HOUSTON, Dec. 22 (UPI) -- James Harden poured in 31 points Saturday, leading a parade of seven Rockets reaching double figures in Houston's 121-96 spanking of Memphis.

Marcus Morris (16 points), Omer Asik (14, 12 rebounds) and Jeremy Lin (15, 11 assists, six boards) also played big roles for the Rockets.

Harden also distributed eight assists.

Houston had little trouble with the Grizzlies' top-ranked defense in racking up its fourth consecutive home victory and 13th consecutive defeat of Memphis at the Toyota Center.

Mike Conley put in 16 points and Zach Randolph provided 10 and 10 rebounds as the Grizzlies saw their four-game winning streak snapped.
