Paul scores 25 to lead Rockets over Wolves 117-102

HOUSTON (AP) After several less-than-stellar third quarters recently, the Houston Rockets talked at halftime Sunday night about coming out of the break better. And, it was that third-quarter improvement that helped them to the win.

Chris Paul scored 25 points, tied a career high with six 3-pointers and had 10 assists, and the Rockets used a big third quarter to pull away and get a 117-102 win over the Minnesota Timberwolves.

The game was close throughout the first half and the Rockets were up by a point at halftime before using a 43-point third quarter, with from Paul, to extend the lead to 15 to start the fourth.
