Notebook: Rockets 111, Thunder 107


Matt Miller, for NBA.com
Posted Sat Apr 05, 2014 1:51 AM - Updated Sat Apr 05, 2014 1:51 AM

THE FACT: Oklahoma City Thunder forward Kevin Durant has scored at least 25 points in 40 consecutive games, matching Michael Jordan (1986-87) for the longest streak of 25-point performances in the last 50 years.

THE LEAD: James Harden scored a game-high 39 points to go with nine rebounds and seven assists, and the undermanned Houston Rockets punched their ticket to the postseason with a thrilling 111-107 victory over the short-handed Thunder on Friday at Toyota Center. Chandler Parsons pitched in 23 points and six boards for Houston (50-25), which snapped a three-game losing streak while winning at home for the 12th time in its last 13 attempts.

Durant led Oklahoma City (55-20) -- which has lost four of its last seven road games and saw its three-game win streak come to a halt -- with 28 points, 12 rebounds and six assists. Serge Ibaka added a career high-tying 27 points, nine boards and six blocks, but the Thunder sent the feisty Rockets to the foul line too many times down the stretch. Despite the defeat, Oklahoma City wrapped up its fourth straight Northwest Division title by virtue of Portland's loss to Phoenix on Friday.

The Rockets, who also snapped a six-game skid against winning opponents with Friday's victory, have won 50 games for the 10th time in franchise history and 30 home games for the first time since 2008-09.

QUOTABLE: "It was a great win for us, especially since we wanted to get out of the three-game losing skid we were on, just to give ourselves confidence ... going into the playoffs."
-- Houston's James Harden

THE STAT: The Rockets attempted 20 free throws in the fourth quarter, the same amount Oklahoma City shot over the course of the game.

TURNING POINT: The Thunder held a 98-97 lead with 5:29 remaining in the fourth quarter when Reggie Jackson fouled Parsons as he was attempting a 3-pointer. After Parsons drained all three free-throw attempts to put Houston ahead 100-98, the Rockets held Oklahoma City scoreless on its next five possessions and eventually stretched their advantage to 104-98.

QUOTABLE II: "They weren't playing on-on-one. It was one-on-three. They followed me with two or three guys, and before I get the ball they had two guys on me. Those dudes can't check me one-on-one. They know that. I ain't afraid to say it either."
-- OKC's Kevin Durant, who shot 7-for-19 and committed six turnovers

HOT: Oklahoma City caught fire from long range in the third quarter, knocking down 6 of its 10 3-point attempts to spearhead a 39-point period for the Thunder.

NOT: Houston's Jeremy Lin turned in another poor shooting performance, finishing 3-for-11 from the field. The fourth-year guard has shot just 30.8 percent (16-for-52) over his last four games.

BAD MOVE: The Thunder committed a foul as the Rockets were attempting a jumper from the perimeter on three different occasions during the fourth period, leading to critical points that proved to be the difference in this one.

QUOTABLE III: "I thought our guys were good. We had some good performances. We just fouled too many times."
-- Thunder coach Scott Brooks

NOTABLE: Both clubs played without a pair of starters. Oklahoma City's Russell Westbrook (knee) and Kendrick Perkins (groin) sat out as part of the Thunder's plan to rest both players on one night of a back-to-back set as they work their way back to full health. Rockets center Dwight Howard (ankle) and guard Patrick Beverley (knee), meanwhile, each missed their fourth game in a row. ... Houston's bench was missing a familiar face in former assistant coach Kelvin Sampson, who has returned to the college ranks to coach the University of Houston's men's basketball team. ... Thunder center Steven Adams left the game in the third period after tweaking his ankle and did not return. Team officials said Adams' ankle was wrapped on the bench, and the rookie was available to return if the situation called for it.

UP NEXT: For the Thunder: Sunday @ Phoenix, Tuesday @ Sacramento, Wednesday @ L.A. Clippers For the Rockets: Sunday vs. Denver, Tuesday @ L.A. Lakers, Wednesday @ Denver.
