HOUSTON (AP) -- James Harden had 23 points, 15 rebounds and 10 assists, Trevor Ariza scored a season-high 29 and the Houston Rockets rallied for a 115-104 win over the Dallas Mavericks on Sunday.

The Rockets trailed by one entering the fourth quarter, but they used 14-4 run, highlighted by consecutive 3-pointers by Ariza, Jason Terry and Josh Smith, to take a 98-89 lead with about nine minutes left.

Chandler Parsons made a layup for the Mavericks before Houston scored five straight points to push the lead to 103-91. Terry started that stretch with a 3-pointer and Smith juked Dirk Nowitzki to get open for a hook shot, and the Mavericks didn't threaten again.

Parsons had a season-high 31 points for the Mavericks, who dropped their second straight game.
