For three and a half quarters, the shorthanded New Orleans Pelicans were setting season highs and breaking franchise records on offense.

In the final six minutes, they ran out of gas and watched Rockets stars James Harden and Chris Paul hit the accelerator in driving Houston to its 10th straight win.

Despite scoring a season-high 123 points and hitting a franchise record 18 3-pointers, The Pelicans fell to the Rockets 130-123 at the Toyota Center on Monday night.
