Harden shrugs off loss; D'Antoni warns of trouble

HOUSTON -- After watching the Golden State Warriors snap the Houston Rockets' nine-game winning streak, James Harden wanted people to know what the 106-104 loss meant.

"It's OK," Harden said when answering a question that started with how the Rockets were on a roll. "Yeah. Nah, it's alright, man. We lost. We know we did. Good thing about it is we play again on Friday. It's one loss."

Of course, a loss to the Warriors has the potential to carry more weight than others, especially for the Rockets, who Golden State has eliminated in the playoffs in three of the last four postseasons, including last season's seven-game Western Conference finals.
