HOUSTON (AP) - James Harden had 28 points and the Houston Rockets rebounded from their worst loss of the season with a 123-104 win over the Atlanta Hawks on Monday night.

The Rockets were coming off a 30-point defeat by Oklahoma City and had allowed at least 120 points in their last two games - both losses.

On Monday night they used a 16-0 run in the second quarter to build a big lead and hold on for the win.

Lou Williams had 21 points to lead the Hawks, who saw a four game winning streak snapped with the loss.

Houston was up by 15 points in the fourth quarter before Atlanta used a 12-2 run to cut the lead to 102-97 with about five minutes remaining. Carlos Delfino scored five quick points after that, before a 3-point play by Harden extended Houston's lead to 110-97 less than a minute and a half later.
