Harden gets his first win over LAC as a Rocket in 110-105 victory

The Rockets can not beat the Los Angeles Clippers. That's been the case for a few years now as the Rockets had lost six straight and 11 of their last 12 against this team going into Wednesday night's matchup. Things change. Corey Brewer and the bench led a 15-1 burst to start the fourth quarter (see full run) and the Rockets held on for a 110-105 victory over Chris Paul and the Clippers at the Toyota Center, improving to 39-18 on the year. Two big reasons they came away victorious -- they limited the turnovers (10) and tied a season-high with 17 made three-pointers. Brewer was a beast in the fourth, scoring 13 of his 20 in the final period. James Harden continued to struggle against this team, going just 4-13 from the floor, but he finished with 21 points and 10 dimes. Donatas Motiejunas connected on 7-11 shots for 18 points and 9 rebounds while Trevor Ariza added 17, hitting five triples. Terrence Jones as well added 14 points, 8 rebounds and 5 big blocks. Pablo Prigioni made some nice passes (including this gem) during the fourth quarter run and Josh Smith (9 points, 9 rebounds) had a couple of big blocks.
