Paul leads Rockets over Hornets 108-96 for 11th straight win

HOUSTON (AP) With the way Mike D'Antoni has handled Houston's rotation lately, there are times nine-time All-Star Chris Paul is left to run Houston's offense against second-team defenses.

That combination proved the difference on Wednesday night when Paul led the Rockets to a huge run in the first half that helped them extend their NBA-best winning streak to 11 games with a 108-96 victory over the Charlotte Hornets.

Paul scored a season-high 31 points and James Harden added 21 to help Houston to its 17th win in 18 games and improve to 22-4, the best record in the league.
