Timberwolves Blow Another Lead
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — James Harden scored 10 of his 28 points in overtime and the Houston Rockets rallied from 12 points down with just over two minutes to play to win their 10th straight game, 111-109 over the Minnesota Timberwolves on Saturday night.
Harden also had 13 assists and nine rebounds for the Rockets, who have not lost since Nov. 29. Ryan Anderson scored 28 points, and Eric Gordon finished with 20.
Houston trailed 93-81 with 2:04 to play, but Anderson and Trevor Ariza hit two 3-pointers each in a 14-2 run.
Karl-Anthony Towns had 41 points, 15 rebounds and five assists for Minnesota, and Zach LaVine scored 24 points. But the Wolves turned the ball over 22 times and couldn't get a stop down the stretch to miss their chance for their first back-to-back wins this season.
