Rockets-Nuggets Preview

(AP) -- Though the Houston Rockets were able to count on James Harden to remain among the Western Conference's top teams with Dwight Howard sidelined, they are more than happy to have their center back after a three-week absence.

Howard looks to lead Houston to its second straight win over the injury-ravaged Denver Nuggets on Wednesday night.

The Rockets (18-5) went 8-3 with Howard out due to a strained right knee, averaging a plus-1.8 scoring margin. Harden led the NBA with 29.1 points per game in that span, shooting 46.3 percent after previously recording a 37.2 mark.
