For the first time since the Western Conference Finals began, fans were treated to a competitive game between the Houston Rockets and Golden State Warriors.

In the end, the Rockets figured out a way to get the job done on the road, winning 95-92 while evening up the series at two games apiece on their way back to Houston for Game 5.

The final minutes were complete mayhem at Oracle Arena, as the Warriors tried, in vain, to find their offense while the Rockets did just enough to pull out the win.

It was a very ugly finish, especially for the Warriors.

Both teams gave it their all. James Harden and Chris Paul led the Rockets with 30 and 26 points, respectively. Kevin Durant and Stephen Curry did the same for the Warriors, going for 27 and 28 points.

Twitter reacted to the frantic finish, which really sets up a dramatic conclusion to this series, which is now a three-game affair.

This win by Houston not only was the first at Oracle in the playoffs in a while, it also snapped a 16-game home winning streak in postseason play by Golden State.
