NBA Playoffs 2014: Mo Williams gets the steal & 3-pointer (video)


After losing the first two games of their first round playoff series with the Portland Trail Blazers at home, the Houston Rockets knew they needed to steal a couple of games in Portland to get home court advantage back. They were successful in game 3 when seldom-used rookie Troy Daniels broke a 116-116 tie with what would wind up being the game-winning three-pointer with 11 seconds left.

In Sunday night’s game 4, the Rockets were in control, but a later 14-3 run gave the Blazers a five-point lea.d The Rockets answered with seven straight points, largely thanks to center Dwight Howard, to take the lead.

After a Blazers’ miss, Jeremy Lin got the rebound looking to extend the Rockets’ lead, but Mo Williams came from behind and stole the ball. Williams saved it from going out-of-bounds and eventually got the ball back, drilling a three to take the lead.

Williams had another attempt to win the game at the horn, but his shot was long and the game went to overtime.
