HOUSTON (AP) — Jalen Green scored 27 points and Kevin Porter Jr. added 24 to lead the Houston Rockets to a 132-123 double-overtime victory over the Philadelphia 76ers as James Harden struggled through his return from injury. Harden had 21 points but shot 4 for 19 from the field in his first game since Nov. 2.

But Harden didn’t seem to be limited much, and played 39 minutes.
