Houston started the fourth quarter on a 13-2 run to extend a one-point lead to 92-80 with about 9 minutes remaining. Harden and Jason Terry made 3-pointers in that stretch, but it was Corey Brewer who wowed the crowd when he made a layup as he was being pulled down from behind by James Johnson and then finished the three-point play.

Eventually, the Rockets snapped a three-game skid with a 112-109 win over the Toronto Raptors on Friday night.
