Hawks attempt to again "slow" Rockets' Harden

Atlanta is one of the few teams that has had limited success in "slowing" Houston's James Harden.

Harden, who is averaging 35.9 points, has averaged only 25 points in his last three contests with the Hawks and averages 23.4 points in 16 career games against Atlanta. But Houston, which visits Atlanta on Tuesday night, has won three straight games against the Hawks and seeks to sweep the season series for the second consecutive year.

The Rockets (42-27) are chasing Denver for second place in the Western Conference, while trying to hold off Portland and Oklahoma City. Houston has won two in a row, including Sunday's 117-102 win over Minnesota. Houston has been one of the hottest teams in the league with wins in 11 of their last 12.
