Kings-Rockets Preview

(AP) -- James Harden has elevated his play to help the Houston Rockets scrape together wins in Dwight Howard's absence. Omri Casspi did the same in place of Rudy Gay for the Sacramento Kings.

Both might need big performances Wednesday night in Houston with their respective teammates likely to sit out again.

Harden scored 12 of his 36 points in the final 4:46 and matched a career high with seven 3-pointers in Monday's 91-86 home win over New York. Harden scored a season-low six on 1-of-8 shooting in a Nov. 17 loss at Memphis, but has since averaged 30.7 points on 51.0 percent shooting in three games - all of which have been without Howard due to a strained right knee.
