Russell Westbrook is Completely Turning the Tables on His Haters

Thunder vs Rockets Predictions and Spread

Behind Paul George, Russell Westbrook, Terrance Ferguson's 3-point barrage and Denni Schroder's exceptional shot-making, the Thunder turned the game on its head to overcome the 22-point deficit to draw even at 90-90 by the end of the third.

His ninth straight triple-double - reaching double figures in three key statistical categories - matched the record set by Wilt Chamberlain in 1968. 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.

"I just got caught up with Adams", he said. "That's how I was taught the game - just enjoy matchups and have fun with it".

James Harden, the NBA's Most Valuable Player, recorded his 29th consecutive 30-point game, in scoring 42 points. The lead changed hands seven times in the fourth quarter, with Russell Westbrook's layup with 26.9 seconds left in regulation putting Oklahoma City up for good.

Donovan Mitchell scored 23 points and Rudy Gobert added 21 points and 13 rebounds to lead host Utah to its second straight win while sending San Antonio to its fourth straight loss in Salt Lake City, Utah.

He drained both from the line to put OKC up three, with Houston turning the ball over on their final posession, leaving George to ice the game at the free throw line.

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

Rockets coach Mike D'Antoni told ESPN: "It was a pretty good match-up against Harden".

It was the 40th time that Walker has topped 20 points and the 17th time he's scored at least 30 this season.

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

"Guys have stepped up in different situations, whether it's guys in different spots, or guys assuming more responsibilities", Thunder coach Billy Donovan said Saturday.

The Celtics were up by 20 at the time.

Acquired from Memphis before Thursday's trade deadline, Gasol played 19 minutes. We came out flat the second half for whatever reason.

The Thunder matched their hosts' 42-point second quarter with a 42 in the third, keyed by seven-for-12 three-point shooting.

"Offensively and defensively we couldn't get anything right", Harden added.

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

Parker had 20 points, and Portis had a game-high 12 rebounds in Saturday's win, during which the Wizards built a 15-point lead in the first half and kept the Bulls at arm's length the rest of the way.
