End of Game
The Rockets scored 27 second-chance points on 18 offensive rebounds despite playing lineups with one big (Omer Asik or Greg Smith) for all 48 minutes Wednesday. The Rockets' starting lineup of Asik, Patrick Beverley, James Harden, Jeremy Lin and Chandler Parsons had not played a minute of time together all season prior to Game 2.
The Thunder outscored the Rockets 21-10 in transition in Game 2 and are averaging 22.5 transition points per game in the series. Houston is shooting 50.0 percent in transition in the first two games and made 2 of its 10 transition field goals in Game 2.
James Harden has made 2-of-18 (11.1 percent) shots at least 15 feet from the basket in the series. During the regular season against the Thunder, Harden made 13-of-24 shot attempts from at least 15 feet, including 11-of-20 on 3-pointers.
James Harden scored 27 points on drives to the basket Wednesday, and his teammates scored 8 points on 3-of-5 shooting when he kicked it out on his drives. In Game 1 of the series, Harden drove 11 times and the Rockets scored just 8 points on those drives.
The Thunder scored 14 points on 4-of-7 shooting in clutch time (last 5 minutes, score within 5 points), with scoring from 5 different Thunder players. During the regular season, Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant combined to score 77.6 percent of Oklahoma City's points in clutch time. But on Wednesday, it was jumpers from Thabo Sefolosha and Serge Ibaka that put the game away.
