NBA roundup: Rockets rout Kings for eighth win in row

NBA roundup: Rockets rout Kings for eighth win in row

James Harden had a triple-double — 15 points, 14 assists and 11 rebounds — in just three quarters to lead the Houston Rockets to their eighth straight win, 132-98, over the visiting Sacramento Kings on Wednesday night. 

Houston’s winning streak is the longest current one in the NBA and the team’s longest since 2014. 

It was Harden’s fifth triple-double this season and the 14th of his career, which ties him with Hakeem Olajuwon for most in franchise history. 

The Kings played without starters Rudy Gay (hip flexor strain), Ben McLemore (left quadriceps contusion) and DeMarcus Cousins (rest). Garrett Temple scored 20 points for Sacramento.
