Russell Westbrook went 0-for-8 from the field in the second half Friday against the Houston Rockets, but still finished with a triple-double. After scoring 20 points in the first half, Westbrook switched gears in the third and fourth quarters, dishing eight dimes to finish with a line of 26 points, 14 assists, and 10 rebounds in the Oklahoma City Thunder's 116-108 win.

It was Westbrook's sixth triple-double of 2015-16 and the 25th of his career. The Thunder are 21-4 in his career and 6-0 this season when he records one.

Kevin Durant scored 33 and grabbed 12 rebounds for Oklahoma City, while James Harden led the Rockets with 33 points of his own.

Harden became only the third player in the last 30 years to score 30-plus points in four consecutive games against his old team. The others were Shaquille O'Neal and Tracy McGrady.

The Thunder have now won 12 of their last 14 games.
