Rockets Win Streak Hits 17 Games With Win Over Milwaukee

"Just stay positive. Got a lot of games left, nights left to play basketball", Westbrook said. Small-market doom was imminent.

But with greater ball security in the second period (two turnovers), the Rockets found greater offensive efficiency. You have to be really solid.

Though Westbrook seems content with the way things played out-Harden was traded to the Houston Rockets and Durant signed with the Golden State Warriors-he expressed fond memories of their time together in an interview on Tuesday.

"I thought the difference in the game was the three-point line and the free-throw line".

OKC showed some signs of life in the fourth quarter but was only able to get as close as eight with less than a minute remaining. Where is Andre Roberson when you need him?

While the Thunder hold a winning record in their seven games following the break, their claim to a top-four seed has been replaced by a fight to simply make the playoffs.

The Rockets exploded for 122 points, hitting 17-of-33 from downtown (51.5 percent) in the process.

"It's easy to say we were supposed to be together for the rest of our careers, but it didn't play out like that", Durant explained. Let's get to some notes on the loss. It was a mixture for the Thunder as to why the giveaways racked up - some of it was playing with a slowed pace, attacking in isolation too much and some careless passing.

Aaron Gordon scored 28 points and made a driving, go-ahead layup with 5 seconds to play for the Magic, who trailed 106-97 before scoring 10 straight points.

Rookie Jordan Bell, however, gave the Warriors an injury scare after suffering a sprained right ankle and an X-ray has been scheduled. He still gets them.

But there's no denying the destructive, franchise-crippling impact of a potential lottery trip. The Thunder, who are seventh in the West and who Houston bounced into a tie in the loss column with ninth-place Denver, have plunged in the other. The Thunder are operating with a nearly invisible margin for error. CJ McCollum scored 19 points for the Blazers.

The second-longest win streak in Rockets history hit 17 games Wednesday night with a 110-99 win over the Milwaukee Bucks at the BMO Harris Bradley Center.

What's more, they struggled to dispatch league strugglers Dallas, Orlando, Phoenix and Sacramento. Try as they did, Westbrook and George combined for just four free throw attempts in the game.

Of course, when the Thunder made big offseason moves, it sure seemed like it would become an improved defensive team.

The upcoming schedule will test this team, with a brutal stretch starting March 16 likely determining the Thunder's fate. They're also now only 19-18 against teams currently over.500.

Antetokounmpo led the Bucks with 30 points. The question is, which streak is more impressive?

It isn't perfect, of course.
