Harden has 37 points, Rockets rout Thunder, Westbrook

Golden State Warriors forward Kevin Durant reacts after scoring against the Portland Trail Blazers during the second half of Game 1 of a first-round NBA basketball playoff series in Oakland Calif. Sunday

Golden State Warriors forward Kevin Durant reacts after scoring against the Portland Trail Blazers during the second half of Game 1 of a first-round NBA basketball playoff series in Oakland Calif. Sunday

And it's supposed to be close.

Wall scored a playoff career-high 32 points and dished out 14 assists and Morris added 21 points as the Wizards rebounded from a rough second quarter to beat the Atlanta Hawks 114-107 Sunday in Game 1 of their first-round series. My dad told me that when I was younger, 'You got one friend and your friend is Spalding.

"The second half came down to mentally locking down our reads", Adams said. He regularly gets lost on pick-and-roll coverage, doesn't seem to relish his early isolation plays the way he used to and hesitates when it comes to offering help defense. "We have to get back to the drawing board". If Russell Westbrook doesn't deserve the 2016/2017 NBA MVP Award, then he certainly deserves to share the award with the next best player; James Harden. The Rockets finished with a 31-4 advantage on second-chance points. Adams totaled just six points on six shots. "Again, that was the bigs being trash". Jerami Grant had 10 points.

Quotes of the night " As a point guard I have to try to find ways to split the defense. "I'm really excited tonight", said Tara May, who's been a fan since the 1980s. "He made the right play, it was just up to me to step up and make a shot".

The Rockets are already thinking about their next chess move. Mike D'Antoni came on board, but most are aware of the bumpy stints the coach had in the past.

Just don't be fooled: they are not the NBA's best player.

Games can not be eschewed and then rescued now vs. formidable opponents. "You have to get the next one", Gibson added.

Meanwhile, the Rockets were eighth in the league in rebounding, but just league average getting defensive rebounds.

In fact. [sighs]. OK, I've tried to avoid it, but you know what?

This is all great news for Houston's frontcourt.

The Rockets have come this far - third-best regular season record in the National Basketball Association - by riding the nightly exploits of Harden's varied skills and the wildest, craziest, three-point shootingest offense that has ever been unleashed on the league. "When they do that, I am ready", said Capela. He sets a physical baseline at the start of every game and builds from there.

When Adams laid his screen on Beverley, it nearly seemed like an Oklahoma City's Most Wanted moment. "The guy was just absolutely killing it", Watt said Monday at NRG Stadium. I don't know what they had at the half, but it was something stupid. We cleared it up a lot more, bigs and guards.

Before a sea of red within the unrestrained Toyota Center, perplexed at every turn, the Thunder wilted a fourth-consecutive time before Houston's offensive labyrinth. Westbrook finished the game with 22 points, 11 rebounds, seven assist and a plus/minus of -25. Nor do the results from the regular season in which the Rockets defeated the Thunder three times in four meetings. "Who is going to be the team that wants it more?" What's more, the first three times these teams met in the regular season, the games were decided by a combined seven points. In Houston's spread floor offense, Harden has carte blanche, room to create, to paint the ideal scoring picture. Or, if Kanter didn't fully commit to the switch on the perimeter, and found himself in no-man's land in between, Harden found a teammate rolling to the basket for one of his game-high nine assists. Horford has now scored in double figures in each of his last six postseason games. Well the answer was a more focused one, a more determined player who put a team on his back and refused to stop pushing no matter what. We didn't shoot the ball well, but we got to the paint and we finished.

"All we did is defend our home court, and that's what we're supposed to do", he said.
