(TSX / STATS) -- HOUSTON -- The Houston Rockets did little to thwart the New Orleans Pelicans' red-hot shooting before their small-ball lineup paid dividends in the fourth quarter.

Guards James Harden and Chris Paul choose that same closing stretch to kick into gear offensively, fortuitous timing for Houston.

The Rockets erased a 13-point, third-quarter deficit in their 130-123 win over the Pelicans on Monday night at Toyota Center.
