HOUSTON (AP) James Harden scored 35 points for his 22nd straight game with 30 or more and the Houston Rockets never trailed in a 121-119 victory over the Toronto Raptors on Friday night.
After averaging 52.2 points over the last five games, capped by a franchise-record 61 on Wednesday night at New York, Harden slowed a bit as all of Houstons starters scored 10 points or more.
Eric Gordon led that group with 24, Kenneth Faried had 21, P.J. Tucker added 18 and Austin Rivers 13. Faried also had a season-high 14 rebounds and blocked two shots in his third game with the Rockets.
