Eric Gordon drains buzzer-beater to lead Rockets past 76ers

Ben Simmons has fallen one assist short of another National Basketball Association double-double as Philadelphia lost at home to Houston, after a three-point buzzer-beater from Eric Gordon. He is averaging 16.4 points, 10 rebounds and 7.4 assists per game.

Down by two, Gordon inbounded the ball to Ryan Anderson with just more than six seconds remaining in the game.

Simmons runs of double-doubles ends with the 76ers loss.

And if it couldn't get any worse, Eric Gordon's buzzer-beating dagger was over a flailing Joel Embiid who went all in to try to break it up and block Gordon to seal the victory for the Sixers.


Only problem: Harden found Eric Gordon in the left-hand corner, whose shot fake got Embiid off of his feet and the 10th-year pro a wide-open 3 as time expired.

Robert Covington was a straight shooter once again for the Sixers, putting up 20 points and had four makes from downtown for the Sixers.

Gordon pump-faked, dribbled once to his right and released a 3-pointer, which went right through the net, giving Houston a 105-104 win in Philadelphia.
