Watch The NBA Playoffs

"Defensively you become more aggressive; that's the biggest part". The versatile 6-foot-9 power forward has found his way since being traded from Chicago and has emerged one of Oklahoma City's few consistent offensive weapons alongside Russell Westbrook in the playoffs.

CITY (AP) - A person familiar with the situation tells The Associated Press that the National Basketball Association is investigating an incident between Houston Rockets guard Patrick Beverley and an Oklahoma City Thunder fan.

"We should have more news tomorrow", Rivers said.

"We just gotta make plays, make the right decisions", Westbrook said, when asked what happened to his team in the fourth quarter. "Go back to your training, your follow through, the small steps that got you to where you're at and just have confidence". That's a little bit of a reoccurring theme, is that it takes us a little while to get going. He has provided experience and versatility to an already stacked frontline that includes emerging young players Steven Adams and Enes Kanter.

Perimeter shooting aside, it also comes down to be ready from the outset.

The NBA MVP may be for the regular season, but it is what candidates do in the playoffs that truly matters. So much for that great start in the first quarter. He's stubborn in a very, very positive way.

In Wednesday night's Game 2, Westbrook was 4 of 18 from the floor in the fourth quarter as the Thunder let yet another lead slip away. He iced the game with a pair of free throws with 5.3 seconds remaining and finished with seven rebounds and 10 assists. That simply won't cut it. Focusing on Ariza, he's shooting just 33.3 percent from the field and has yet to hit a 3-point field goal in the series. Oklahoma City hung on for the thrilling win in front of their home court faithful. Oklahoma City went away from him late, and Houston rallied for the victory.

The Thunder pulled to within one game of the Rockets in their first round series with a 115-113 win in Oklahoma City on Friday night behind another triple-double from Russell Westbrook. No player has missed as many shots (14) in one quarter of the playoffs in 20 years.

The Bulls didn't have a single assist in the third quarter as they struggled to get their offense going. He elaborated, "We didn't make a lot of shots".

Gibson did damage inside and out and punished the Rockets with his mid-range jumper. "He's tough to guard on that block too".

The Thunder led for much of the game thanks in part to Donovan's altered rotation. "They will just remember which team was able to win".

"There's no question there is a balance there, but I feel like on missed shots, we're a team that needs to look in transition". We gave them the early lead and we had to fight our way back and we did. In Game 2, they were following a cruise control blowout in Game 1 and were playing in the comfort of the Toyota Center. "He's genuine and very straightforward", Donovan said of Westbrook.
