Brooks, Rockets edge Warriors

He was whistled for back-to-back charges late in the second quarter and the fans booed the officials at the start of halftime.

Golden State came out of the break and made six of seven shots to pull ahead 66-62. But the young Warriors are still trying to learn how to finish games and lost their fourth in five.

Adelman told his team it could come back.

"That's what we talked about: We're down 10 but they'll let us back in the game," Adelman said.

Brooks' floating jumper with 4:04 to play pulled the Rockets to 103-99, then he cut it to 103-101 with a driving layin the next time down the court. Houston tied it on two free throws by Landry with 2:55 to play and his layup on the next possession gave the Rockets the lead.
