HOUSTON — James Harden recorded a triple-double with 35 points, 11 rebounds and 13 assists to help the Houston Rockets beat the Cleveland Cavaliers 117-113 on Thursday night.

Harden also had five steals and a block as Houston extended its winning streak to four.

LeBron James had 33 points for the Cavaliers, and Jeff Green added 27.

Houston led 111-98 after a 3-pointer by P.J. Tucker, but the Cavaliers used a 13-1 run to make it 112-111 with 1:30 left.

Harden missed a layup but grabbed a rebound and threw an alley-oop to Clint Capela, who finished for Houston’s first basket since Tucker’s 3. He was fouled on the play and made the free throw.

James hit a layup on the other end, but Capela made another basket on the rebound of a miss by Harden to put Houston back up by 4 with 10.7 seconds left.

WIZARDS 111, LAKERS 95: John Wall scored 23 points and Bradley Beal added 22 as Washington won at home.

Lakers point guard Lonzo Ball had 10 points, eight rebounds and eight assists, but the No. 2 overall draft pick was 3 of 12 from the field.

Washington’s Otto Porter Jr. finished with 20 points and 11 rebounds, while Markieff Morris scored 16 points on 6-of-7 shooting, including a pair of 3s to open the third quarter.

Coming off a home loss in which they never led against the NBA-worst Dallas Mavericks, the Wizards went up by as many as 21 against the Lakers.

The Lakers pulled to within 93-84 on Julius Randle’s two-handed slam with about eight minutes left, but a 3 by Beal soon built the advantage back to 15.

RAPTORS 122, PELICANS 118: DeMar DeRozan scored 33 points, Serge Ibaka had 19 and Toronto beat visiting for the fifth straight time.

Kyle Lowry scored six of his 18 points in the fourth quarter and Jonas Valanciunas grabbed a game-high 13 rebounds as the Raptors won for the 13th time in 16 meetings with New Orleans.

Jrue Holiday had a season-high 34 points and 11 assists, and DeMarcus Cousins added 20 points and 15 rebounds for the Pelicans in the finale of a four-game road trip. New Orleans had won a season-best three straight.

The Raptors made a season-high 16 3-pointers, including four by Lowry. His final 3 of the game with 3:21 remaining put Toronto ahead for good, 109-107.
