Notebook: Rockets 113, Wizards 112


Matt Miller, for NBA.com
Posted Thu Feb 13, 2014 12:34 AM - Updated Thu Feb 13, 2014 12:34 AM

THE FACT: The Houston Rockets have won 14 consecutive games when they score at least 100 points, the longest active streak in the league.

THE LEAD: James Harden drained a free-throw attempt with four seconds remaining in regulation before converting a driving layup with 0.7 seconds left to send the Rockets into the All-Star beak on a seven-game winning streak, as Houston outlasted the Washington Wizards 113-112 on Wednesday at Toyota Center. Dwight Howard added 24 points and 16 rebounds, while Chandler Parsons finished with 18 points, 12 boards and six assists for Houston (36-17), which improved to 11-0 at home this season against Eastern Conference competition.

Trevor Ariza connected on a career-best 10-for-14 3-point attempts en route to a season-high 32 points, but he also made the costly error of fouling Harden away from the ball before it was in-bounded to set up the Rockets' game-winning three-point possession. John Wall chipped in with 19 points and 14 assists for Washington (25-27), which has lost four of its last five games overall and five in a row in Houston.

QUOTABLE: "Jeremy [Lin] was going to act like he was going to come off [a screen], and he didn't come off. I just came off the top [of the key]. I needed some space, and I just got to the rim."
-- James Harden on his game-winner

THE STAT: The Rockets, who committed a season-high 26 turnovers, won for the first time since Dec. 27, 2006 when coughing up the ball on at least 25 occasions.

TURNING POINT: The Wizards erased 19-point deficit and were only four seconds from completing the victory after Wall nailed a pair of free throws to give Washington a 112-110 lead. On the Rockets' next possession, however, Ariza made the mistake of playing too physically and got tangled up with Harden as the ball was in-bounded. The officials originally called a personal foul on Ariza, but after review, they determined Ariza committed a foul away from the ball and awarded Houston one free-throw attempt plus possession. Harden knocked down the free throw to close the gap to 112-111. He then caught the ensuing in-bounds pass, drove toward the hoop, knifed between two defenders and laid the ball in with less than one second to play to secure the win.

QUOTABLE II: He was battling to get the ball, and I was trying to stop him from getting the ball. We both made contact, and it just so happened that they called a foul. ... I was pissed off to be honest, but that's a part of the game. It happens."
-- Trevor Ariza on his foul that started the final possession

HOT: Harden nearly surpassed his season average entering Wednesday of 23.6 points per game in only one half, pouring in 23 points on 6-for-10 shooting from the field and 9-for-9 shooting at the free-throw line to spearhead Houston's 18th 60-point first half of this season. The 6-foot-5 guard, who finished the contest 16-for-16 from the charity stripe, has scored at least 25 points in each of his last four meetings with the Wizards.

NOT: Washington's starting backcourt of Bradley Beal and Wall combined to shoot 32.6 percent (14-for-43) from the field. After Wednesday's 6-for-19 performance, Wall has connected on only 31.0 percent (13-for-42) of his shot attempts over the last three games.

BAD MOVE: Harden left a sizzling Ariza open on the perimeter throughout the evening while offering help defense to teammates, and Ariza punished him dearly. The 6-foot-8 wing buried 10 3-point attempts, including a 7-for-7 effort in the third quarter alone, to set the all-time record for treys by a Rockets opponent.

NOTABLE: The Rockets played without starting point guard Patrick Beverley, who sat out with an abdominal strain. Beverley said he re-aggravated the muscle he tore during Houston's season opener last October, but the 6-foot-1 guard expects to be back in the lineup when the Rockets return from the All-Star break Feb. 19 at the Lakers. ... Hall of Famer and Rockets legend Hakeem Olajuwon took in Wednesday's contest from a courtside seat. ... Houston last won seven straight Jan. 13-23, 2012. ... Howard has shot 70.8 percent (46-for-65) at the free-throw line over his last six games. ... The Rockets are 15-0 at home this season when they score at least 107 points. ... Washington has dropped 11 of its last 12 meetings with the Rockets in Houston. ... The Wizards fell to 3-10 on the road this season when they grab fewer rebounds than their opponent. ... Washington's 14 steals set Houston's opponent season high.

UP NEXT: For the Wizards: Tuesday vs. Toronto, Feb. 19 @ Atlanta, Feb. 22 vs. New Orleans. For the Rockets: Feb. 19 @ L.A. Lakers, Feb. 20 @ Golden State, Feb. 23 @ Phoenix.
