    Rockets Survive with 105-103 Win Over OKC

    HOUSTON (AP) -- The Houston Rockets finally found a way to close out a game in their playoff series with the Oklahoma City Thunder.

    And it allowed them to escape playoff elimination with a 105-103 win over the Thunder on Monday night.

    Chandler Parsons scored 27 points and Patrick Beverley added 16 points with point guard Jeremy Lin out with a bruised chest muscle. Houston avoided a four-game sweep in the best-of-seven series.

    honestly, I didn't think they would pull it out either. If Ibaka didn't miss that shot at the end, the Thunder would have closed it out.

    I'm nmot trying to be biased, but Reggie Jackson AND Serge Ibaka got fouled in the end. And of course, the refs ruined it.



    After all, OKC is learning a lot about playing without their teammate, especially a teammate so crucial. This loss gives Houston some confidence in their hearts, but they will have to battle 1 game @ Chesapeke.


    Hopefully:
    We learn enough in time for the second round.

    We finish the series so our players get some rest.
