Roundup: Harden unstoppable in Rockets debut

James Harden had 37 points and 12 assists in a stirring debut for his new team, and Carlos Delfino made four 3-pointers in the fourth quarter to lift the Houston Rockets to a 105-96 victory over the Detroit Pistons Wednesday night at the Palace of Auburn Hill, Mich.

Detroit led, 83-72, early in the fourth, but Harden and Delfino brought the Rockets back. Houston acquired Harden Saturday night in a trade with Oklahoma City.
