Oklahoma City Thunder vs. Houston Rockets Game 3: Video Highlights and Recap

Maxwell Ogden@MaxwellOgdenCorrespondent IIIApril 28, 2013

In a continuation of the 2013 NBA playoffs, the Oklahoma City Thunder traveled to play the Houston Rockets in Game 3 of their first-round series.

The Thunder took both of the first two games in two completely different fashions. OKC dominated Houston by a score of 120-91 in Game 1, but barely escaped Game 2 with a 105-102 victory.

The true question is, how did the Thunder react in their first game without Russell Westbrook since they drafted him in 2008?

Westbrook will miss the rest of the season with a torn meniscus (per ESPN.com). This comes after a controversial play in which Rockets point guard Patrick Beverly went for a steal on a play where Westbrook appeared to be preparing to call a timeout.

Could Houston capitalize on Westbrook's absence behind former Thunder star James Harden? Or did OKC survive without its All-Star point guard?
