MAKE IT 12 IN 13

Rockets use second half to pull away from Hawks 121-105

The Rockets shot 4-21 from three-point range in the first half and despite holding a six-point lead at intermission, it looked like it could be a rough night.

But the Rockets went crazy in the second half, hitting 15-26 from deep as they took their 12th win in their last 13 games, a 121-105 win over the Hawks in Atlanta.

James Harden, Clint Capela, Chris Paul and Danuel House Jr. all came to play.

Harden shook off a slow start to finish with 31 points, 10 assists and eight rebounds. Paul added 11 assists with just one turnover.

Clint Capela scored 20 of his 26 points in the first half as he feasted by rolling to the basket and taking feeds from Harden and Paul.

But Danuel House? This is the unexpected hero. Playing like he's the fourth star, House hit 6-11 from three-point range, adding 19 points off the bench.

In three games since returning from the G-League, House is averaging 17.0 points on 58.6% shooting and 54.5% from three to go with 4.3 boards. He's now hitting 41.8% from deep for the year, which leads the Rockets.
