HOUSTON, Tex. – Chandler Parsons scored a season-high 31 points and grabbed 10 rebounds and seven assists as the Houston Rockets breezed past the Portland Trail Blazers 126-113 on Monday.

Dwight Howard finished with 24 points and 12 rebounds and James Harden had 22 points, six rebounds and five assists for the Rockets, who have won five of their last six games.

Patrick Beverly, who sat out 14 games with a broken hand, returned Monday to score 17 points in just under 29 minutes of playing time.

LaMarcus Aldridge had 27 points and 20 rebounds, Damian Lillard scored 24 points and Wesley Matthews finished with 18 for the Trail Blazers, who had a five-game win streak snapped.

Portland pulled within 11 points with six minutes left in the fourth, but the Rockets scored seven straight to put the game out of reach. The surge was highlighted by Howard’s alley-oop dunk which was set up by Harden.

The Blazers never got within 10 points the rest of the way. – Rappler.com
