Harden had brought the Rockets all the way back, hitting the Bucks with a sudden barrage to get within a chance to steal a win.


The Bucks ended the Rockets' 10-game home winning streak on Wednesday, 116-109, with the showdown of MVP frontrunners Harden and Giannis Antetokounmpo living up to the billing.


Heading into the final five minutes, the Bucks still led by 13 when Harden drained a 3-pointer over Antetokounmpo, and just like that, the Rockets took off, finishing on one end and getting stops on the other as they had not through most of the second half.


The Rockets missed nine consecutive shots, eight from beyond the 3-point line, after their brief run as the Bucks built a 15-point lead.
