Rockets vs. Thunder score update: Thunder take 57-45 lead into halftime

The Oklahoma City Thunder pulled away from the Houston Rockets a bit in the second quarter of Wednesday night's game, taking a 57-45 lead into the locker room at the half. James Harden, making his return to OKC for the first time since being traded, has had a dreadful game, stretching a Rockets team already missing Chandler Parsons.

Harden shot 0-8 in the first half, scoring three points while adding two rebounds, two assists and a steal. He also turned the ball over twice and missed both of his three-point attempts. Leading the way for Houston was their frontline, with Patrick Patterson scoring 14 points (10 of which came in the first quarter) and Omer Asik dropping in 12 points to go along with seven rebounds.

The Thunder, meanwhile, were powered by Kevin Durant, who scored 17 points on 6-10 shooting. Serge Ibaka chipped in with 12 points, six rebounds and five blocks and Kevin Martin added 10 points and three assists off the bench.
