James Harden forced his way out of Houston without bringing the Rockets an NBA title. Now that he's in Brooklyn, the Rockets hope the huge haul of draft picks they received in the trade will allow them to chase championships in the future. Houston dealt Harden to the Nets last week, a day after he said the Rockets weren't ''good enough,'' in a four-team trade that also involved Cleveland and Indiana.
Julius Randle scored 20 points with 12 rebounds and RJ Barrett had 19 and 11 on Sunday to help the New York Knicks snap a five-game losing streak and beat the Boston Celtics 105-75. Jaylen Brown scored 25 for Boston, which had the best record in the Eastern Conference after winning five in a row but suffered its biggest blowout and lowest-scoring output of the season. ''I don't believe that's who this team is,'' Celtics coach Brad Stevens said.
