Rockets and James Harden ride momentum into game vs. West's 1-seed Nuggets

Clint Capela scored a career-high 31 points Monday night to help the Houston Rockets earn their 12th win in 14 games.

Against the Western Conference-leading Denver Nuggets, Capela was only second-best to James Harden's 32 in the points column, propelling Houston to 125-113 win at home.

Houston (23-16) returned to Toyota Center after splitting a two-game road trip that saw it beat the defending champ Warriors.

Harden added 14 assists for a double-double. P.J. Tucker and Gerald Green each added 21 points.

Houston looks to make it 13 wins in 15 games when it hosts its second consecutive conference leader, the East's current No. 1 seed, the Milwaukee Bucks, on Wednesday.
