It was almost one of those classic trap games after coming off a big win against the Miami Heat the night before, but the Houston Rockets were able to come back from a 48-41 halftime deficit to rally for a 101-89 win.

James Harden scored 25 of his 31 points in the 2nd half to lead the Rockets while adding 6 assists, and Dwight Howard scored 19 points and grabbed 14 rebounds in his return to Orlando. Chandler Parsons finished with 19 points, 7 assists, and 6 rebounds, and Terrence Jones recorded his 16th double-double of the season with 17 points and 10 rebounds.

The Rockets were able to overcome 22 turnovers, but dominated down low by outrebounding the Magic 49-34 and holding the edge in points in the paint 58-26.
