    导出博客文章OKLAHOMA CITY -- As Russell Westbrook took off, he saw Clint Capela as a mere
    obstacle to victory rather than an athletic 6-foot-10 shot blocker.In the blink
    of an eye, Westbrook uncorked a vicious left-handed hammer dunk over Capela in
    the closing seconds to help the Oklahoma City Thunder beat the Houston Rockets
    105-103 on Wednesday night.Oklahoma City led by three when the 6-3 Westbrook
    threw it down with 5.5 seconds left to put the Thunder up five.Westbrook said
    Capelas reputation -- he had already blocked three shots on the night and ranks
    among the leagues leaders -- didnt deter him.It dont matter, man, Westbrook
    said. Game on the line. If you get blocked, or you make a dunk -- its one or the
    other. Fortunately, it went in and it closed the game for us.Oklahoma City
    center Steven Adams, who isnt easily impressed, cracked a smile when asked about
    Westbrooks jam.Just happy its not me, he said. Thats pretty much like the only
    thing is `Thank goodness hes on my team. That was crazy. Honestly, he did a good
    job, Capela. Nice little bit of defense, honestly. Verticality, avoided the
    foul, and obviously, hes (Westbrook) just a really athletic dude. Just caught
    him.Westbrook finished with 30 points, nine assists and seven rebounds. Victor
    Oladipo added season highs of 29 points and 10 rebounds for the Thunder, who
    snapped a four-game losing streak.James Harden, the leagues assist leader and
    No. 4 scorer heading into the night, finished with 13 points, 13 assists and
    seven rebounds. He made just 4 of 16 shots while being harassed by Andre
    Roberson.Dre did an amazing job, like hes been doing all season, Westbrook said.
    James is a tough player, obviously, and he (Roberson) did a great job of making
    him shoot over his length. He needs to get credit for what hes been doing
    defensively all year.Capela added 13 points and 14 rebounds for the Rockets, who
    went scoreless for more than six minutes in the fourth quarter to help the
    Thunder position themselves for the win.We didnt play well, Harden said. We
    didnt shoot the ball well, and we still had an opportunity to win.Oklahoma City
    led 65-63 at halftime as Westbrook had 20 points and Oladipo 17. The shot 61
    percent before the break. The Rockets offense worked, despite just five points
    from Harden on 1-for-6 shooting.The Rockets started strong after the break, and
    a 14-5 binge put Houston up 77-70 and led to an Oklahoma City timeout. The
    Rockets stretched their lead to 11, but the Thunder pulled to 90-85 by the end
    of the period.Oladipos 3-pointer with just under three minutes to play tied the
    score at 100, then Robersons alley-oop dunk on a lob from Westbrook finally put
    the Thunder ahead.Westbrook made a free throw to extend Oklahoma Citys lead to
    three with 28 seconds remaining. Houston missed an opportunity when Harden and
    Trevor Ariza failed to connect while Ariza was open in the corner. That set up
    Westbrooks game-clinching dunk.I still wasnt able to make a couple of passes,
    Harden said. Normal game, just didnt make shots, especially down the stretch
    when we needed to. That was it.TIP-INSRockets: G Patrick Beverley, one of
    Oklahoma City fans most hated players, was out with a left knee irritation. He
    hasnt played this season. ... Eric Gordon shot 5 for 20 from the field and
    scored 13 points.Thunder: It was the second straight home game in which the
    Thunder faced a core member of its team that reached the 2012 NBA Finals. Serge
    Ibaka scored 31 points and made the game-winner for Orlando on Sunday. ... The
    Thunder shot 75 percent in the first quarter to lead 38-32. ... Oklahoma City
    made 13 of 14 free throws.STAT LINESOklahoma Citys starting guards, Westbrook
    and Oladipo, combined to make 21 of 38 shots. Houstons starting guards, Harden
    and Gordon, shot a combined 9 for 36.STAR POWEROklahoma wide receiver Dede
    Westbrook, who is starting to gain traction as a Heisman candidate, attended the
    game. He has 68 catches this season for 1,254 yards and 14 touchdowns in 10
    games. The eighth-ranked Sooners will play at No. 10 West Virginia on

    With Parker having a quiet game for once, Nicolas Batum and Boris Diaw provided
    the scoring as France won its first major basketball title by beating Lithuania
    80-66 on Sunday. It was a victory that ended a decade of frustration for Parker
    and a talented French generation, which lost the final against Spain two years
    ago and took bronze in 2005.

    . - Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie never doubted he would bring back
    coach Dennis Allen for a third year despite back-to-back 4-12 records. NEW YORK
    -- The NBC commentator criticized for calling the coach and husband of Hungarian
    swimmer Katinka Hosszu the guy responsible for her turnaround said Sunday it is
    impossible to tell Hosszus story without crediting him.But after some online
    critics suggested Dan Hicks commentary on Saturdays telecast was sexist, he said
    that with live TV, there are often times you look back and wished you had said
    things differently.You did it -- not your husband was among the social media
    messages posted following NBCs coverage of the 400-meter individual medley.
    Hosszu won the gold medal in a rout, shaving two seconds off the world
    record.Hicks said he was painting as accurate a picture as he could of Hosszu
    and Shane Tusups relationship. The swimmer has told him that she credits her
    American-born husband for improving her strength training, intensity and
    confidence, which was shattered when she lost the same event four years ago, he
    said.It is impossible to tell Katinkas story accurately without giving
    appropriate credit to Shane, and thats what I was trying to do, Hicks
    said.ddddddddddddHicks made reference to Tusup as NBCs cameras caught video of
    him shouting and cheering from the stands after Hosszus win. In a replay shortly
    after, NBC showed a portion of the race in a split screen with pictures of the
    demonstrative Tusup.It was an amazing experience to share this moment with
    someone who I love, Hosszu said in Rio.Hicks said on the air that Tusup and his
    influence on his wife were no secret to people in the swimming community.It can
    be very, very harsh, Hicks said on Saturdays broadcast. In fact, its been a
    little disturbing to some of the other swimmers who have observed it.While
    Hosszu has acknowledged the tough love, she said hes warm and fuzzy when its
    husband-and-wife time, Hicks said.But he has turned her into a tiger in the
    pool, Hicks said. ' ' '
