December 9th, 2016 by Jared Johnson Leave a reply »
The Houston Rockets held off the Oklahoma City Thunder down the stretch Friday night to earn a 102-99 victory over their Western Conference rivals. The Rockets are now 16-7 on the season, and the Thunder are 14-9.

Neither James Harden nor Russell Westbrook had their best nights shooting or handling the ball, but they stuffed the stat sheet and made an impact nonetheless. Harden compiled 21 points, nine rebounds and 12 assists, while Westbrook ended with 27 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists.

In a contest where neither team shot the ball well, it was the Rockets' offensive rebounding that made the difference. Houston gobbled up 16 boards on its own missed shots to keep numerous possessions alive.

Both teams had rather balanced attacks aside from their superstars, but OKC's Steven Adams did have a career-high 24 points along with 10 rebounds.

The Rockets will be back in action on their home court against the Dallas Mavericks on Saturday, while the Thunder will host the Boston Celtics on Sunday.
