James Harden, Rockets roll to 135-105 rout of young Warriors

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) Russell Westbrook vowed to better control his emotions down the stretch of the regular season. They sometimes get the better of him and he realizes he's under the watchful eye of referees because of his reputation, but he won't ever back down.

James Harden had 29 points and 10 assists, Westbrook added 21 points and 10 assists before being ejected, and the Houston Rockets beat the cold-shooting Golden State Warriors 135-105 on Thursday night in the teams' first game back from the All-Star break.

Things got testy with 6:04 to play when Westbrook tussled with several Warriors, including bumping Damion Lee but "it wasn't on purpose." After a replay review, Westbrook received his second technical of the night and was ejected.
