Harden, Rockets beat Bobcats to snap 7-game skid
HOUSTON 100, CHARLOTTE 94

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- James Harden scored 29 points and hit all
10 of his free throws in the fourth quarter as the Houston
Rockets rallied to snap a seven-game losing streak, beating the
Charlotte Bobcats 100-94 Monday.



Kemba Walker scored a career-high 35 points for the Bobcats, who
set a franchise record with their 15th straight loss at home.
The longest home skid in NBA history is 19 straight by Dallas
during the 1993-94 season.



Harden made just 5 of 20 shots, but went 19 of 21 on free
throws. He was perfect from the line when the Rockets overcame a
seven-point deficit in the final period.



Marcus Morris had 21 points for the Rockets. Carlos Delfino
scored 16, including a 3-pointer from the right corner that put
Houston ahead for good at 96-94 with 1:54 left.



Harden has led the Rockets in scoring in 22 of the last 23
games. He also finished with seven assists and seven rebounds.



Houston couldn't find a flow on offense early and fell behind by
12 against the typically slow-starting Bobcats.



Harden was just 2 of 9 from the field in the first half and
missed several easy shots, including a pair of driving layups.
He also had three turnovers, including one where he inexplicably
lost control of his dribble with no defender near him. He twice
had his shot blocked.



Harden's shaky first half ended when his heave from half-court
as time expired sailed about 10 feet wide of the backboard.



Walker went 6 of 7 on 3s. He made all three tries in the first
half, helping the Bobcats take a 56-45 lead at the break.



Charlotte got it done on the defensive end, blocking six shots -
four by center Bismack Biyombo. He wound up with seven blocks,
four against Harden.



Walker made 3-pointers on back-to-back possessions that gave the
Bobcats an 81-74 lead entering the fourth quarter.



But as has been the problem most of the season, Charlotte had
trouble closing out an opponent, shooting just 4 of 19 in the
fourth quarter and scoring just 13 points.



While the Bobcats struggled to knock down jumpers, Harden took
the ball to the rim and drew fouls. He scored 12 points in the
fourth quarter, all but two from the line.



Ramon Sessions had 19 points for the Bobcats and Hakim Warrick
chipped in with 10.
