The Oklahoma City Thunder spoiled the return of Russell Westbrook by beating the Houston Rockets 113-92. Westbrook scored 34 points. He was a league MVP and two-time scoring champ for the Thunder before being traded to the Rockets last summer for Chris Paul and draft picks.

Danilo Gallinari led the Thunder with 23 points and 11 rebounds. Shai Gilgeous-Alexander added 20 points for Oklahoma City.
