CBS Sports


Article Summary:

The Saturday night national TV showcase this week did not disappoint, as the Houston Rockets escaped with a 111-110 overtime win over the Boston Celtics in one of the most thrilling games of the season.

Russell Westbrook led the Rockets with 41 points, eight rebounds and five assists, while Jayson Tatum continued his 30-point streak with a 32-point, 13-rebound effort. At the time, his ferocious putback slam late in the fourth seemed like it would be the exclamation point for the Rockets’ comeback win, but ended up a bit overlooked due to Brown’s heroics. He’s averaging over 30 points in the month and entered the game on a three-game 30-point scoring streak.
