(NBA) Houston halt losing streak
(03-18 11:41)

Terrence Jones scored 30 points as the Houston Rockets beat Jazz 124-86 to end a three-game skid with their most lopsided victory of the season.
Dwight Howard was out with an ankle strain, leaving the Rockets without him for the first time this season. But they still had no problem handling the Utah Jazz, who have lost five in a row and have one of the worst records in the Western Conference.
Houston led 92-69 entering the fourth, and the big advantage allowed an overworked James Harden, who had played more than 43 minutes in three of the previous four games, to rest a bit as he watched the fourth quarter from the bench. Harden finished with 15 points.
Derrick Favors had 15 points for the Jazz a night after scoring a career-high 28. --AP
