The Atlanta Hawks fell to the Houston Rockets Saturday night, extending their league-high losing streak to 10.
James Harden starred for the home Rockets, scoring 60 points in just 30 minutes of play. His 31 in the first half made sure the Hawks were never really in the contest.
They were outscored by 17 in the 1st period, and by 12 in the 2nd.
Houston really pulled away in the 3rd, when they nearly hung 50 points on Atlanta. The Hawks were outscored 46-21 in the disastrous quarter.
The lone highlight of the Hawks’ night was once again Trae Young.
