Trevor Ariza added 19 points for the Rockets (5-0), who used a 13-0 run late in the fourth quarter to pull away.
MIAMI/TORONTO -- James Harden had 25 points, 10 assists and nine rebounds, and Dwight Howard added 26 points and 10 boards as the Houston Rockets remained unbeaten with a 108-91 win over the Miami Heat 108-91 on Tuesday.
Portland's Damian Lillard snapped out of a shooting slump with 27 points as the Trail Blazers held Cleveland star LeBron James to just 11 in a 101-82 win over the Cavaliers.
Lillard was nursing an abdominal strain but had 15 points by halftime. He averaged just 13.7 points on 11-for-41 shooting in the first three games.
Wesley Matthews finished with 21 points as the Blazers (2-2) snapped a two-game losing streak.
At Los Angeles, Gerald Green scored 26 points off the bench and Markieff Morris had 23 points and 10 rebounds, as Phoenix overcame Kobe Bryant's 39-point performance to beat the Lakers 112-106 and keep Los Angeles winless.
Isaiah Thomas scored 22 points in a reserve role for the Suns, who survived a fourth-quarter surge led by Bryant to beat the Lakers for the second time in seven days.
Bryant went 14 for 37 for the Lakers, who are off to their first 0-5 start since the 1957-58 Minneapolis Lakers lost their first seven games.
The Oklahoma City Thunder, already reeling from injuries to stars Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook, lost Perry Jones to a knee injury Tuesday in a 100-88 NBA loss at Toronto.
Jones collided with Patrick Patterson on a drive to the basket early in the third quarter and was helped back to the locker room to have his right knee examined.
Thunder head coach Scott Brooks described the injury as a knee contusion and said Jones would be re-examined on Wednesday.
Injury-hit Oklahoma City had just eight healthy players at tip-off, and Jones, who had arthroscopic surgery on the same knee in July, was one of their few playmakers.
The third-year forward was forced to take on a bigger role because of injuries to reigning NBA Most Valuable Player Durant and Westbrook, and was averaging 18.5 points per game over the first four contests of the season.
Patterson's departure, coupled with Sebastian Telfair's late ejection, forced the Thunder to play the last two minutes with just six healthy players.
“It was an effort that I'm encouraged with,” Brooks said. “These guys are scrappy. This is all new for all of us.”
The Chicago Bulls overcame their injury troubles, making do without Derrick Rose and Joakim Noah in a 98-90 victory over the Orlando Magic on Tuesday.
Jimmy Butler scored 21 points and Spanish big man Pau Gasol added 16 points and 13 rebounds for the Bulls.
Chicago were again without Rose, who missed his second game after spraining both ankles against Cleveland on Friday.
France's Noah was sidelined by illness.
Taj Gibson returned for the Bulls after missing a game with a sprained ankle and had 16 points, and Aaron Brooks and Doug McDermott combined to score 25 off the bench for Chicago.
Nikola Vucevic contributed 19 points and 13 rebounds for Orlando, who fell to 0-4 for the first time since starting 0-6 in 1990-91, their second season in the NBA.
