With his free throw after that last-minute foul, Harden has six games with go-ahead points in final 90 seconds of Rockets wins this season.

Rockets make Nets pay for key mistake down the stretch in Friday's win blog.chron.com/ultimaterocket…

Lenn Robbins

Gritty effort #Nets comes up short. 102-98L. Led 95-90 w 2:34 left.Tough one. Nets missed 4 straight shots as #Rockets went on an 8-0 run

Jay King

The Rockets just closed out the Nets. So yeah, the Celtics are tied for eighth place in the East.

Chris Forsberg

With Brooklyn loss to Rockets, we essentially have a four-car pileup (Celtics, Nets, Hornets, Pacers) for 8th seed in East.

David Hardisty

FINAL: Rockets 102, Nets 98. GREAT comeback as late 8-0 Rocket run changed the gm. TJones (26p-12r), Ariza (20p) were huge. Harden 15-12-5.

Jenny Dial Creech

Terrence Jones at the line for the Rockets - made both.

Howard Chen

#Rockets catch a slight break. Joe Johnson's foot on the line for the attempted 3 as he got fouled. So, 2 FT's instead of 3. Rockets up 3.

Jonathan Feigen

Josh Smith fouls Joe Johnson while going up for a 3. Johnson's left foot, however, toed the line. Lucky break for Rockets.

Jonathan Feigen

Nets use final time out w/ Terry free throws giving Rockets a 3-point lead, 14.7 seconds left. Rockets up 100-97 for Lawler's Law believers.

Jenny Dial Creech

With 14.7 seconds left to play, #Rockets up on #Nets 100-97. Brooklyn has the ball.

David Hardisty

Jason Terry hits two clutch free throws. 100-97 Rockets, 14.7 ticks left. Timeout Brooklyn.

David Hardisty

In the last 80 seconds, the Rockets have gone on an 8-0 run to take a 3-point lead.

Jenny Dial Creech

James Harden is doing James Harden-y things. Rockets up 98-95 with 27 seconds to play. Nets have the ball.

Jonathan Feigen

Harden pull up jumper on the rookie. He's 4 of 15, but nails his shot with 27 seconds left for three-point Rockets lead, their largest.

Howard Chen

#Beard coming through when it matters most. #Rockets up 98-95 with 27 seconds left.

Rod Boone

The Beard might have just won The Game with a trademark step back jumper over Markel. #Rockets lead 98-95 with 27 seconds left.

David Hardisty

Poor, poor Markel Brown. Harden hits the absurd 15-foot stepback on him and the Rockets now lead 98-95, 27 sec left.

Jonathan Feigen

Nets commit an accidental hack-a-Harden. He gets a free throw for lead. Rockets ball.

Jonathan Feigen

Rockets finally get rebound. It took Harden diving on loose ball, calling time out, but Nets at last took just 1 shot. Game tied, 49.1 left.

Jenny Dial Creech

Rockets get another stop- After a missed shot by Brooklyn, Harden dove to recover the ball and got the timeout.

Jenny Dial Creech

A 3-pointer by Pat Beverley ties it up. #Nets 95, #Rockets 95 with 1:11 to play. Brooklyn ball.

Howard Chen

On a night where Harden's scoring output is down, the contributions of TJones & Ariza have been esp important to keep #Rockets in this.

Jenny Dial Creech

These fourth quarters this week have been intense. Tonight no different. Rockets down 93-89 with 2:56 to play.
