Harden with 37; Rockets end skid in 117-111 win over 'Wolves

HOUSTON (AP) James Harden had 37 points and the Houston Rockets snapped a four-game skid with a 117-111 win over the Minnesota Timberwolves on Tuesday night.

The Rockets trailed for much of the early part of this game but used a big run in the third quarter to take the lead and hold on for the win. It was a much-needed victory for a team which called a blowout loss to Orlando on Sunday night “rock bottom.”

“We got a little desperate and we played harder and we played with a little bit more purpose," coach Mike D'Antoni said. “And then we made big shots that we hadn't been making."
