The Houston Rockets rallied furiously in the 3rd quarter after falling behind the Toronto Raptors by 20 points, before being on the short end of a 107-103 score.

Playing without Dwight Howard and Patrick Beverley once again, James Harden scored 26 points and grabbed 4 rebounds, while Chandler Parsons finished with 20 points and 7 rebounds.

Terrence Jones, who missed Tuesday’s game against the Brooklyn Nets with the flu, started the game, but was pulled out after 10 minutes. Jeremy Lin scored 16 points and dished out 7 assists, and Donatas Motiejunas added 13 points off the bench.

Playing on the second night of a back-to-back, the Rockets looked dead midway through the 3rd quarter, as the Raptors took a 82-62 lead. But a quick rally lead by Lin, Isaiah Canaan, and Omri Casspi sparked a 29-10 run for the Rockets to cut the lead down to 1. That would be the closest the Rockets would get.
