HOUSTON, March 30 (UPI) --
Omer Asik's 13 points and 12 rebounds led a balanced Houston effort Saturday that offset the loss of James Harden

Jeremy Lin, Chandler Parsons and Francisco Garcia each helped out with 15 points as the Rockets made up for the absence of their leading scorer, who was out with a sore foot.
Carlos Delfino also reached double figures with 11 points as the Rockets defeated the Clippers for the first time in six meetings.
Chris Paul led Los Angeles with 19 points.
