NEW ORLEANS (AP) James Harden's craftiness in the clutch ignited Houston's offense - as well as Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry's temper.

Harden had 32 points and 11 rebounds, and the Rockets won for the 21st time in 22 games, beating New Orleans 107-101 on Saturday night.

Harden's highlights included his usual array of explosive drives and pull-up jumpers, including a 27-foot, straight-on 3 that put the Rockets up by nine with 1:31 left. He also drew a foul on a missed 3-pointer in which he threw his arms forward toward Pelicans guard Jrue Holiday as he went up for the shot with 5:39 left.
