SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — James Harden and the Houston Rockets are finding their rhythm at the right time.
Looks as if some help is on the way, too.
Harden made eight 3-pointers and scored 36 points, helping Houston beat the Sacramento Kings 127-101 on Wednesday night.
"We played very, very well," Harden said. "We're kind of catching a momentum and it feels pretty good. It's even more exciting once we get our full roster back."
HOUSTON (AP) — James Harden scored 32 points, Clint Capela added a career-high 31 and the Houston Rockets beat the Denver Nuggets 125-113 on Monday night.
P.J. Tucker set a career best with seven 3-pointers and scored a season-high 21 points to help Houston win for the 12th time in 14 games. Capela had 19 points by halftime as Harden fed him again and again when Denver double-teamed him behind the 3-point line.
SAN ANTONIO (AP) — The Houston Rockets are starting to feel whole, and they demonstrated that by taking apart the San Antonio Spurs.
Clint Capela had 27 points and 12 rebounds, James Harden had 23 points and 10 assists and Houston handed San Antonio its second straight lopsided defeat, 136-105 on Friday night.
WASHINGTON (AP) — Houston Rockets guard Chris Paul was out for Monday night's game against the Washington Wizards with a sore left leg.
It's the second consecutive game Paul has missed. He sat out Saturday's game in Cleveland after playing 37 minutes in an overtime win in Detroit the night before. The Rockets said he was being rested against the Cavaliers.
"We've just got to make sure Chris is 100 percent well from his strained hammy," Houston coach Mike D'Antoni said.
HOUSTON (AP) — Gerald Green was at a crossroads.
Released by Milwaukee in training camp, the career journeyman couldn't find another NBA team that wanted him.
He contemplated playing internationally and in the G League, but no one had any use for the over-30 player with almost a decade of NBA experience.
"I was honestly contemplating retirement," he told The Associated Press. "A lot of people don't know that, but I was done."
HOUSTON (AP) — James Harden predicted Chris Paul would "come back and drop 30" after not playing his best in Houston's playoff opener.
Paul had 27 points and Gerald Green came off the bench to score a playoff career-high 21 as the Rockets used a huge second quarter to cruise to a 102-82 win over the Minnesota Timberwolves on Wednesday night that gave them a 2-0 lead in the first-round playoff series.
HOUSTON (AP) — Gerald Green was born and raised in Houston and represents the city to the fullest, from the large block letters that spell out the name of the city on his left forearm to the intricate braids in his hair that form the 'H' from the Houston Astros logo.
NEW YORK (AP) — The NBA has fined Gerald Green of the Houston Rockets $25,000 for shoving an opponent and Marcus Morris of the Boston Celtics $15,000 for verbally abusing an official.
The punishments were announced Tuesday by Kiki VanDeWeghe, the league's executive vice president for basketball operations.
BOSTON (AP) — The Houston Rockets have signed veteran swingman Gerald Green.
General manager Daryl Morey announced the signing Thursday a few hours before the Rockets played at Boston, where Green played 47 games last season. Green, 31, was wearing No. 14 on the bench for the Rockets, who were without point guard Chris Paul for the third straight game with a left abductor strain.
WASHINGTON (AP) — Borrowing a page from their opponent's style playbook, the Boston Celtics showed up wearing black clothes ahead of Game 6 of their playoff series against the Washington Wizards.
The Celtics' attire Friday night could be seen as a nod to what the Wizards did before a regular-season matchup in January that became known as the "Funeral Game." Washington's players dressed all in black, then beat Boston.
CHICAGO (AP) — The Boston Celtics are shuffling their lineup, with veteran Gerald Green starting over Amir Johnson against the Chicago Bulls in Game 3 of their first-round series.
Coach Brad Stevens had hinted at lineup changes in recent days. He says he was looking for more shooting and athleticism after the Celtics dropped the first two games at home, so he went with the 6-foot-7 Green over the 6-9 Johnson.
BOSTON (AP) — Isaiah Thomas was able to watch from the bench while the Celtics finished off the Milwaukee Bucks in the regular-season finale.
The Boston star got a little bit of rest — and the No. 1 seed he wanted, too.
"It's very special. For me it is," Thomas said after scoring 13 points with eight assists in a 112-94 victory over the resting Bucks on Wednesday night. "I've never been a No. 1 seed. I'm excited now. But once you get the playoffs, the seedings go out the window."
CHICAGO (AP) — Boston guard Avery Bradley and rookie forward Jaylen Brown have been ruled out for the Celtics' final game before the All-Star break due to injuries.
Gerald Green was questionable for Thursday night's game at Chicago, but he entered in the first quarter. He bruised his left heel during Wednesday night's 116-108 victory against Philadelphia.
Bradley hasn't played in a month because of a sore right Achilles. He is averaging 17.7 points in 36 games this season.
BOSTON (AP) — Marcus Smart made the most of his opportunity in Avery Bradley's absence.
With Bradley sidelined by a strained Achilles tendon, Smart scored a season-high 22 points to help the Boston Celtics to a 117-108 victory over the New Orleans Pelicans on Saturday.
"(My mentality was) just to bring it early," said Smart, who scored nine of his 15 first-half points in the opening quarter. "Avery Bradley was out, it's a tough game."
