He made both free throws put Oklahoma City up three. "Just play basketball, '" Ferguson said.

"We came out flat the second half for whatever reason". We know this team very well and we knew that wasn't us.

Russell Westbrook recorded his 9th straight triple-double in the Oklahoma City Thunder's 117-112 win over the Houston Rockets, tying Wilt Chamberlain for most consecutive triple-doubles.

It was Oklahoma City's largest comeback victory.

"Actually, I'd been seeing it all game", Westbrook said, "so just waiting on the right time to use it".

Defensively, George fought through screens in the final minute to stay on Harden.

Westbrook matched an National Basketball Association record set by Wilt Chamberlain with his ninth consecutive triple-double: 21 points, 12 rebounds, and 11 assists.

Consecutive triple-doubles Russell Westbrook has notched. The Rockets are 1-4 ATS in their last five home games, 2-8 ATS in their last 10 games following a win and 7-3 ATS in the last 10 games against a team above.600.

Harden's points total saw him clock up his 29th consecutive game with at least 30 points, but it wasn't enough to stop the Thunder who overturned a 26 point deficit to secure the victory in Texas.

NEW YORK (AP) - Marc Gasol had seven points and six rebounds in his Toronto debut and the Raptors sent the New York Knicks to their 16th straight loss, 104-99 Saturday night.

"We couldn't really make a play, or get rebounds at times that matter".

Houston shot a 42-point second quarter, which gave them a 22 point lead at the break, but the Thunder came back strong in the third with a 42 point quarter of their own. The Celtics collapse corresponded to the loss of Kyrie Irving, who left with a sprained knee in the second quarter, when the game seemed comfortably in hand. After Harden put the Rockets up 112-111 with a running floater as the game clock read 32 seconds, Westbrook gave the Thunder the lead for good with a driving finish of his own, then on the other end forced his former teammate into a hard 27-footer that caromed off the rim.

"We have to be consistent for four quarters", Harden said. They have lost four in a row on their eight-game trip while their home arena hosts a 17-day stock show and rodeo.

"It was a pretty good matchup against Harden", Rockets coach Mike D'Antoni said. "We had our chances".

"We just got to watch the film and continue to get better, that's all we can do".

Rookie Landry Shamet, newly arrived from Philadelphia, scored 14 of his 17 points in the second half.

Still, they led 86-79 before Thunder guard Dennis Schroder closed the frame with 11 straight points to pull the team even at 90-all entering the fourth.

Acquired from Memphis before Thursday's trade deadline, Gasol played 19 minutes.

"I think he had 25 at the half".

"It's just a lot of things".

Lucky. Those kicks could be extra valuable, too, if George continues playing the way he did on Saturday night.

Bojan Bogdanovic led a balanced offense with 23 points, the fifth time in his last six games he has topped 20 points, as host in avenged a home loss in December to the Cavaliers. It was his 21st 40-point game this season; no other player has more than seven.

Parker scored 20 points off the bench and Portis chipped in 10 points and 12 rebounds as the Wizards reserves outscored their Bulls counterparts 64-38.
