Andrea Bargnani scored 21 points and Terrence Ross added a career-high 19 for the Raptors, who have lost five straight.

The Rockets planned to fly to Minneapolis immediately after the game to attend Wednesday's funeral for Sasha McHale, the 23-year-old daughter of coach Kevin McHale. Sasha McHale died on Saturday from complications of lupus. The team then will fly from Minneapolis to Oklahoma City to face the Thunder on Wednesday night -- Harden's first game there since he was traded to Houston on Oct. 27.
