After three games, Russell Westbrook finally got his help, and his friends were a big part of the Thunder beating the Rockets 115-113.
For a large portion of the night, the Thunder had around a 10 point lead and at one point pushing it 15 thanks to the contributions from everyone, Taj Gibson had 20 points and overall the team shot 55% from the field.
The Thunder lead by 10 points entering the fourth quarter, but in the closing minutes of the game the Rockets had fought back to pull within three points.
Down two points in the final seconds of the game the Rockets would have two chances to tie or take the lead but on each possession, James Harden took a contested three and while he had decent looks on both shots, both rimed out.
“Both a little short, good shots, just a little short,” Harden said after the game via NBA tv.
