Smith and Harden lead Rockets over Mavericks 99-94

HOUSTON (AP) With Dwight Howard out Wednesday night against the Dallas Mavericks with an ankle injury, the Houston Rockets needed someone to step up.

What they got was a bevy of players chipping in to pick up the slack.

Josh Smith scored 18 points and James Harden added 17 as the Rockets used a balanced scoring effort to outlast the Mavericks for a 99-94 victory.
