Houston Rockets 120 Philadelphia 76ers 98-Recap

 

James Harden recorded his 2nd career triple-double, finishing with 26 points, 10 rebounds, and 10 assists in 3 quarters of play as the Houston Rockets cruised to a 120-98 win over the Philadelphia 76ers for their 5th straight win.

The loss for the Sixers marks their 26th consecutive loss, tying the 2010-2011 Cleveland Cavaliers for the longest losing streak in NBA history.

Patrick Beverley left the game early in the 2nd quarter after suffering a knee sprain, but plenty of Rockets contributed to the win. Terrence Jones scored 20 points and grabbed 7 boards, Dwight Howard recorded his 46th double-double of the season with 17 points and 13 rebounds in 26 minutes.

Chandler Parsons added 16 points, 5 rebounds, and 7 assists. Jeremy Lin scored 13 points and dished out 7 assists off the bench.

The only bright side for the Sixers came at the hands of former Rocket James Anderson, who scored 30 points and knocked down 6 of 11 3-point shots.
