MINNEAPOLIS — Even down double digits in the closing minutes, James Harden never gave up hope in his Houston Rockets.
With each win, the Rockets are making believers out of the rest of the NBA as well.
Harden scored 10 of his 28 points in overtime and Houston rallied from 12 points down with just over two minutes to play to win its 10th straight game, 111-109 over the Minnesota Timberwolves on Saturday night.
Harden also had 13 assists and nine rebounds for the Rockets, who have not lost since Nov. 29. Ryan Anderson scored 28 points, and Eric Gordon finished with 20.
Houston trailed 93-81 with 2:04 to play, and still Harden told Anderson they were going to win. Anderson and Trevor Ariza hit two 3-pointers each in a 14-2 run.
