With Harden struggling, Jones, Ariza step up to fuel 102-98 win over Nets

The Houston Rockets, getting outplayed almost all night, had no business winning this one... but somehow, they found a way. The Rockets closed the final 1:47 of the game on a 12-3 run to beat the Brooklyn Nets 102-98 at the Toyota Center, improving to 40-18 on the year. Terrence Jones was terrific, finishing with 26 points on 11-16 shooting and 12 rebounds while Trevor Ariza, for the second straight game, shot straight from deep as he hit 5-9 from beyond the arc for 20 points. James Harden struggled shooting most of the night (4-15 from the field), but he hit a huge stepback 15-footer with 27 seconds left that gave the Rockets a three-point lead.
