T-Wolves overcome Harden's 42 to top Houston 121-111

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) James Harden was Josh Okogie's responsibility for much of Wednesday night. Even though Harden piled up 42 points, Okogie's teammates were full of praise for the Nigerian rookie.

"It wasn't a good 42," Karl-Anthony Towns said. "It wasn't a 42 that he's been getting recently, you know. He had to work for it."

Towns had 25 points, Jeff Teague had 27 points and 12 rebounds, and Okogie locked down Harden when it counted most to help the Timberwolves beat the Houston Rockets 121-111.
