Chandler Parsons tallied 21 points to lead a balanced scoring attack for the Houston Rockets, who secured home-court advantage for their first-round playoff series with a 104-98 victory over the San Antonio Spurs.

Dwight Howard added 20 points on 9-of-11 shooting while pulling down 17 rebounds to help Houston complete a season sweep of the NBA-best Spurs and clinch the No. 4 seed in the Western Conference. The Rockets will take on Portland in the quarterfinals.

Terrence Jones finished with 20 points and 11 boards in the win, with James Harden netting 16 points along with seven assists despite a 4-of-16 performance from the field.

Having already sewn up the league's best record for the regular season, the Spurs did send out their "Big Three" of Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili, but rested several other key players.

Marco Belinelli paced San Antonio with 17 points, with Duncan posting 12 points and nine rebounds and Jeff Ayres also recording 12 points while coming off the bench.
