Patrick Beverley didn't play in the first meeting between Houston and Oklahoma City. He's playing tonight and making an impact when covering Russell Westbrook. Against Beverley, Westbrook is 1-5 with two turnovers, an offensive foul and four points.

Royce Young ESPN Staff Writer 

Westbrook is well on his way to a seventh straight triple-double, with 10-7-7 at half against the Rockets. He rediscovered one of the Thunder's best offensive weapons from last season, pick-and-roll lobs with Steven Adams, who has 17 and 9 rebounds.
