NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Carlos Delfino scored 20 points to lead the Houston Rockets to a 97-90 preseason victory over the New Orleans Hornets on Wednesday night.

Houston (4-2) trailed 45-43 at halftime, but hit six of its first eight shots from the field in the third quarter to take control with a 17-4 run.

Chandler Parsons added 18 points, and Kevin Martin and rookie Terrence Jones had 15 each for the Rockets. Jeremy Lin had two points on 1-of-8 shooting and added five assists.

Delfino and Chandler Parsons each made four 3-pointers.

Ryan Anderson led New Orleans (3-4) with 23 points, hitting 5 of 7 3-pointers. No. 1 overall draft pick Anthony Davis had 13 points, eight rebounds and three blocked shots, and Greivis Vasquez scored 11 points.

Jones started in place of an injured Patrick Patterson for Houston. The Hornets played without Eric Gordon, Austin Rivers and Jason Smith.

Both teams close out the preseason Friday night. New Orleans will be at Miami, and Houston at Orlando.
