Notebook: Thunder 106, Rockets 98


Randy Renner, for NBA.com
Posted Wed Mar 12, 2014 12:55 AM - Updated Wed Mar 12, 2014 12:55 AM

THE FACT: Kevin Durant scored 25-plus points for the 29th straight game, tying his career high.

THE LEAD: The Oklahoma City Thunder defense returned from an extended All-Star break and Durant had his 11th 40-point game of the season to lead the Thunder to a thrilling 106-98 win over the Houston Rockets Tuesday night.

Durant led all scorers with 42 points and Russell Westbrook added 24 and seven assists for OKC (47-17). Westbrook and Rockets (44-20) guard Patrick Beverley got into two major incidents within a minute of each other in the first quarter, the first reminiscent of what happened in last season's playoffs. And those seemed to light even more of a fire under Westbrook and the Thunder.

Beverley finished with just two points on 1-for-4 shooting. The Rockets were led by 28 points from James Harden, the former Thunder Sixth Man. He got into a verbal exchange with Thunder coach Scott Brooks after being fouled by Thunder center Steven Adams.

Thunder forward Serge Ibaka had his 23rd double-double of the season with 12 points and 16 rebounds. Ibaka also blocked four shots. Caron Butler added 11 points and hit three 3-pointers for OKC. Chandler Parsons finished with 19 points for Houston but it took him 17 shots.

The OKC defense, which has given up 110 points a game since the All-Star break, held the Rockets to 98 on 41.8-percent shooting.

QUOTABLE: "Well I don't have to say we need to get better on the defensive end tonight, but we're gonna keep working on it. I'm proud of our guys, we challenged ourselves yesterday in practice that after 48 minutes we could be satisfied with the results."
--Thunder coach Scott Brooks

QUOTABLE II: "We missed 15 layups out there. We went in there soft tonight, we didn't attack the rim. We didn't play particularly well the whole night."
--Rockets coach Kevin McHale

QUOTABLE III: "My mom wouldn't have been proud of what I said."
--Brooks said of his confrontation with former OKC player James Harden

THE STAT: The 41.8-percent shooting allowed by OKC tonight is the lowest opponent shooting percentage by a quality opponent since February 11th when the Thunder held Portland to just 37.6 percent.

TURNING POINT: It didn't take long for Westbrook and Beverley to get into it and the scuffle sent the crowd into a frenzy and the Thunder into overdrive. Just halfway through the first quarter it was déjà vu all over again. Westbrook called for a timeout near the sideline, Beverley zipped over and tried to take the ball away (almost exactly like the play that injured Westbrook in the playoffs last season).Westbrook pushed him away and Beverley pushed back hard. That drew a technical foul and led to a near brawl as coaches tried to pull players away from each other. Just a minute later the two tangled again with Beverley trying to steal the ball from Westbrook, both players falling down and Beverley almost pinning Westbrook to the court. That move earned Beverley a foul.

QUOTABLE IV: "You guys saw the same thing I saw. There's not much else to say about it. I'm not worried about what they do or how they do it."
--Brooks on Beverley's aggressive play

HOT: Durant was 3-for-5 (12 points) in the first quarter and finished the half 5-for-9 (17 points).He was 7-for-13 (25 points) in the second half.

NOT: Dwight Howard was 4-for-12 (nine points).

ROOKIE WATCH: Thunder center Steven Adams once again started in place of the injured Kendrick Perkins. He played 24 minutes and just scored two points, but he grabbed eight rebounds and blocked two shots and helped contain Howard.

INSIDE THE ARENA: The 147th consecutive sellout at Chesapeake Energy Arena. Every time Beverley touched the ball the fans booed and the atmosphere was as tense and intense as any game inside The Peake.

GOOD MOVE: The Thunder finally got back to playing intense defense. The Rockets made only 13 shots in the first half and shot just 35 percent. Houston finished at 41.8 percent. It's by far the best defense against a quality opponent the Thunder has played since the All-Star break.

BAD MOVE: With the Rockets down by just five and just under two minutes to play Beverley with a silly foul on Westbrook who was shooting a 3. At the time Westbrook was just 1-for-4 on 3s but he made all three of his free throws.

NOTABLE: The Thunder are now 3-0 against the Rockets this season.

UP NEXT: For the Rockets, Thursday @ Chicago, Sunday @ Miami, Monday vs. Utah. For the Thunder, Thursday vs. LA Lakers, Sunday vs. Dallas, Monday @ Chicago.
