HOUSTON James Harden had the audacity to act normal Wednesday night. He just came out of the shower, got dressed, gave his beard a good once over with his palm and acted like he wasn't walking away from a building he just burned to the ground.
"That's how I play," he said after Houston's 122-119 win over Oklahoma City. "If you watch, all 50 games that's how I play."
Harden scored a career-high 46 points on 19 shots to lead the Rockets (30-26) from 14 points down to beat the Thunder (39-15), his former team. He went 14 of 19 from the field, 7 of 8 from the 3-point line and 11 of 12 from the foul line, while grabbing eight rebounds and dishing out six assists over 44 minutes. He also made a half-court shot at the end of the third quarter.
"Today I had a pretty good game," Harden said.

"I don't even know what to say," Jeremy Lin said.
It took Rockets coach Kevin ...

Jeremy Lin returns to New York City Friday night and — even though his Rockets will be playing the Nets in Brooklyn — the the former Madison Square Garden exile will make his appearance at Barclays Center in a foul mood — and with a healthier heart.

Tweet Granted Jeremy Lin hasn’t been in the NBA a long time, just 120 games, but at some point during his 3,064 minutes played you’d think he would have gotten angry enough at a non-call or done something to warrant a technical foul, right? Wrong. During the Houston Rockets’ 122-119 victory over the Oklahoma [...]

Sometimes things don’t happen exactly like you expect, especially in the NBA.
1. Nets can’t beat good teams. (Four straight wins over teams at or above .500)
2. Pacers are a poor offensive team. (Drop 125 on New York Knicks)
3. Warriors are one of the more dangerous teams in the West. (Six straight blowout losses)
4. On the Rockets instead of the Thunder, James Harden will struggle...
