Chris Paul scored a season-high 32 points, and the Houston Rockets opened a five-game road trip by rallying from a 14-point deficit to record a 119-111 victory over the Brooklyn Nets on Friday night.
Paul helped the Rockets snap a four-game skid and avoid their first 1-6 start since 2010-11 by shooting 13-for-27 from the field. Paul also made five 3-pointers, including two that beat the buzzer in the second and third quarters. Carmelo Anthony drained six threes and scored 28 points in 31 minutes off the bench.
The Rockets played their third straight game without James Harden (strained left hamstring). Harden worked out on the court before the opening tip, and coach Mike D'Antoni said he would probably play Saturday in Chicago.
Caris LeVert scored a career-high 29 points for the Nets, who lost for the fourth time in five games. Joe Harris added 18 while Spencer Dinwiddie contributed 12.
Warriors 116, Timberwolves 99
