The Rockets take game two with a 115-111 win over the Thunder (In 150 words or less)

It was certainly no cakewalk like in game one, but the Houston Rockets ended up coming out on top beating the Oklahoma City Thunder 115-111 to take a commanding 2-0 lead in theirĀ first round matchup.

Russell Westbrook Wednesday night finished with 51 points, 10 rebounds, and 13 assists, the first ever 50 point triple-double in NBA playoff history, and while the Rockets couldn’t stop him, the Thunder also had no answer for Lou Williams, Nene, and Eric Gordon, who off the bench to nearly match him point for point combining to scoring 50 points.

The Thunder did everything they could Wednesday try and pick up the win, they outrebounded the Rockets, had more second chance points, fewer turnovers, more fastbreak points, and still, they could not find a way.

As the series heads to Oklahoma City, the Rockets have still yet to play what they would consider a great game and they lead 2-0.
