HOUSTON (AP) - James Harden had 33 points and 13 assists and the Houston Rockets rallied for a 111-104 win over the New Orleans Pelicans on Saturday night to maintain their spot in the Western Conference standings with the postseason just days away.

The Rockets had lost two in a row and needed the win to stay ahead of Portland in fourth place in the West.

Houston got a boost from the return of Dwight Howard and Patrick Beverley, who had both missed the last eight games with injuries. Beverley scored 20 points and Howard had 13.

Luke Babbitt, who was signed by the Pelicans in February after playing 18 games in Russia this season, had a career-high 24 points as New Orleans dropped its eighth straight. Austin Rivers had a season-high 20 points with 10 rebounds and six assists, and Anthony Morrow also had 20 points.
