NBA scores for Wednesday, March 7

All times Eastern

Rockets make it 17 in a row

The Rockets' string of wins continues. It wasn't pretty in the end, but they managed to hold off a late Bucks comeback and some stagnant offense to pull out the win. James Harden poured in 26 points, which was enough to beat out the 30-point effort by Giannis Antetokounmpo. The Rockets' next matchup is Friday against the Raptors and that should be a serious challenge.

LeBron takes over late
