Thunder roar back to beat Rockets

George Westbrook rally Thunder past Rockets 117-112

George Westbrook rally Thunder past Rockets 117-112

If Westbrook bags another triple-double against the Portland Trail Blazers tomorrow morning (Singapore time), he will hold the longest triple-double streak in National Basketball Association history.

Lucky. Those kicks could be extra valuable, too, if George continues playing the way he did on Saturday night.

"Actually, I'd been seeing it all game", Westbrook said, "so just waiting on the right time to use it".

"I have fun with the game".

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.

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

Back in December, the Thunder completed the largest comeback in team history by erasing a 23-point lead against the Brooklyn Nets behind 47 points from Paul George.

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

"They got on a three roll and we couldn't make a three", he said.

Giants plan to offer Bryce Harper big money on short-term deal
There is an increased sense among some in the clubhouse that Harper would prefer to sign with the Giants according to Pavlovic. All of which means that there will probably be many more twists and turns to come before Harper makes a final decision.

Rockets coach Mike D'Antoni told ESPN: "It was a pretty good match-up against Harden". The Celtics followed their highest-scoring half of the season with their lowest-scoring quarter and lost at home to a team from Los Angeles for the second straight time.

His four free throws inside the final four seconds sealed the win after Russell Westbrook slipped through the defence to convert a lay-up and give them the lead for good at 113-112 with 26.9sec left. He's averaging 36.7 FanDuel points through 32 contests this season.

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

Russell Westbrook had one arm draped across Jerami Grant's shoulders, the other over Terrance Ferguson's.

Acquired from Memphis before Thursday's trade deadline, Gasol played 19 minutes.

Eight Los Angeles players scored in double figures, led by 21 from Harrell. We came out flat the second half for whatever reason. But things fell apart for the Thunder in the second quarter when the Rockets went on a 12-2 run which quickly ballooned into 24-10 midway through.

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

It's the third time in the past five games the Clippers have come from at least 20 points down to win, with the 28-point rally setting a franchise record.

The Wizards got Jabari Parker, Bobby Portis and a protected 2023 second-round pick from the Bulls on Wednesday for Otto Porter Jr.
