MINNEAPOLIS – James Harden was too much for the Minnesota Timberwolves Wednesday night, scoring 30 points and leading the surging Houston Rockets past the Wolves 87-84.

“When he’s playing downhill on you, he’s just a monster at that. He’s coming at you,” Houston coach (and former Wolves coach) Kevin McHale told the Associated Press after the game about Harden’s play.

Star guard Jeremy Linn had just 8 points and 7 turnovers for Houston, but Omer Asik scored 9 with 17 rebounds to contribute.

Minnesota’s Kevin Love has just 7 points and 12 rebounds to go with 5 turnovers. Jose Barea led the Wolves with 18 points.

Minnesota drops to 13-13 on the season.

The Wolves next face Phoenix at home on Saturday.
