NEW ORLEANS -- James Harden capped a 26-point performance with a tiebreaking jumper with 28 seconds left, and the Houston Rockets held on for their third straight victory, 103-100 over the reeling New Orleans Pelicans on Wednesday night. Cincinnati Reds Jerseys . Eric Gordon scored a season-high 35 points, but the Pelicans lost their seventh straight. Terrence Jones scored 23 and Dwight Howard added 12 points, 11 rebounds and three blocks for the Rockets, who trailed by as many as 17 in the second quarter and by eight with about four minutes to go. Harden had a hand in 12 of Houstons final 17 points, scoring 10 and assisting on Howards alley-oop dunk. Anthony Davis added 24 points for New Orleans, his sixth straight game with 20 or more, but Darius Miller missed a potential tying 3 in the final seconds. Jason Smith and Brian Roberts each added 10 points for New Orleans, but Smith missed a potential tying jumper from the top of the key with 12 seconds left. Chandler Parsons who had 17 points, then made one of two free throws for the final margin. The Rockets made things difficult for themselves by missing 16 of 41 free throws, and won despite leading for only 1:14 the entire game. The Pelicans led by 12 early in the third quarter after Davis jump shot, but Davis then committed three fouls in the span of 1:34, giving him four for the game and prompting coach Monty Williams to bring his star forward to the bench. Less than four minutes after Davis left the game, his former Kentucky teammate, Jones, tied the game at 68. But New Orleans managed to regain momentum, thanks to a pair of 3s by Gordon, and led 81-74 heading into the final period. With New Orleans missing three top players in Ryan Anderson, Jrue Holiday and Tyreke Evans, the stage appeared set for an easy Houston victory. It appeared it could be another long night for the Pelicans when Howard took an alley-oop lob from Harden and slammed it home with two hands on the opening play of the game. Yet New Orleans wound up dominating the first quarter on both ends of the court, from Smiths crowd-pleasing block of Parsons driving dunk attempt to Davis windmill jam and his 14-foot jumper as he was fouled. Gordon had 14 points, including a pair of 3s, in the first quarter, and New Orleans led 30-19 when the period ended. Gordon scored 22 points before halftime, and New Orleans took its largest lead when Al-Farouq Aminu scored five straight points on a 3-pointer and two free throws to make it 44-27. The Rockets were back within 51-43 when Hardens no-look, behind-the-head pass set up Donatas Motiejunas easy layup. But Davis responded with a jump hook, Gordon added a free throw and New Orleans led 56-45 at halftime.

Ramirez is still hitting behind Puig, only now they are in the third and fourth spots, and the change is starting to generate positive results for manager Don Mattingly.ARLINGTON, Texas - Texas Rangers general manager Jon Daniels never intended to have a managerial search on his to-do list after a lost season.That instead became the top priority, something to get done even before looking for a starting pitcher in free agency or finding another bat for the middle of the lineup.For the first time in five seasons, the Rangers played only 162 games, with not even a wild-card tiebreaker like last season. For the third year in a row, there was a champagne celebration in the other clubhouse at their ballpark as another team clinched a post-season berth.But the club that went to back-to-back World Series in 2010 and 11 had known since mid-summer that there would be no extra games. The plan was for Ron Washington to return in 2015 for his ninth season in Texas until his sudden resignation Sept. 5 for personal reasons a€” not because of the results of a miserable season that ended Sunday with the 95th loss, the most since 1985.There is a strong candidate in Tim Bogar, the first-year Rangers bench coach who as interim manager went 14-8.Daniels plans to also interview two other internal candidates (pitching coach Mike Maddux and Triple-A manager Steve Buechele) and probably four or five others from outside the organization. The hope is to have that hire done before the World Series starts Oct. 21.Were going through a process I think is ultimately in everybodys best interest, Daniels said. As I told Tim, at the end of the day, if hes announced as our full-time manager ... its going to be with a lot more behind it.Daniels said Bogar made the most of an opportunity in a 22-game stretch in which the young Rangers won four consecutive series and gave the Oakland Athletics fits.Texas swept a three-game series in Oakland, then took two of the first three games in the closing weekend series. The As then won 4-0 on Sunday to finally clinch their third consecutive playoff berth on the last day of the regular season.Next for Bogar is the formal interview process, knowingg that there are more factors than his record over the past three-plus weeks. Reggie Sanders Jersey. I want this job. Im going to approach it like I have to win the job, Bogar said. JD and I have already talked about it. It didnt matter if I went 0-22 or 22-0. It was a lot more about all the other intangibles that go along with this job. He has to be comfortable with someone that he can have a relationship and work at the same level.Once the manager is in place, the search will be on for a pitcher to join rehabilitated front-line starters Yu Darvish and Derek Holland. Daniels said, though, he doesnt expect to play at the top end of free agency to add pitching.Veteran right-hander Colby Lewis could return, but Martin Perez next spring will still be recovering from elbow surgery and Matt Harrisons future is questionable after spinal fusion surgery this summer.The two big moves last off-season could be the significant additions again next spring. Prince Fielder and Shin-Soo Choo had season-ending injuries their first year in Texas, where both are signed through 2020.Fielder, the slugger acquired from Detroit last November, last played May 16 before the cervical fusion of two disks in his neck. He hit just .247 with three home runs and 16 RBIs in 42 games. Before surgery, he had played 547 consecutive games since 2010, then the longest active streak in the majors.Choo hit .242 with 13 homers and 40 RBIs in 123 games before surgery earlier this month to remove a bone spur from his left elbow. The outfielder who led off then had surgery on a bothersome left ankle.We need a major uptick there, Daniels said. Weve made big commitments and I expect those guys to be healthy, and I expect them to be productive.But Fielder and Choo werent the only injured Rangers.Texas used the disabled list 26 times for 21 players who combined had more than 2,000 games missed. Fielder, Choo and Darvish were among a dozen players who ended the season on the 60-day DL and have to be added back to the roster.
