RUSS, BEN BOUNCE SUNS

Rockets shake off shooting woes, knock off Suns 115-109

James Harden couldn't shoot straight, but he had a little help Saturday night.

Russell Westbrook played one of his smartest games with the Rockets, attacking the basket relentlessly in the fourth, as the Rockets knocked off the Suns 115-109 to improve to 15-7 on the year.

Russ had energy to spare in this one, finishing with 24 points, 14 rebounds and 11 assists. In the fourth, he drove hard to the hoop for clutch layups to help put the Suns away. He had 12-8-7 in the first half alone.

For the second straight game, Ben McLemore had his shooting stroke in order. He hit 5-9 from deep, finishing with 27 points and after dropping in 28 in Toronto.

Harden still finished with 34 points, but he was badly off, clanging 14 of his 17 three-point attempts.
