HOUSTON (AP) - James Harden sank an off-balance jumper with 4.5 seconds left to lift the Houston Rockets to a 96-95 win over the San Antonio Spurs on Sunday night.
Harden scored 18 of his 29 points in the second half as the Rockets rallied from three down in the final minute to snap a four-game losing streak to their state rivals.
Tony Parker scored 23 points, including 10 in a row to put San Antonio ahead with just under 2 minutes left. The Spurs led 95-94 when Harden got the ball from Omer Asik, drove to the free throw line and hit the winning jumper with Tim Duncan in front of him and Kawhi Leonard behind him.
Duncan missed a jumper from the wing just before the buzzer sounded.
