Harden's career-high 51 lead Rockets over Kings 115-111

HOUSTON (AP) James Harden strengthened his case for the MVP award with a career-high 51 points, and the Houston Rockets squandered a huge early lead but held on for a 115-111 win over the Sacramento Kings on Wednesday night.

Houston was up by nine with about eight minutes left when Sacramento used a 9-2 spurt to get within 104-102 with 5 1/2 remaining. An 8-0 run by Harden, which he capped with a 3-point play, pushed the lead to 112-104.

Four straight points by the Kings cut the lead to four with less than a minute left, but they didn't score after that.
