Russell Westbrook had 22 points, 10 rebounds and eight assists only at halftime as he leads the Oklahoma City Thunder 68-62 over the Houston Rockets in Game 2 of the Western Conference Round 1 NBA Playoffs.
Westbrook’s achievement this season in triple-double category has been part of the success of the Thunder. Westbrook will try to make the series tied at 1-1 if the entire Thunder will continuously put the game into separation.
The Thunder are 55.3 percent shooting from the field making 26-of-47 while the Rockets are making it 20-for-41 for 48.3 percent. In terms of free throws, the Rockets made 18-of-22 while the Thunder delivered 13-of-14. The free-throw contest is crucially important for both teams and it will dictate the entire complexion of the game.
Meanwhile, James Harden has 16 points and six assists so far as the anchor of the Rockets. In addition, Lou Williams has already scored 16 points coming from the bench. It would take a full team effort for the Rockets to bounce back as the Thunder are not willing to give up.
