Thunder race past Rockets for first win in 14 tries

OKLAHOMA CITY (NBA.com exclusive) -- The Houston Rockets had dominated the Oklahoma City-Seattle franchise like no other over the last 13 games, winning them all. Four years worth of nothing but wins. The longest streak by the Rockets over any opponent, ever.

Wednesday night inside a sold-out Ford Center that streak came to a crashing end as the Thunder led from start to finish and blistered the Rockets 122-104.

"That was a great game for us, we played great basketball," said Thunder coach Scott Brooks, whose team had struggled a bit of late having lost two in a row and three of the last four to fall to seventh in the Western Conference standings.

"The pressure we put on our team is to play hard and play for each other," Brooks stressed. "We can't worry about what other teams are doing. We can't control any of that."

The game was even more critical for a Houston club running out of time to get back into the playoff picture.

"We lost. We're disappointed," said Rockets coach Rick Adelman. "You just can't play like that when you're trying to win games. As a team we didn't play well. That's really what we need to talk about. We've got to respond and see if we can get better."

Houston (36-34) was coming into Oklahoma City at the end of a three-game road trip and had to play short-handed as Shane Battier, David Andersen, Jared Jeffries and Jordan Hill all sat out the contest with injuries.

Meanwhile Oklahoma City (43-27) got rookie shooting guard James Harden back in the lineup after missing two weeks with a strained hamstring. Harden responded by hitting his first four shots, three from long range, and finished with 23 points.

"I just wanted to come out and be aggressive," Harden said. "The trainers did a great job with my rehab and getting me ready to play. These last few days I've been shooting the ball really well."

Harden dropped 13 points on the Rockets within a span of a few minutes in the first half. As his third straight "three ball" splashed home he looked over at the Thunder bench and smiled.

"I was kinda saying, 'Hey, I'm back.' It was tough to be out and it feels great to be back."

Kevin Durant had 25 points for the Thunder, a nickel short of his season average but understandable as he sat out most of the fourth quarter. Jeff Green added 19 on 8-for-11 shooting, Nenad Krstic dropped in 13, and with three reporters from Switzerland looking on, Swiss native Thabo Sefolosha had his best shooting night of the season, making 5-of-6 and scoring 11 points.

The Thunder set a season-high for sharing the ball with 30 assists. Starting point guard Russell Westbrook had eight and his backup, Eric Maynor, did him one better with nine.

"We did a good job getting those assists and our teammates knocked down the shots," Westbrook said. "They've beaten us every game since I've been here and tonight we got them."

The game was played at a frenetic pace with both teams zipping up and down the court, but the Rockets could never get their shots to fall consistently and Oklahoma City couldn't seem to miss - especially early on.

The Thunder got off to a blazing start shooting 81% in the first quarter (17-for-21), tying their season-high in points to start a game with 39. That figure is the most allowed by the Rockets in any first quarter this season.

"They were just quick to the basket and nobody was challenging their shots," Adelman said. "We were getting beat off the dribble."

Oklahoma City expanded its lead all the way out to 24 points at 65-41 on an amazing 25-for-30 shooting spree before Houston hit a flurry of 3-pointers to get as close as 70-57. The Thunder scored the last four points of the half to produce their highest scoring first 24 minutes of the season and take a 74-57 lead into the break.

Durant led all scorers at that point with 19 on 6-for-9 shooting. Trevor Ariza led the Rockets with 16 first-half points.

Oklahoma City ended the game shooting 58.8% and held the Rockets to just 40.9%. The Thunder defense, fourth in the NBA in field goal percentage, was especially stingy with Houston's top scorers Kevin Martin and Aaron Brooks. Each came in averaging about 20 points a game but managed only 19 combined on 6-for-18 shooting. Brooks was just 3-for-12.

"I thought our guards did a great job on theirs," said Brooks. "When we get stops it really helps fuel our offense. We have to defend, rebound and run and we did all that tonight."
