Westbrook posted a triple-double of 51 points, 10 rebounds and 13 assists. Their bench averaged 39 points per game in the regular season, fifth in the National Basketball Association and tops among playoff teams, though their reserves play an average of just 17.3 minutes to rank 26th in the league.
WASHINGTON - In a rough-and-tumble, foul-filled game, Bradley Beal took over in the fourth quarter with 16 of his 31 points, including a key late 3-pointer, helping Washington beat Atlanta for a 2-0 lead in their Eastern Conference first-round series.
Gordon delivered the decisive shot with 1:48 remaining, drilling a 28-footer off a Harden pass to extend the lead to eight and give Houston a 2-0 series lead.
Harden scored 20 points in the second half and the Rockets' bench added 24 second-half points. On Wednesday, he totaled 51 points, 10 rebounds and 13 assists. When asked about how he would grade his stat line, the NBA MVP candidate responded, "I don't give a f- about the line".
Trump on Pats, 'No team has been good this long'
Tom Brady isn't visiting the White House with the New England Patriots on Wednesday, April 19th. There were other reasons for player absences, however.
Come Friday night, the adoration of some 18,000 fans will be showered not on Harden, but on Westbrook, as this Western Conference playoff series moves north, and the Thunder can use all the help it can get.
Russell Westbrook scored 22 points, grabbed 11 rebounds and dished out 7 assists.
Stealing a win on the road would have been huge, but if the Thunder can take their positives from game two and build on them, I would not be surprised if the Thunder even up the series in OKC. "Whatever the game gives you, that's what you take". "We lost." Ouch! But while Russell was hard on himself for letting the team go home with a 2-0 series hole, fans were going insane on Twitter over his fantastic accomplishment! "Russell Westbrook had a 50 point triple double tonight.... clearly displaying how overrated the 50 point triple double can be". Combined, he converted on 5 of 7 shots overall and on 4 of 5 3-point attempts.
Both will have to knock down shots when they count the most to get back in the series, especially Oladipo. Westbrook went just 2-of-11 from downtown as Oklahoma City lost, 115-111.

And by the way, those new energy sources fit much better with the mandate of the Environmental Protection Agency that Mr. Lead exposure, even at low levels, can cause nervous system damage and lowered IQs.
Harden admitted he was passive at times in the first half before changing his mindset in the second.
The Thunder led by three entering the fourth quarter and scored the first five points of the period, highlighted by a 3-pointer from Doug McDermott, to make it 94-86.
With FuboTV you can watch Thunder vs Rockets on PC, Mobile, Chromecast, Roku, Apple TV as well as many other devices. Gordon and Williams did it Wednesday, and Josh Smith and Corey Brewer did it in 2015 against the Mavericks, weeks before they would spark a Game 6 rally past the Clippers. Harden made 18 of 20 free throws.
Los Angeles stormed to a 12-point lead in the first quarter, reeling off the kind of dunks that earned the team's Lob City moniker years ago. With one of the best ball defenders in the league in Patrick Beverley relentlessly following Westbrook around the court, the rest of the Rockets defense was given time to rest and get their energy back on defense.

The announcement was less about Woods' health and future, though, than the newest course design for his company, TGR Design. The TGR Design firm has four courses open worldwide and several other courses are in various stages of construction.
The Rockets also just got 4 from Trevor Ariza, though he spent large chunks of the second half trailing Russ, so his performance is bit more excusable than Anderson's.
