James Harden leads Rockets past Mavericks, 107-91

HOUSTON (AP) James Harden and Houston Rockets coach Mike D'Antoni stressed Saturday night the importance of establishing a consistent defensive presence.

Harden scored 29 points to lead the Rockets to a 107-91 victory over the Dallas Mavericks in the team's home opener on Saturday night.

While Houston's hot shooting certainly helped, holding the Mavericks to 20 points or less in each of the first three quarters gave the Rockets plenty of breathing room.
