By krstking2 on May 21, 2014 03:28 AM
HOUSTON -- James Harden had 32 points and Chandler Parsons scored eight points in overtime to lift the Houston Rockets to a 130-125 victory over the Denver Nuggets on Sunday night. nfl jerseys china wholesale . Denver led by one in overtime when Houston made three consecutive 3-pointers to make it 130-122 with less than two minutes left. Parsons made the last two and high-fived with fans on the front row as he ran down the court after sinking the second one. Houston had a franchise-record, 47-point second quarter, but Denver overcame a 17-point halftime deficit to tie it at 88 entering the fourth period. The Rockets then trailed by eight late in regulation before using a 9-1 run, capped by a 3-pointer by Harden under heavy pressure from Randy Foye, to tie it at 117 with 7.1 seconds remaining. Foye made one of two free throws for Denver before Hardens shot. Foye had a chance to win it in regulation, but his jump shot was short. Evan Fournier scored 26 points and Aaron Brooks added 24 points and 15 assists against his former team. Brooks, who was traded to Denver on Feb. 20 for Jordan Hamilton, started for Ty Lawson, who was out with a left ankle sprain. The game was still tied with about nine minutes to go when the Nuggets scored 11 straight points to make it 106-95 midway through the quarter. Fournier made two 3-pointers in that span and Brooks had one. Jeremy Lin scored 19 points, Omer Asik had a season-high 18 points and tied a career best with 23 rebounds, and Parsons finished with 15 points. Quincy Miller scored a career-high 19 for the Nuggets and Kenneth Faried added 16 points with 13 rebounds. The Rockets, who have already clinched a playoff spot, were playing without Dwight Howard and Patrick Beverley, who both missed their fifth straight games. Howard has missed eight games recently because of a left ankle strain and Beverley is out indefinitely with a torn meniscus in his right knee. The game was tied at 88 entering the fourth quarter. Houston was ahead by 15 when Denver took over, using a 13-2 spurt to get within 79-75 with four minutes left in the third. Miller led the Nuggets in that span, scoring the first seven points of that run. Houston missed three shots and had three turnovers as Denver cut into the lead. A 14-4 run by the Rockets to start the second quarter gave them a 36-31 lead. Omri Casspi and Isaiah Canaan both made 3-pointers in that stretch. Brooks made a layup after that before Casspi hit another 3-pointer to make it 39-33 with about eight minutes left in the first half. The Nuggets got within a basket after a jump shot by Brooks about 2 1/2 minutes later. But Houston responded with a 9-2 run, powered by five points from Harden, to extend the lead to 52-44. Lin had seven points in the last 42 seconds of the first half, including a 3-pointer at the buzzer, to push Houstons lead to 69-52 at halftime.

Pellegrini saw his star striker Sergio Aguero boss the game from the front, using his speed and skill to fire home two goals on the way to a 4-1 victory for the home side. Midfielders Yaya Toure and Samir Nasri also provided goals for City and were huge parts of pressing the attack and not allowing United to find a way back into the game. One of Citys offseason additions, Alvaro Negredo was a handful for the United backline and although he didnt find the score sheet was influential throughout the contest. "Its an important game for the team," said Pellegrini. "And for the fans they will be happy for the month now." Though they have looked uneven at times to start the season, the victory over United moves City two points shy of the top of the table. Moyes was forced to play the game without his number one offensive weapon when Robin van Persie was ruled out of the game with a groin injury. His side was under the gun from the start of the game and had trouble dealing with the City attack immediately. They held out for the majority of the opening half and looked as though they were going to trail only 1-0 at the interval when Toure scored just before the break. Five minutes into the second half the advantage was doubled and the game was over. Wayne Rooney, who was Uniteds best player during the match, scored a beautiful free-kick goal in the 87th minute to get his team on the board. "Its horrible to lose the derby, its always horrible. Its worse when you lose in this way," said United captain Nemanja Vidic. Moyes can take heart in the fact that legendary former United manager Sir Alex Ferguson was beaten 5-1 at Maine Road in his first Manchester Derby. "Ive made them aware of what I think," said Moyes when asked what he told the team.

"The club would like to place on record its thanks to Paolo and his staff and wishes them well for the future," said Sunderland in a statement. Despite helping the team avoid relegation last season, Di Canio remained a controversial appointment for Sunderland and its fans. Di Canio had already been fined 8,000 for an outburst at a referee that saw him sent off. Kevin Ball, a former Sunderland captain, has been put in temporary charge, with a League Cup game on Tuesday. North London rules the top of the table as both Arsenal and Tottenham are on 12 points, two points clear of Manchester City, Chelsea and Liverpool. Mesut Ozil was brilliant again for the Gunners as they rode to a 3-1 victory over Stoke City at the Emirates Stadium. He had a hand in all three goals and was credited with two assists for his efforts. Aaron Ramsey fired home the rebound of an Ozil free-kick in the fifth minute, Per Mertesacker converted an Ozil corner in the 36th and Bacary Sagna headed home an Ozil free-kick in the 72nd. "The only thing of our position at the moment is that we are in a position where we can focus on improvement in a stable environment, so thats a good basis," said Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger. Meanwhile Spurs, courtesy of an injury time winner from Paulinho, claimed a 1-0 victory over Cardiff City. Tottenham dominated the contest with little to no push back from their opponents but it looked as though they were going to have to settle for just a single point. With time winding down, Erik Lamela found Paulinho who tapped home the winning marker. "We played so much football it would have been unfair to leave here with only one point," said Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas. Other winners included: Chelsea, Everton, West Bromwich Albion, Hull City, Southampton, Aston Villa and Swansea City. ' ' '
