Rockets fall to Grizzlies despite James Harden's 41 points

MEMPHIS — When James Harden scores 40 points, good things normally happen for the Rockets.

He had 41 on Tuesday at Memphis but it wasn’t nearly enough as the Grizzlies showed some offense of their own to knock off Houston, 121-110.

It was just the second loss for the Rockets in 16 games this season when Harden hits the 40-point mark.

Harden, who has 40 points in his last five games against Memphis, had 17 in the first quarter, but the Grizzlies showed they could score quickly, too, with a 15-2 run in just over two minutes to start the second.
