10-GAME WIN STREAK

Rockets low on gas but knock off Kings to head to the break on a roll

The Rockets looked like a team that needed a break and they'll get it, but they have to be thrilled with where they are. After knocking off the Sacramento Kings 100-91 at home Wednesday night, the Rockets take a 10-game winning streak and a franchise-best 44-13 record into the All-Star break. James Harden scored 28 points to go with nine rebounds and nine assists to lead the way. Joe Johnson saw his first action as a Houston Rocket, struggling with his shot (2-9 from the field) but seeming to fit in.

"Joe tonight, it seemed like he's been with us," said Chris Paul, who noted that Johnson played 31 minutes without a single practice with the team.

Paul was brilliant in the second quarter, scoring 17 of his 19 points, but was held scoreless in the second half and left early with a minor hand injury. "I banged my hand at some point, but I'm alright," said Paul.
