MINNEAPOLIS, Feb. 10 (UPI) -- Houston's Dwight Howard put in 18 points and grabbed 15 rebounds Monday, hoisting the Rockets to a sixth straight win, 107-89 over Minnesota.

Chandler Parsons (20 points, six assists) and James Harden (19 points) also played big roles for the surging Rockets, who went on an 11-0 run starting the fourth quarter to pull away for the win.

Kevin Love, who had missed two of the last three games with minor injuries, returned to supply 31 points and 10 rebounds for the Timberwolves, but it wasn't enough to prevent their fourth consecutive loss.

Minnesota was still without starters Kevin Martin (thumb) and center Nikola Pekovic (ankle), as well as Coach Rick Adelman, who missed the game for personal reasons.
