BEIJING (AP) James Harden scored 14 points and Ryan Anderson had 11 to lead the Houston Rockets to a 116-104 win over the New Orleans Pelicans in a preseason game Wednesday in Beijing.

The Rockets swept the Pelicans in two preseason games in China behind Harden's passing. After collecting 15 assists in Sunday's game in Shanghai, Harden had 8 assists Wednesday in 24 minutes.

Houston led by 17 after the first quarter and never relinquished the lead. The Rockets moved to 4-0 in the preseason, and the Pelicans fell to 1-3.

The Pelicans played most of the game without star Anthony Davis, who headed to the locker room in the first quarter with a right ankle sprain.
