James Harden finished with 41 points as Houston won game three to reduce Golden State's series lead to 2-1.

The Houston Rockets defeated the Golden State Warriors 126-121 in overtime to get a foothold back into their Western Conference semi-final series.

Having lost their first two games in the second round of the play-offs, the Rockets denied the reigning champions another victory at Toyota Center to cut the gap to 2-1.

Houston star James Harden shone again with a 41-point haul – including a three-pointer with 49 seconds remaining on the clock – despite still showing a sore eye from the injury he picked up in game two.

His Rockets team-mate Eric Gordon amassed 30 points, hitting a total of seven three-pointers, in the best post-season game of his career.

Kevin Durant top-scored for the Warriors, pouring in 46 points, but Houston held out to halve Golden State's series lead.
