|LOS ANGELES, Calif. New Orleans Pelicans Jerseys . - Dwight Howard returned for the first time to Staples Center, where the Los Angeles Clippers ran his Houston Rockets off the floor with their most points in four years. J.J. Redick scored 19 of his 26 points in the first half to lead seven players in double figures, and Los Angeles beat Houston 137-118 Monday night, handing the Rockets their first loss of the season. "We were making everything," Clippers coach Doc Rivers said. "They were in foul trouble. A lot of things went right." It was the Clippers highest-scoring game since having 140 against the Knicks on March 25, 2009. "A lot of times I just come out with energy and that energy is not matched by the guy guarding me," Redick said. Chris Paul added 23 points and 17 assists, Jamal Crawford had 21 points, and Blake Griffin scored 18 for the Clippers, who led the entire game and tied a franchise record with 78 points in the first half. "Offence is pretty good," Paul said. "Its all about our pace. Were up-tempo. If a team misses, were running." Howard finished with 13 points and nine rebounds after getting roundly booed in his first game in Los Angeles since leaving the Lakers and signing with Houston in the NBAs biggest free agent move last summer. "They can boo me a million times. Ill still play," he said. Reflecting on his one up-and-down season with the Lakers, Howard said, "I just allowed what people said to affect how I played. But I cant do that. I mean, Im better than that." Jared Dudley added 15 points and DeAndre Jordan had 11 points and nine rebounds for the Clippers, who have won five in a row against Houston at home and three straight overall after losing their season opener to the Lakers. "They had 15 3s and a ton of paint points, so they had the best of both worlds," Rockets coach Kevin McHale said. Coming off a sprained left ankle, Omri Casspi led seven Houston players in double figures with 19 points off the bench. James Harden added 15 points, and Chandler Parsons had 14, along with Jeremy Lin and Francisco Garcia. The Rockets fell to 3-1. The Clippers turned the final seven minutes into Lob City, with Paul orchestrating back-to-back, alley-oop passes to Jordan and Griffin that ended in dunks. They were part of a 15-5 run that stretched the Clippers lead to 129-108. The Rockets controlled the start of the fourth, but got no closer than nine points. That was as close as they got four times in the third. "They just did whatever they wanted," McHale said. "We just couldnt stop them." The Clippers led 78-66 at halftime. They shot 59 per cent from the floor and made 19 of 22 free throws. Redick shot 6 of 9 and made all six of his free throws in the half. "Guy can shoot the basketball. Its unbelievable," Griffin said. "The best part of playing with him is he never stops moving. Thats how he gets his shots, he really works for them." Howard picked up three fouls in the first quarter. Griffin also had three fouls by halftime, including two in an 11-second span just before the break. Notes: The Clippers set a franchise record for 3-point attempts in a game with 38. ...

Anything less than gold for either nation is considered a disappointment. Yet for Switzerland, advancing to the semifinal might be a victory in itself.PITTSBURGH -- Edinson Volquez loves how Josh Harrison plays the game. He thinks the third baseman is the most valuable player in the National League. Harrison hit an RBI triple and scored on Jose Tabatas tiebreaking single in the eighth inning, leading the Pittsburgh Pirates to a 2-1 victory over the Cincinnati Reds on Friday night. Harrison had three hits while also making a number of sparkling defensive plays. Tabata, starting in right field for the injured Travis Snider, finished with two hits in the Pirates sixth win in eight games. "Hes unbelievable," Volquez said of Harrison, who began the season as the last man on the Pirates bench but is now their leadoff hitter. "He can do everything. For me, hes the MVP with the way hes been playing. Hes an exciting player." Volquez was working on a no-hitter before Devin Mesoracos leadoff single in the seventh. He was charged with one run and three hits in 7 2-3 innings, running his unbeaten streak to seven starts. "It was a very impressive outing," Pirates manager Clint Hurdle said. "It wasnt his best fastball but he kept it down and no-hit them for six innings without the best stuff weve seen from him." Reds right-hander Mike Leake allowed six hits in seven innings in his second consecutive scoreless outing. He pitched 6 2-3 innings in a 1-0 victory over Atlanta last Saturday in his previous start. Cincinnati put two runners on in the eighth, chasing Volquez from the game. Mesoraco then put the Reds in front with an RBI single against Tony Watson (10-1), but Brandon Phillips was thrown out at home to end the inning. The Pirates ERA is 2.15 over their last eight games. Mesoraco had two of the Reds four hits. The Pirates winning rally came against Jonathan Broxton (4-2). Pinch-hitter Andrew Lambo, recalled from Triple-A Indianapoliss before the game, singled off first baseman Todd Fraziers glove with one out. DeMarcus Cousins Jersey. . Then Harrison and Tabata followed with their big hits. "It was really one pitch that hurt me," Broxton said. "Harrison hit one off the right-field wall but the other two hits were ground balls." TRAINERS ROOM Reds: 1B Joey Votto experienced pain in the area of his troublesome left knee on Wednesday when he attempted to field ground balls for the first time since going on the disabled list July 6 with a distal quadriceps strain, manager Bryan Price said Friday. Votto wont be ready to play when he is eligible to come off the disabled list on Thursday, and the rest of the season is in doubt. Pirates: 1B Pedro Alvarez (sprained left foot) sat out for a second game and Snider (left hamstring discomfort) was not in the lineup after leaving Wednesdays win over St. Louis. Both are day to day. UP NEXT Reds: RHP Alfredo Simon (13-8, 3.26 ERA) will start Saturday in his first outing since breaking a five-game losing streak Sunday by beating Atlanta. Simon is 1-4 with a 4.74 ERA in eight starts in the second half after going 12-3 with a 2.70 ERA in 18 starts in the first half and being selected to his first All-Star game. Pirates: RHP Vance Worley (5-4, 3.14 ERA) will try to bounce back after losing his last three starts and compiling a 6.11 ERA in that span. BOLSTERING THE BENCH The Pirates recalled Lambo to bolster their bench with Alvarez and Snider sidelined. Lambo hit .328 with 11 home runs and 42 RBIs in 61 games at Indianapolis. He also had hit six home runs in his last eight games. RHP Gerrit Cole was optioned to rookie-level Bristol to clear a roster spot for Lambo. However, it is strictly a procedural move and Cole will be recalled Monday when the roster limit expands to 40 and start that day at St. Louis.
