Harden has 30 to help Rockets over Pelicans 121-114

HOUSTON (AP) - -

James Harden scored 30 points and the Houston Rockets used a big run at the beginning of the fourth quarter to take the lead and held on for a 121-114 victory over the New Orleans Pelicans on Sunday night.

The Rockets ended a two-game skid behind the NBA-leading 35th 30-point game for Harden, who leads the league in scoring.

Corey Brewer and Dwight Howard carried Houston in the opening minutes of the fourth quarter combining for all of the Rockets' points in a 14-5 run that put them on top 100-91.

New Orleans scored six straight points to get within five with about a minute left, but Pablo Prigioni made two free throws to extend the lead.

Anthony Davis had 27 points for the Pelicans who are fighting for the final Western Conference playoff spot.
