Eric Gordon scored at least 20 points for the second time in his last four games, totaling 23 points including three triples, along with three assists, two steals and one rebound in 31 minutes during Monday's 117-114 loss to the Thunder.
Gordon provided solid offense for the Rockets once again but it was not enough as they blew a 15-point lead, succumbing to the Thunder for the second straight game. After racking up a combined four defensive stats only two days prior, Gordon managed another two steals in this one and that aspect of his game is certainly something to monitor. In saying that, we have seen a big enough sample size over the past few years to suggest that this kind of defensive productivity is unlikely to stick.
