Rockets lose Swiss big man Capela for 4-6 weeks

Back-to-back games with 50-plus points were within reach if he had held off the front end of it, which would be something in itself, and he'd be on a streak of four straight games with more than 40 points heading into Wednesday night against the Brooklyn Nets.

Beating the Rockets will require slowing down reigning league MVP James Harden, who enters Monday's game having matched Kobe Bryant with 16 consecutive games of scoring at least 30 points. "Wow", Harden said with a smile before getting serious again.

House became a contributor in the Rockets' rotation and has started 12 games this season.

The opening half outburst set a new franchise record for the most points scored in the first half by a Houston Rockets player.

Houston teammate Austin Rivers, who joined the Rockets just three weeks ago, marveled at Harden's ability to not let Sunday's struggles spill over into Monday's performance.

Kanter has also received death threats for his political stance and is obviously concerned about his well being. The Istanbul prosecutors' office was not immediately available to comment on the report on Wednesday.


Harden made 15 of 17 free throws and had nine rebounds, two assists and two steals. "I'm telling you right now, if another player went 1 for 17 they would have come in tonight a little [.] messed up". He also has scored in double figures six straight games, which is the longest of his season and National Basketball Association career.

"The win was important", he was quoted as saying by ESPN.

It was also the 600th career coaching win for Mike D'Antoni, making him the 25th coach in league history to achieve that feat. The Grizzlies are a combined 1-4 against those teams this season, with the lone victory coming on the road at Milwaukee.
