HOUSTON -- The Houston Rockets havent had a drop-off offensively despite top scorer James Harden being sidelined with a sore foot for the last three games. Houstons role players have stepped up in each game to make up for his lost points. On Wednesday night it was Francisco Garcia and Aaron Brooks who came through, each scoring 21 points to help the Rockets cruise to their third straight win, 113-84 over the Atlanta Hawks. The 29-point win was their largest of the season. "Its just the way it is," Brooks said. "We are a talented team. A lot of guys are working out and have a lot of energy that are ready to play." Garcias 21 points were a season-high and Brooks has been great in two of the three games with Harden out, scoring 26 points in the first before adding 21 on Wednesday. "Weve got good chemistry going right now," Garcia said. Houston didnt trail for its fourth straight home game and again used a balanced scoring attack with Harden out. "Their bench was the difference in the game," Atlanta coach Mike Budenholzer said after Houstons reserves outscored his 67-32. "They have some depth and they have a good team. All those guys came in and contributed." The Rockets went up by 12 on John Jenkins 3-pointer early in the fourth quarter. Then Brooks outscored the Hawks 8-4 over the next 1 1/2 minutes to extend Houstons lead to 90-74. "The fourth quarter we made a strong effort to come out the first three minutes and kind of put it away a little bit and thats what we did," Brooks said. Houston shot almost 52 per cent from 3-point range with Brooks and Garcia combining to make seven of Houstons 14 3-pointers. Paul Millsap had 16 points for Atlanta and Cartier Martin, who grew up in Houston, started in place of an injured Kyle Korver and had 14. Chandler Parsons and Terrence Jones had 14 points each and Dwight Howard had 11 points and eight rebounds for Houston which improved to 11-5. Al Horford scored 14 points and had eight rebounds as Atlanta dropped its third straight game. The Rockets were up 77-67 entering the fourth quarter. "I think for three quarters we put ourselves in some positions where we had some opportunities and battled," Budenholzer said. "In the fourth quarter we werent able to find a way to sustain that effort and keep it close." Harden was out with a sore left foot. Jeremy Lin started for Harden, who is averaging 24.2 points, 4.8 rebounds and 5.4 assists. But Lin sustained a right knee bruise and left the game with about eight minutes left in the first quarter and did not return. Coach Kevin McHale said X-rays were negative and he would know more about his status for Fridays game on Thursday. Houston led by 11 points with about eight minutes left in the third quarter before Atlanta used an 8-2 run to get to 65-60. Millsap had four points in that span and Martin capped it with a jump shot. The Rockets scored the next five points to push their lead to 70-60 with about four minutes remaining in the third. Along with Korver (rib contusion), the Hawks were also without Shelvin Mack (sprained left ankle) and Lou Williams (right knee rehabilitation) who did not travel to Houston. Korver was injured on Tuesday night after extending his streak of consecutive games with a 3-pointer to 88. He needs one more to break the NBA record set by Dana Barros from 1994-96. Budenholzer didnt have any details on Korvers injury and said he isnt sure how long hell be out. Houston jumped out to a 20-9 lead thanks to nine early points from Jones and was up 56-45 at halftime. NOTES: Parsons has scored in double figures in 11 straight games. ...

Ghoulam has put pen to paper on a four and a half year deal, tying him to Napoli until 2018.

This time the Diamondbacks were the ones being beaten. Adam LaRoche hit a game-winning solo home run with two outs in the 11th inning to help the Nationals beat the Diamondbacks 5-4 Monday night for their seventh straight win. It was the third walk-off win in as many days for NL-East leading Washington, the first two coming against the Pirates. "They dont come around very often thats for sure," Williams said, "but (we) just keep fighting.which is a great trait to have." LaRoche sent a 3-1 pitch from Will Harris (0-3) off the wall in the back of the Nationals bullpen and was mobbed by his teammates at home plate. "I got every bit of it, I did," LaRoche said. Just a crazy few days. I dont know how weve gotten these walk off situations the last few days, but we have and have been able to grind back." It was LaRoches first career walk-off homer. "Nice to get my first one, it took me long enough," the 34-year-old said. Winning pitcher Craig Stammen (3-4) pitched out of a bases-loaded, no outs jam in the top of the inning. "We missed our opportunity, me striking out instead of putting the ball in play," said Didi Gregorius, who made the second out against Stammen. Arizona tied it 4-4 when David Peralta led off the ninth with a solo homer off Tyler Clippard. Washington trailed 3-2 when Denard Span doubled with one-out in the eighth against Brad Ziegler and Anthony Rendon followed with a triple to tie it. Jayson Werth then scored Rendon with a sacrifice fly. Miguel Montero had three hits for Arizona, and rookie Ender Inciarte extended his hitting streak to 18 games. Arizona had taken the lead in the top of the eighth. Jake Lamb drew a lead-off walk off Jordan Zimmermann, and Gregorius sent a 3-2 fastball into the Nationals bullpen for his fifth home run. Wilson Ramos had given Washington a 2-1 lead with a twwo-run homer off Arizona starter Vidal Nuno in the seventh.dddddddddddd Nuno, winless in eight starts with the Diamondbacks, pitched well, allowing two runs and five hits over seven innings. Zimmermann went seven-plus innings, allowing three runs on four hits. His three walks were a season-high. He faced the minimum through four innings thanks to a pair of double plays. In the fifth however, the first two Diamondbacks reached base via a walk and a single. Manager Kirk Gibson had No. 6 hitter Jordan Pacheco bunt the runners over, and Lambs sacrifice fly made it 1-0. TRAINERS ROOM Diamondbacks: SS Chris Owings, on this disabled list with a strained left shoulder, began a rehab assignment Sunday with the teams Arizona Rookie League affiliate, going 2 for 3.
