"James is kind of the head of the spear," Rockets coach Kevin McHale said. "He's the guy that takes us out and gets us going."

Nick Young scored 21 while Dorell Wright added 20 points, six rebounds and six assists for the Sixers, who are on a five-game losing streak.

Philadelphia point guard Jrue Holiday missed his fourth straight with a foot injury.
