Chandler Parsons scored 24 points and James Harden had 23 to help Houston rally from a 19-point deficit for a 104-93 victory over Utah on Saturday night that kept the Jazz winless and the Rockets undefeated.

Jeremy Lin added 20 points as the Rockets (3-0) outscored the Jazz 64-37 in the second half.

After John Lucas made a jumper to beat the shot clock and pull the Jazz within 95-90 with 3:27 left, the Rockets allowed just one field goal the rest of the way.

Enes Kanter made an inside jumper to give Utah its final lead, 85-83 with 7:11 remaining. Harden drove for a layup, Lin hit a 3-pointer and Parsons followed with another basket to start the game-ending run.

Richard Jefferson led Utah (0-3) with 18 and Kanter added 16 for the Jazz.
