Being down by 26 points was the largest deficit of the season for Oklahoma City, making it their largest comeback victory. Westbrook finished with 21 points, 11 assists, and 12 rebounds to tie the triple-double record set by Chamberlain in 1968. He has 22 triple-doubles on the season and 126 in his career, as he shot 8-of-21 from the floor on Saturday, but did turn the ball over 10 times.
The other streak that was extended was that of James Harden, who finished with 42 points for his 29th straight 30-point game. That is just two shy of the second-longest such streak in NBA history, as Chamberlain holds the two longest records of 31 and 65 games. Harden shot 11-of-28 from the floor, including 6-of-16 from three-point range, while also making 14 of his 15 free throws in the win.
Westbrook connected on a layup with 26.9 seconds to play to give his team the lead for good, as the Rockets missed on three-point tries in the final seconds, which allowed the Thunder to seal the game at the free throw line. George shot 12-of-22 on the night for the Thunder, as well as 6-of-14 from three-point range and 15-for-18 at the free throw line, falling four points shy of his career-high of 49 points, which was set in 2013 when he was with the Indiana Pacers. The Thunder used the third quarter to begin their rally, outscoring Houston, 42-20, in those 12 minutes to set up the thrilling fourth quarter.
The Thunder will return home on Monday night for another Western Conference showdown with the Portland Trail Blazers, The Rockets will stay home to play host to the Dallas Mavericks that same night.
