Paul George & James Harden Both Go For 40+ POINTS In Houston

Iman Shumpert expected to make Rockets debut Saturday vs. Thunder

With the easy win, Houston improved to 32-22 overall and 18-14 on the road. 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.

James Harden, the NBA's Most Valuable Player, recorded his 29th consecutive 30-point game, in scoring 42 points. Harden was 11-for-28 from the field, going 6 of 16 from 3-point range, and made 14 of 15 free throws.

Westbrook gave the Thunder a one-point lead with a driving layup with 26.9 seconds remaining.

The Oklahoma City Thunder have waived shooting guard Alex Abrines, the team announced on Saturday. Houston turned it over on the following inbound play. He made both free throws put Oklahoma City up three.

It was an otherwise quiet night for Adams, who had six points, nine rebounds, two steals and two blocks in 38 minutes on the court.

The Thunder were up by three points at that point, so the intervention prevented the Rockets from getting up a potential game-tying three-point shot. 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. Kenneth Faried had 17 points and 12 rebounds.

Gordon Hayward scored 19 points and Jayson Tatum and Terry Rozier had 16 apiece for Boston.

And D'Antoni was unhappy with the Rockets second half performance.

The 29-year-old finished the night with 42 points despite suffering a shoulder injury in the opening quarter. The Celtics led 74-53 at halftime, but the Clippers outscored them 28-12 in the third.

Eight Los Angeles players scored in double figures, led by 21 from Harrell.
