Harden drops 41 in Rockets sixth straight victory on Thursday (AEDT)

Harden drops 41 in Rockets sixth straight victory on Thursday (AEDT)”

Houston's MVP candidate James Harden torched the Heat in Miami, pouring in 41 points in the Rockets' 109-101 victory. Paul finished with 24 points, seven rebounds and seven assists.

In Detroit, Blake Griffin scored 11 of his team-high 25 points after he re-entered the game in the 4th quarter to propel the Pistons to a 115-106 victory over the Brooklyn Nets.

LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers crashed to yet another humiliating defeat against the Orlando Magic Tuesday as James Harden scored his 15,000th career point to extend Houston's winning streak to five games.

Harden eclipsed the 40-point mark for the eighth time this season.

Seven players are averaging in double figures for Houston, they are Harden (31.3), Christ Paul (19.4), Eric Gordon (19.0), Clint Capela (14.3), Gerald Green (13.9), Trevor Ariza (12.1) and Ryan Anderson (10.0).

DeMar DeRozan had 15 points, with six assists and three rebounds.

Houston took a three-point lead into the final period, and it was then that the unsafe backcourt of Harden and Chris Paul took over.

The Rockets led by as many as 17 points in the first half at 53-36, but Dragic scored Miami's final 10 points of the half to help cut it to 61-57 lead at the break.

The Pistons won their 5th straight - and their 4th since Griffin arrived via a trade with the Los Angeles Lakers.

Jazz 92, Grizzlies 88 - At Memphis, Tenn.: Ricky Rubio carried Utah with a 29-point night, Rodney Hood added 18, and the Jazz scraped by Memphis.
