The Nets have now set a franchise record with its seventh straight road victory, and now won 10 of their last 11 games.
Harden received a mix of reactions from the small crowd of 3,615 fans at the Toyota Center in Houston. Many of the fans jeered the nine-time All-Star when he was introduced before the game and more boos echoed through the arena the first few times he touched the ball.
During a timeout in the first quarter, the Rockets honored Harden by playing a short video on the jumbotron. The video showcased some of Harden’s best moments throughout his eight seasons in Houston.

There were more cheers than boos as the video played. Once the video ended, Harden stepped out of the Nets’ huddle and raised his arms before placing his hands in a praying position to acknowledge the fans.
“A lot of mixed emotions from the fans,” Harden told ESPN after the game. … “Credit to the ownership of the Rockets, the Fertitta family for putting my jersey in the rafters. Hopefully that shows — on the court, off the court — the contributions that I had to this city.
“I appreciate the support, love — the show goes on.”
The 2018 NBA Most Valuable Player, spent eight seasons with the Rockets before demanding a trade in last January. Shortly after, the team traded him to the Nets in a blockbuster four-team deal.
