Harden scores 28, Rockets beat Pelicans 113-90

NEW ORLEANS (AP) Houston's James Harden dribbled along the perimeter for about 20 seconds while Pelicans guard Elfrid Payton hounded him, even briefly poking the ball away. But as the shot clock wound down, Harden suddenly rose for a 3-pointer and nailed it, eliciting an elongated "ooh" from the New Orleans crowd.

"We've gotten used to it," Rockets guard Chris Paul said. "Elfrid is one of my closest friends who I know is an unbelievable competitor and a great defender. But there ain't too much you can do about it."

Harden scored 28 points in a little less than 29 minutes, and the Rockets downed the New Orleans Pelicans 113-90 on Sunday night for their 14th victory in 16 games.
