Lou Williams scored 14 points on 4-of-8 from the field and Eric Gordon dropped 11 points on 4-of-8 from the field in Monday’s win over the Spurs.
The bench duo only played 23 and 24 minutes each due to the blowout nature of the game. They came out firing at the beginning and spurred the Rockets to a 30 point halftime lead. They combined 5-of-10 from deep. Having two guards who can drain threes and drive to the hoop to score created some serious matchup issues for the Spurs who had to put in some younger more athletic players to try and keep a lid on the Rockets, but to no avail. Game 2 will be on Wednesday in San Antonio.
The Rockets are 11-of-23 on 3s, matching the most they made in any first-round game. It's midway through the second quarter.
