What a way for Houston to clinch a playoff spot: The Rockets pulled out a 101-98 victory in Houston when Jermaine O'Neal was called for goaltending Harden's last-second three-point attempt. O'Neal gifted Harden the points by reaching into the cylinder to goaltend the shot after the ball initially rimmed off. The basket, which prevented overtime, held up upon video review and put the finishing touches on a 9-3 Rockets run in the game's final three minutes.
