Houston Rockets vs. Oklahoma City Thunder: Game 5 Postgame Grades and Analysis
Mark D. Smith-USA TODAY Sports

And we're headed back to Houston.

James Harden and the Houston Rockets took down Kevin Durant and the Oklahoma City Thunder 107-100 for a second straight victory, forcing a Game 6 at the Toyota Center.

The Rockets got off to a hot start and took a seven-point lead into the half. They came out gunning in the third quarter, increasing their edge to 12 points heading into the fourth.

Oklahoma City began hacking Omer Asik midway through the fourth in hopes that a slew of missed free throws would pave the way for a comeback. Asik held his own at the line, though, and the Thunder were unable to erase the deficit.

No NBA team has ever come back to win a best-of-seven series when falling behind 3-0, but after two convincing victories, the Rockets now have a legitimate opportunity to become the first.
