Kevin Durant scored 41 points, tying his playoff high, and had 14 rebounds as the Thunder needed every second of Game 3 to beat the Rockets 104-101 in their first playoff test sans Russell Westbrook. Up 26 points in the second quarter, the Thunder once again blew a lead and the Rockets powered back to tie the game at 91 on a Chandler Parsons 3-pointer with just under 6 minutes remaining. James Harden finished with 30 in the loss. Just imagine if he was still playing for the Thunder.
