Thunder ground the Rockets
The Oklahoma City Thunder are now 2-0 after Russell Westbrook's latest knee surgery. The Thunder beat the Houston Rockets 117-86 to improve their overall record to 25-5. Kevin Durant led the way with 33 points and 13 rebounds but he was far from a one man show.
Jeremy Lamb came off the bench to score 22 of the 41 bench points the Thunder got in the game. Oklahoma City opened the game on a 13-0 run and never looked back. OKC shot 57 percent for the game with Reggie Jackson scoring 16 points as Westbrook's replacement in the starting lineup.
Portland is next up for the Thunder, who will host the Blazers on New Years Eve.
