NBA scores: Oklahoma City Thunder shakes Houston Rockets

Scott Halleran

The Oklahoma City Thunder beat the Houston Rockets in the team's only game over the weekend.

The Oklahoma City Thunder rocked the Houston Rockets on Saturday by a 124-94 score as Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook each scored more than 25 on what was an efficient offensive night overall.

The win kept the Thunder in the heated Western Conference playoff race. At 23-6, Oklahoma City is just a game behind the Los Angeles Clippers, who are currently on an 17-game winning streak. The Clippers had two wins against the Utah Jazz this weekend, first beating them 116-114 in a come-from-behind win on Friday and then winning 107-96 on Sunday.

The San Antonio Spurs, who are a half-game behind Oklahoma City at 24-8, also produced two lopsided wins this weekend. On Friday, the Spurs dispatched Houston, 122-116, before they beat the Dallas Mavericks, 111-86, on Sunday.

At the top of the Eastern Conference, the Miami Heat fell twice this weekend. The Heat lost in an upset to the Detroit Pistons, 109-99, on Friday and on Saturday lost, 104-85, to the Milwaukee Bucks. The Eastern Conference's second-place team, the New York Knicks, were also upset on Friday when the Sacramento Kings' James Johnson hit a three-pointer at the buzzer to give his team a 106-105 victory.
