James Harden led the Rockets with 31 points including a 7-for-7 start from the three-point line to tie the most consecutive three pointers made in a playoff game along with eight rebounds. Omer Asik had 21 points, Patrick Beverley had 14 points, Francisco Garcia 18 points, Chandler Parsons and Aaron Brooks had 10 points each. Six players scored double figures for the Houston Rockets, who shot 47 percent from the field for the game.

 

Kevin Durant led the Oklahoma City Thunder with 36 points, seven assists and seven rebounds for the game. Reggie Jackson had 20 points for the game and made late game buckets, but it wasn’t enough to get them out of the deficit they had created early in the game.

 

The Rockets and Thunder series heads back to Houston for a game six on Friday. Oklahoma currently leads 3-2, but will have to play with a sense of urgency if they don’t want to play a game seven. The winner of this series will go up against the winner of the Memphis Grizzlies and the Los Angeles Clippers series.
