Howard returns, Rockets beat Pelicans 95-93

NEW ORLEANS (AP) Dwight Howard corralled a no-look pass from James Harden along the baseline and went up quickly for a forceful one-handed stuff.

That first-quarter highlight alone would have been a promising sign for a Rockets squad gearing up for the playoffs. Erasing a 17-point deficit on the road against a desperate Pelicans team made for an even more satisfying night.

Harden had 25 points and 10 assists, Howard had seven rebounds and a block on Anthony Davis in his return from a two-month absence, and Houston handed New Orleans its fourth straight loss with a 95-93 victory on Wednesday.
