Houston, TX (SportsNetwork.com) - Terrence Jones scored a career-high 36 points with 11 rebounds to help the Houston Rockets to a 114-104 win over the Milwaukee Bucks.

James Harden scored 22 points, Dwight Howard netted 20 points with 14 rebounds, and Aaron Brooks added 10 points off the bench for the Rockets, who have won four of their last five games.

Brandon Knight paced Milwaukee, which lost for the eighth consecutive game, with 26 points and seven assists. John Henson distributed a double-double of 20 points and 15 rebounds, while Luke Ridnour and Larry Sanders added 14 and 12 points, respectively, in defeat.
