(AP) -- The Houston Rockets have defeated some of the NBA's top teams while rolling at home lately, and they'll look to take that strong play on the road as they embark on a three-game trip against more top competition.
The Rockets take on one of the two teams above them in the Western Conference when they open the trip Tuesday night against the struggling Oklahoma City Thunder.
Behind the shooting of James Harden, the Rockets extended their win streak to five Sunday night, rallying to beat Portland 118-113 in overtime. Harden scored 41 points, including 17 in the fourth quarter, as Houston came back from a 12-point deficit to force the extra period. The Rockets then held the Trail Blazers without a point for the final 2:15 of overtime to seal the win.
