HOUSTON, April 10 (UPI) -- James Harden was credited with a game-winning 3-pointer at the buzzer after a goaltending call Tuesday, handing Houston a 101-98 win over Phoenix.

Harden's shot counted after the officials whistled the Suns' Jermaine O'Neal for goaltending on the play, giving the Rockets forward 33 points for the game.

Harden drained 13-of-14 free throws while also providing six rebounds and six assists as Houston posted its fifth win in six games.

Francisco Garcia (15 points), Jeremy Lin (13) and Greg Smith (12) also reached double figures for the Rockets, who hold the seventh seed in the Western Conference.

Phoenix got 28 points and eight rebounds from Luis Scola in the loss, their 10th straight and 14th in 15 contests.
