>> mike: beverley, all fired up. a couple of big buckets here in the fourth. as you said earlier, mark, you look at capela. and goudelock, mcdaniels. the young guys, they were down by 12 in the third quarter, looked like they weren't ready for a comeback. the youth and energy got them right back in the game. anthony morrow will inbound. the referee checks, says, let's go. dallas on the verge of a victory this afternoon. so this win, even more important. adams, rebound. morrow, fouled by capela. on a three-point attempt. capela has just fouled out.
capela, an excellent game. his stats, nine points, four rebounds. and six blocked shots. >> jeff: he was terrific. if i'm oklahoma city, i'm going to make all three, and grab howard as the third free throw is in the air, to make him shoot the free throws at the other end. >> mark: it's called taking advantage of the rules. >> mike: morrow, not taking advantage of the free-throw line opportunity. capela fouls out for the third time this season. capela, only 21 years old. >> jeff: he's come so far. they've done a great job here with him in houston. >> mike: capela, whose parents
are from angola and the congo. but he was born in switzerland. high school years in paris and france. now, in his second year in the nba in houston. morrow hits 2 of 3. and j.b. bickerstaff is going to use one of his time-outs. six-point game, 25.1 remaining. it's usually a lot of time. but the thunder, out of time-outs. >> mark: imagine if capela talked about getting the basketball. no, he's impacting the basketball game. and the ball is finding him. off the stellar play making ability of harden, but not just that. defending, finishing, crashing the defensive boards. energy, enthusiasm, and execution. he's had an impact on the basketball game, and kept his team's playoff hopes alive.
>> mike: howard, getting in some foul trouble in the fourth, but capela accesteps in and does th job. there are stretches where they look so good, and could beat anybody. but stretches where the energy isn't there, and the body language is not right. it's been a strange season for them. >> jeff: yes. but j.b. bickerstaff going deep into his bench to find mcdaniels, goudelock, finding energy. they were just playing ball versus worrying about who has the ball. >> mark: and deserves a lot of credit. he could have stayed with the older guys, but he made the right changes, and it gave them a chance to win the ball game. >> mike: mcdaniels' defense, a part of it as well down the
stretch. michael beasley comes back in. mcdaniels now sitting down. terry is as well. getting some free throw shooters in there. ibaka will guard the inbound. thunder, going for the steal. and durant, called for the foul. >> mark: tough call. looked like james harden, using that wisdom again to grab kevin durant. >> mike: and it's away from the play foul. >> jeff: one shot, and the ball out of bounds. >> mike: yup. >> mark: really, that's harden grabbing the arm of kevin durant. >> mike: he's so good at that. that's what kevin durant was trying to say. so, it will be the one free throw, and then possession again. >> mark: the toughest guy, maybe in the history of the game, to referee. with the contact that happens,
isolation, pick and roll in the seams. a lot of times, he gets fouled, no question. but there are a lot of times where he creates the contact. >> mike: harden, now with 39. gets it. and roberson, grabs him. that's after the inbound. that's why it was away from the play, because the ball hadn't been inbounded. now, harden, with a chance to get to the 40-point mark. >> mark: people say it works for him. but it also works against him. i guarantee referees look at the film, and say, i missed that call. and they're going to look at the film, and say, i didn't give them that call, the same amount of times. >> jeff: i think there's no doubt that despite his high free throw attempt numbers, they could be higher. >> mike: well, he's got 40 today. 11 of 13 from the free-throw line. 9 assists. >> jeff: and some knucklehead
will post on youtube when he doesn't guard one time. no, seriously. instead of posting every spectacular play the guy makes. >> mike: you admit, sometimes his defense is poor. >> mark: he's a great player, and he can play for me any day of the week. >> mike: morrow, in and out. westbrook banks in the follow. seven-point game, with 11.3 remaining. and the thunder, still battling. more free throws to wrap it up. howard, engaging some of the fans. j.b. bickerstaff, urging his team all afternoon. play better defense. boy, he got it in the fourth.
>> mark: one thing you need to look at if you're okc, it's a pattern of losing ball games when you have the lead going into the fourth quarter. you need to find a way to fix it. >> jeff: and despite the individual confidence in themselves, the team confidence, to be able to execute under pressure, it can take a hit when you continually lose leads. >> mike: westbrook trying to draw the foul. gets it to waiters. waiters throws it down. six-point game, 5.7 remaining. thunder not giving up. and a foul on beasley. you would think the thunder, the way they're playing, this game is meaningless to them. they're going to be the third spot in the west. but still fighting. >> jeff: but the chance to improve, the chance to grow.
into being what, they're feeling good about their chances to win it all. and tonight, the turnovers, to me, are the big problem. when they play with high turnovers, they have 20 tonight so far. no team can withstand that against the great teams in the west. >> mike: beasley hits those. this is james harden. with another huge game against his former team. westbrook lost it. that will do it. a much-needed victory. fourth-quarter come back for harden and the rockets. harden, 41 points, 9 assists. continues to put up staggering numbers. and j.b. bickerstaff's team, able to get the win. kevin durant had 33. westbrook, an assist shy of a triple-double. dallas winning. and houston winning. utah, right now, 38-38.
so, the rockets, right now, a half-game back of the final playoff spot in the east. harden is with lisa. >> lisa: james, you guys went on a run in the last 6:00 that really sealed it. what sparked it? >> it's win or go home. literally. we're fighting for a playoff spot, so every game and every minute and every possession counts. we need a win every game, and tonight was big. >> lisa: how were you able to keep kevin and russell from damaging you? >> well, it's a team effort and our guys did great. >> lisa: what impressed you about capela today? >> he comes off the bench, brings excitement to the game. it's his first year, all he knows is play hard.
and that's what we need. a really good game tonight. >> lisa: congratulations. mike? >> mike: 41 points in 43 minutes for harden. such an important game for the houston rockets. there's the final score, rockets, 118, the thunder, 110. abc world news tonight coming up next except on the west coast. for mark jackson, jeff van gundy, lisa salters, our director and crew, mike breen saying thanks so much for watching here on abc. home of the nba finals.
