HOUSTON — James Harden had 29 points and nine assists, Omer Asik had 10 points and 12 rebounds and Houston cruised to a 121-100 win over Sacramento in the Rockets' regular-season home finale Sunday night.

Jeremy Lin scored 15 for the Rockets, who have won nine of their last 12 home games heading into the playoffs.

The Rockets climbed to sixth place in the Western Conference. They have the same record as Golden State (45-35) but own the tiebreaker after winning the season series with the Warriors 3-1.

John Salmons scored 14 points and former Husky Isaiah Thomas had 10 points and 10 assists for the Kings.

"It's about improving our small things, little detailed things," Harden said. "I don't think the home-run plays are going to get us over the top."
