Houston star James Harden scored 12 points before leaving in the second quarter with a bruised right knee and the Orlando Magic went on to a 123-119 exhibition victory over the Rockets on Sunday night.

Harden was injured when he banged his knee into Evan Fournier playing defense on a fast break. He walked gingerly off the court and didn't return. Coach Kevin McHale said after the game that he didn't have any more information on Harden's injury.

Dwight Howard didn't play for the second straight game and Corey Brewer led the Rockets with 20 points.
