Here is the latest Washington, Oregon and Alaska sports news from The Associated Press

HOUSTON (AP) – James Harden scored 45 points, including all nine for Houston in overtime, and the Rockets beat the Portland Trail Blazers 108-103 last night after firing Kevin McHale earlier in the day. Corey Brewer made an off-balance 3-pointer to force overtime and Harden took over from there, finishing with 11 assists, eight rebounds and five steals as the Rockets capped off an emotional day at the Toyota Center. Playing just hours after McHale was fired, the Rockets played much of the game with sloppy mistakes and dreadful shooting.

SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) – Domantas Sabonis scored 26 points and Kyle Wiltjer added 23 to help No. 10 Gonzaga beat Northern Arizona 91-52 last night. It was the first game of the season for Gonzaga (1-0), after their season opener against Pittsburgh last Friday was called off at halftime due to extremely slippery court conditions at the Armed Forces Classic in humid Okinawa, Japan. Sabonis, a 6-foot-11 sophomore, made 12 of 13 shots in limited minutes and looked recovered from a recent back injury.

WINNIPEG, Manitoba (AP) – The Winnipeg Jets beat the Vancouver Canucks 4-1 on Wednesday night to end a six-game losing streak. Mark Scheifele and Drew Stafford each had two goals and an assist. Daniel Sedin scored on the power play for Vancouver 6:44 into the second period.

CHENEY, Wash. (AP) – Felix Von Hofe made seven of Eastern Washington’s 15 3-pointers and finished with a career-high 25 points to help the Eagles beat Seattle 76-70. The game was originally scheduled for Tuesday night, but a windstorm across Eastern Washington created dangerous travel conditions.
