Is Dwight Howard a really good player or a great player?
Let The Beat Build✊
Lance Stephenson is a known flopper, but enough with the "he slapped himself!" stuff. His arm clearly snapped back from running into someone
Okc needs to put salt on the roads. They are straight ice.
Watching the hunger games catching fire!
Kevin McHale on the Thunder-Rockets scrum tonight: "Is that called contentious now in the NBA? I thought that was a little catfight.”
Scott Brooks attempted to explain the incident with Beverley: http://t.co/d2CypwNWFh
Anthony Morrow: "That was an ugly game. The ugliest basketball game I've been a part of offensively."
Scott Brooks on the altercation between Beverley, the ref and himself: http://t.co/OGO7hqUOc5
Brooks on Jackson game-tying heave attempt: "We should have gotten a better look. But these are experiences [Reggie's] learning on the fly."

Scott Brooks opens with, "That was a, uh, physical game."
The Thunder's eighth loss came on... -2012-13 season: Jan 7th -2013-14 season: Jan. 7th -2014-15 season: Nov. 16th
Rockets drop the Thunder to 3-8, 69-65. Thomas and Jackson both with 15, Ibaka 10. Thunder shot 29.4%, Rockets shot 28.8%.
Thunder fall 69-65 in a game that featured a lot of emotion and not much offense. OKC now 3-8 on the season.
Make no mistake: That was Jackson going rogue for a hero shot, not Scott Brooks drawing up some 35-foot prayer.
Reggie Jackson wanted to take that 3 way, way too badly.
Steven Adams just got Trevor Ariza for a critical tech with 1:59 left.
Steven Adams is checking back in.
With the score and the general heated nature of it, feels like Kelvin Sampson and Eddie Sutton should be on the sidelines tonight.
Both teams shooting 28 percent.
For a game that's 55-54 with 7:43 left in the fourth, this thing has gotten some kind of entertaining.
After a lengthy review, all the refs ended up with is a technical foul on Sebastian Telfair. Alright then.
Brooks ran right to Bill Kennedy and in reference to Beverley was saying "Don't let him do that sh--!" Beverley then went in on Brooks.
Lotta chirping between Thunder and Rockets right now. Kevin Durant repeatedly to Dwight Howard: "You're a pussy"
Things are boiling over in OKC. Scott Brooks and Pat Beverley having serious words.
Durant and Howard are talking a whole lot to each other right now.
Nick Collison's foul upgraded to a flagrant one on Dwight Howard. Grabbed him by the arm and pulled him down.
Hard to imagine Dwight Howard's trash talk landing all that hard when he keeps doing it through a smile.
Tied 51-51 heading to the fourth in OKC. You game-high scorer is ... Lance Thomas with 15.
Houston's third quarter: 9 points, 3/18 FG, 1/10 3FG. Thunder-Rockets tied 51-51 heading to the fourth.
Thunder held the Rockets to nine points in the third quarter. It's 51-51 as we go to the fourth quarter in Oklahoma City.
Rockets scored nine points in the third quarter. If you recall, they had that horrible second half against OKC last season with just 19.
Official word on Steven Adams is he took a blow to the head. There is a chance he return.
Steven Adams took a blow to the head and he's questionable to return.
Steven Adams took a blow to the head, per Thunder. A chance he returns.
Somehow, the Thunder have taken the lead against the Rockets, 51-49.
Lance Thomas' 15 points are five more than anyone else tonight. Weird game.
Fist lead of the night for the Thunder comes on a Lance Thomas baseline jumper, of course. OKC up, 51-49 with 2:14 left in the third.
Some lead actors may be out, but Thunder-Rockets remains chippy. Double technical on Kendrick Perkins and Patrick Beverley.
And amazingly the Thunder trails by just two when he finally gets one to fall.
Double technical call on Kendrick Perkins and Patrick Beverley for a little too much talking.
Reggie Jackson's first FG of the night comes mid-way through the third quarter. He's 1-of-7, but OKC down only two.
Reggie Jackson's first field goal comes with 5:54 left in the third.
Energy has cranked up. Thunder playing great defense. Offense still a problem, though. Houston lead cut to 47-43.
Lance Thomas with a game-high 13 points.
Had Beverley done that to Jackson they would have showed it a billion times.
Fox Sports Oklahoma replays suck
Refs reviewing an elbow from Jackson on Beverley as a flagrant foul, but upon first glance, they should be checking if it's a flagrant flop.
Lance Thomas has a team-high eight shot attempts for the Thunder -- James Harden has eight shots attempts.
Rockets lead the Thunder 42-33 at half. Thomas with 7, Telfair 6, Adams with six blocks. Thunder shot just 9-36 from the floor.
Fan: "You can shoot all you want. Come to L.A. We got rings." Westbrook: "Get yo ass out of here and go back to L.A."
Lakers fan six rows behind the scorer's table screams at Westbrook: "Russ, come to L.A.!!" Russ starts shaking his head no.
Steven Adams with six blocks in the first half.
Dwight Howard just fumbled his contact twice. Funniest part. He couldn't find it once it hit the floor.
Steven Adams with eight blocks the past six quarters.
The Thunder has 29 points on 30 shots.
Trevor Ariza is doing a fantastic job on Reggie Jackson, which thereby is completely detonating OKC's offense. Can't get anything initiated.
Scoreboard must be broken in OKC. Says the Thunder are only down 24-19 after a quarter, despite it feeling like they're already down 40.
Thunder 4-of-18 shooting in the first quarter. But 11 made FTs keeping them competitive. Houston up 24-19.
Thunder have now doubled their free throws attempts in the first quarter (12) than they had in 53 minutes against the Pistons.
Lance Thomas is currently the Thunder's leading scorer with 7 points. Remember, he's Harden's man. (Noteworthy: He is just 1-5 shooting.)
Watching Perk play is always fun because it's like watching a live Phantom Cam.
With 5:56 left in the first quarter, the Thunder have attempted six free throws, the same number they did in 53 minutes against Detroit.
Lance Thomas 0-of-4 in the early minutes. James Harden's on him, but still probably not the guy you want leading your team in FG attempts.
Lamb made his first shot
It says a lot about what Kevin McHale thinks of James Harden's defense that he's started the game on Lance Thomas.
Lance Thomas guarding James Harden to start. He's a natural power forward.
Boos for Patrick Beverley. Mixed reaction for James Harden. But really not that loud for either. Snow has thinned crowd a bit in OKC.
Many more cheers than boos for Harden in OKC.
About to join NBA TV to talk a little Thunder.
Patrick Beverley back from a hamstring injury and in the starting lineup vs OKC tonight, per Kevin McHale.
Same 10 players available for the Thunder tonight, same starting five. Perry Jones and Andre Roberson still out.
Same 10 available for the Thunder tonight. Same starting lineup: Reggie Jackson, Jeremy Lamb, Lance Thomas, Serge Ibaka, Steven Adams.
First bit of snow for widow. Need to put her up soon
