A 17 straight victories, the Houston Rockets are riding the longest winning streak in the N-B-A this season. They weren’t at their best Wednesday, but it was good enough to beat the Milwaukee Bucks 110-99. James Harden scored 26 points for the Rockets. Houston made seven turnovers in the first quarter and 11 straight points by the Bucks in the third period cut the lead to 73-69. The rest of the game was all Houston. Giannis Antetokounmpo topped Milwaukee scoring with 30 points. The Bucks try to beat the Knicks for the third time this season when they play at New York Friday.
