ROCKETS CRUSH THUNDER 118-87 AS JAMES HARDEN OUTPLAYS RUSSELL WESTBROOK

James Harden‘s Houston Rockets landed the first blow Sunday in a heavyweight postseason showdown with fellow MVP candidate Russell Westbrook‘s Oklahoma City Thunder.

Harden and the Rockets defended home-court advantage in Game 1 at the Toyota Center with a straightforward 118-87 victory.

Harden led the way with 37 points, nine assists and seven rebounds, and Patrick Beverley effectively played the role of supporting actor with 21 points and 10 rebounds. Westbrook did as Westbrook does and challenged for a triple-double with 22 points, 11 rebounds and seven assists, but it wasn’t enough to steal a game on the road.
