Rockets stun Clippers 119-107 to force deciding Game 7

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Corey Brewer scored 15 of his 19 points in the fourth quarter and the Houston Rockets erased a 19-point, second-half deficit to stun the Los Angeles Clippers 119-107 on Thursday night to force a Game 7 in the Western Conference semifinals.

James Harden, who played less than a minute in the fourth quarter, scored 23 points - making all 11 of his free throws - and Dwight Howard added 20 points and 21 rebounds for the Rockets, who have won two straight games.

Game 7 is Sunday in Houston.

The Clippers were cruising with a 19-point lead in the third quarter, seemingly assured of earning the franchise's first berth in the conference finals. The Rockets scored nine straight to cut it to 13 heading into the fourth.

Houston hit seven 3-pointers in the fourth and stymied the Clippers offensively. Blake Griffin, who finished with 28 points, didn't score in the final quarter.
