Thunder send Rockets to crash-landing

Thunder send Rockets to crash-landing

While George recorded 45 points during the win, Russell Westbrook added 21 points, 12 rebounds and 11 assists for his ninth straight triple-double, tying the all-time mark by Wilt Chamberlain.

Paul George led the team with 27 points, four assists and four steals, Jerami Grant added 20 points on eight of 11 shooting while Russell Westbrook racked up a triple-double of 15 points with 13 rebounds and 15 assists.

Westbrook has 22 triple-doubles this season, and for a third straight campaign, he is averaging a triple-double. The Rockets are 1-4 ATS in their last five home games, 2-8 ATS in their last 10 games following a win and 7-3 ATS in the last 10 games against a team above.600.

On Saturday, George helped the Thunder to another huge comeback.

"I just got caught up with Adams", he said. They lost for just the second time in 14 games.

James Harden, the NBA's Most Valuable Player, recorded his 29th consecutive 30-point game, in scoring 42 points.

Through all the lead changes and momentum swings, there were a few themes that really started to pop on the Thunder's side.

Harden saw a variety of Thunder defenders, with fellow MVP candidate Paul George (45 points on 12-of-22 shooting) taking the bulk of the load.

Instead, Paul George made two free-throws down the other end to ice the 117-112 win at the Toyota Center in Houston on Sunday.

At 58-42, they landed what appeared to be a devastating blow.

But they made just six of their 18 shots in the third period, including just one three-pointer.

Harden refused to make excuses despite getting hit "pretty hard" in the first quarter, according to coach Mike D'Antoni. "Being down that much at the half, that's not the team we are".

Steven Adams had played a big hand in helping his Oklahoma City Thunder side beat the Houston Rockets.

There have been closer games this season and even bigger performances-mostly from Harden-but this game was about as interesting as anyone could have possibly imagined.

Boston players left the court to boos from their home fans.

"It's not even surprising no more", Thunder guard Terrance Ferguson said of Westbrook.

The Celtics were up by 20 at the time.

Rookie Landry Shamet, newly arrived from Philadelphia, scored 14 of his 17 points in the second half.

Danilo Gallinari's step-back jump shot put the Clippers up 102-100 and they wouldn't trail again.

After a quiet trade deadline, Donovan said Saturday there's not a specific player the Thunder's front office is targeting.
