Thunder vs Rockets Predictions and Spread

Westbrook recorded his ninth-consecutive triple-double (21 points, 12 rebounds, 11 assists), tying Wilt Chamberlain for the longest triple-double streak in National Basketball Association history.

Chris Paul almost posted a triple-double (18 points, 10 rebounds, nine assists) in his strongest performance since his return from a hamstring injury.

George finished with a game-high 45 points plus 11 rebounds, torching the Houston defense with six 3-pointers plus 15-for-18 free throws. He also had 10 turnovers and was 8 of 21 from the field.

James Harden led the Rockets with 42 points, reaching 30 points for the 29th straight game - two shy of Chamberlain for the second-longest streak in National Basketball Association history, but far behind Chamberlain's record run of 65 games.

George's four free throws inside the final four seconds sealed the win after Russell Westbrook slipped through the defense to convert a layup and give the Thunder the lead for good at 113-112 with 26.9 seconds left.

Although it is unclear how much Shumpert will play, the news for the Thunder that he will make his debut may not be all that encouraging as he had some of his best performances this season against Oklahoma City.

She was not a senior official on the NSC but knew the organization well, according to two people familiar with her work. President Trump took to Twitter on Friday to try to undercut House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam B.

The Kiwi NBA star got his massive right hand to a Rockets inbounds pass with 3.4 seconds to go which put of the Rockets' Gerald Green to the point where he fumbled the ball out of bounds.

Oklahoma City Thunder forward Paul George (13) dribbles the ball as Houston Rockets guard James Harden (13) defends during the fourth quarter at Toyota Center.

The Oklahoma City Thunder have been on a great run lately with nine wins in their last 10 games and they will be aiming for a third straight victory after blowing past the Grizzlies in a 117-95 home win on Thursday. Abrines appeared in just two games since December 23, sitting out because of undisclosed personal reasons.

Meanwhile, the Houston Rockets have been in great form as they've won six of their past eight games and they will be gunning for a fourth straight victory after routing the Kings in a 127-101 road win on Wednesday. I'm expecting another close encounter but the Thunder are 4-1 ATS in their last five road games and I like their chances against this Rockets team who is still understrength with Clint Capela still out and Chris Paul still not at 100 percent.

The Thunder matched the Rockets' 42-point second quarter with a 42-point third period, keyed by 7-for-12 3-point shooting.
