the defensive effort as the Rockets held Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson to 24 points on 10-29 shooting combined.
