HOUSTON, Texas (AP) -- James Harden scored 35 points and his layup with 0.7 seconds remaining lifted the Houston Rockets to a 113-112 win over the Washington Wizards on Wednesday night.

The victory sends Houston into the All-Star break with a season-best seven-game winning streak.

John Wall gave Washington the lead with a pair of free throws with 4 seconds left. Trevor Ariza fouled out when he pushed Harden to the ground on the ensuing inbounds pass. It was ruled a foul away from the play, giving Houston one free throw and possession.

Harden, who was 16 for 16 at the line, made the free throw before grabbing a pass from Chandler Parsons and driving into the lane for the winning shot.

The Wizards had a chance to win at the end, but Kevin Seraphin's shot clanged off the rim.

Ariza had a season-high 32 points with a career-high 10 3-pointers to lead the Wizards.
