James Harden extended his streak of 30-point games to 23 with a 40 point performance in a 103-98 comeback victory over the Orlando Magic Sunday night.
The Rockets trailed by as many as 16 and never led until about four minutes left in the game. Harden hit a three with 1:15 left in the game and then added a two-point jumper on the next possession to extend the lead. Chris Paul returned to the line-up after missing extensive time with a hamstring injury and knocked down two free throws to ice the game with 13.6 seconds remaining.
Kenneth Faried continued to bring big time energy to the floor scoring 12 points with 10 rebounds, five assists and two steals. Eric Gordon chipped in 16 points in the win.
Houston will host the New Orleans Pelicans Tuesday night at 7:00pm.
