ROCKETS HUMBLE LAKERS

Gordon, Harden lead Rockets at home in 134-95 laugher over Lakers

Eric Gordon is on fire. The Rockets super-sub exploded for 26 points in just 24 minutes, hitting eight threes, as the Rockets completely picked apart the Lakers Wednesday night in a 134-95 rout at Toyota Center. The win improves the Rockets to 15-7 on the year. Gordon was 9-13 from the field, including the 8-12 from long distance. He has now hit four or more three-pointers in seven straight games. James Harden was hitting shots as well, going 8-14 from the field for 25 points, eight assists and six rebounds. He added four threes on the night. Seven Rockets scored in double figures, including Patrick Beverley, who flirted with a triple-double (10 points, 12 assists, seven rebounds). Ryan Anderson, Clint Capela and Sam Dekker each added 12 points.
