KEY GAME INFORMATION
OKLAHOMA CITY: GUARDS: RUSSELL WESTBROOK can do whatever he wants inside the arc and will continue to be a shoot-first point guard . . . JAMES HARDEN will likely keep coming off the bench, but he'll also keep playing starter's minutes . . . THABO SEFOLOSHA is OKC's best perimeter defender. But his role won't become more prominent until the postseason . . . ERIC MAYNOR should be just about all the way back from his torn ACL. When healthy, he's one of the league's best backup point guards . . . DAEQUAN COOK will see limited minutes as a three-point specialist . . . REGGIE JACKSON's role will shrink to near nothing if Maynor is healthy. FORWARDS: KEVIN DURANT continues to do it all, and has done nothing but steadily improve each season . . . SERGE IBAKA is obviously an elite shot-blocker, but he continues to get lost in space. He's made some strides as a pick-and-roll defender, but that weakness is why he doesn't play 30 minutes per night . . . NICK COLLISON will continue to steal a lot of Ibaka's minutes because he defends the pick-and-roll better, and because he draws so many charges, he's almost as good in help situations . . . PERRY JONES III is an incredible athlete, but needs a year or two to learn the game . . . LAZAR HAYWARD is back as a 12th man. CENTERS: KENDRICK PERKINS will continue to start, but is a part-time player. The Thunder are often better with a small lineup. While Perkins is a bruiser he is too easy to exploit as a defender in space . . . COLE ALDRICH could be ready for a slightly bigger role off the bench . . . HASHEEM THABEET is a reclamation project. There's a sliver of long-term hope, but he won't help this year.
HOUSTON: GUARDS: Houston has gutted its roster, and this is JEREMY LIN's team now. Coach Kevin McHale will use the same pick-and-roll offense he used with Goran Dragic, and Lin should do what he did in New York a year ago . . . KEVIN MARTIN is on the trade block. As long as he's in Houston, he'll be in and out of McHale's doghouse, especially seeing that he's not in the long-term plans . . . JEREMY LAMB should push Martin for minutes early. Lamb will have some defensive issues, but he's a cagey scorer who should mesh well with Lin . . . CARLOS DELFINO replaces Chase Budinger as the team's most reliable marksman from three-point range . . . TONEY DOUGLAS' defensive ability puts him in the running for a rotation spot . . . SHAUN LIVINGSTON can give them 12 to 15 minutes a night . . . Rookie SCOTT MACHADO, an outstanding passer, will back up Lin . . . GARY FORBES will have trouble finding minutes. FORWARDS: CHANDLER PARSONS was a nice surprise a year ago. He's a fifth option offensively but does the hustle/energy thing well . . . 2011 first-rounder DONATAS MOTIEJUNAS is a skilled 7-footer who fits with Lin. Expect him to grab a starting job by midseason, but he can also play center when required . . . This might be the year PATRICK PATTERSON makes an impact. His game is limited, but he can rebound and score around the basket . . . ROYCE WHITE is a 270-pounder with point guard skills. He needs the ball in his hands though, which is why he's not a great fit with Lin in the starting lineup . . . TERRENCE JONES has a tweener skill set. At this point, he's better suited for the second unit . . . Speaking of 'tweeners, MARCUS MORRIS looks to be nowhere near contributing. CENTERS: OMER ASIK earned his reputation as a defensive stud in Chicago, and he'll get a little more offensive freedom in Houston. He is quite foul-prone though, and he'll be tested on the free-throw line early and often . . . His backup, GREG SMITH, has more fouls (17) than points (14) in his 69-minute NBA career.

*Thunder-Rockets Preview* =========================

By NOEY KUPCHAN STATS Writer

Oklahoma City (22-6) at Houston (16-12), 8:00 p.m. EDT

While the Oklahoma City Thunder didn't have much trouble getting past former teammate James Harden and the Houston Rockets last month, a repeat performance could be tougher.

The Thunder try to avoid losing three straight on the road for the first time in two seasons Saturday night against a Rockets team that's piled up home wins lately.

After failing to work out an extension with Harden, Oklahoma City (22-6) surprisingly sent the reigning Sixth Man of the Year to Houston (16-13) as part of a six-player deal just days before the season started.

The Thunder got the best of the Rockets in the teams' first meeting since the trade, winning 120-98 on Nov. 28 behind 37 points from Kevin Durant and 23 from Serge Ibaka. Harden, meanwhile, finished with 17 on 3-of-16 shooting, though his head may have been elsewhere after Houston stopped in Minnesota earlier that day to attend the funeral of coach Kevin McHale's daughter.

"It's crazy," Durant said afterward. "Seeing (Harden) before the game ... in a different uniform is a little different. We've moved on past it, man. We're happy to see him, glad he's doing well out there in Houston but we wanted this win bad."

That victory was one of 12 straight put together by the Thunder, who've looked a bit shaky since. After suffering back-to-back six-point losses at Minnesota and Miami, Oklahoma City needed overtime to beat Dallas 111-105 at home Thursday. Durant led the way with 40 points, the second time he's scored at least that many in his last four games.

Not including three straight losses in Miami during last season's NBA finals, the Thunder haven't dropped three in a row on the road since February 2011.

The Thunder, winners of seven of 10 in this series, pulled out consecutive road victories over the Rockets before coming up short 96-95 in their last visit Feb. 15. The franchise has dropped 12 of 14 in Houston dating to 2005, when it was still located in Seattle.

Houston hasn't had much trouble protecting its own court of late. The Rockets have won 10 of 12 at home, including four straight by an average of 16.2 points.

They entered Friday riding a season-best five-game overall winning streak but couldn't keep it going at San Antonio, falling 122-116 despite 33 points from Harden. Chandler Parsons and Jeremy Lin scored a combined 45, but the three top scorers each committed five of the team's season-high 24 turnovers.

The Rockets also struggled to stop the Spurs, who shot 57.1 percent overall and scored 41 points in the first quarter.

"I think it was the start of the game," McHale said. "We had to fight back. I was proud of the guys and how they battled back."

While Houston leads the league with 105.7 points per game, it's giving up 103.1 to rank 29th.

In addition to trying to contain Durant, the Rockets could have their hands full with Ibaka, who had 19 points and a season high-tying 17 rebounds Thursday against the Mavericks. He's averaging a career-high 8.5 boards - 12.3 over his last six games.

"He's been on a rebounding tear," coach Scott Brooks said. "When he plays like that - aggressive on the glass - it seems to open up the other parts of his game and also the rest of the (other) guys' games."

Kevin Martin, acquired in the Harden deal, is averaging 15.8 points and will surely be looking to come out strong in his first return to Houston. The Thunder are 14-1 when he scores at least 16, and he had 17 against the Rockets last month.
