Houston Rockets go 12-1 in November with win over Indiana Pacers

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- A slow start by James Harden on Wednesday night didn't necessarily spell doom for the Houston Rockets.

The team captain scored 29 points, including an uncharacteristic 12 in the first half, to propel Houston to a 118-97 win over the Indiana Pacers.

Six Rockets scored in double figures, including Chris Paul who scored 13 points to go along with seven rebounds and six assists.

Clint Capela scored 22 points and grabbed 13 rebounds.

With the win, Houston (17-4) caps off a successful month of November, with a 12-1 record. The lone loss came at home against the Toronto Raptors on Nov. 14.

Harden's point total Wednesday wasn't enough to keep his 35-point-per-game average in November. Had he scored enough on Wednesday, he would have joined Oscar Robertson and Tiny Archibald as the only players in NBA history to average at least 35 points and 10 assists for an entire month.

Houston flies off to Los Angeles to face the Lakers on Sunday to kick off a three-game road trip.

As of this game, the Rockets maintain their top standing in the Western Conference.
