WATCH: Westbrook scores more points, but Harden, Rockets get the win

Russell Westbrook exploded for 49 points, going 16-of-34 from the field, including hitting a career-best eight triples.

James Harden meanwhile posted a double-double of 26 points (on 16 shots), and 12 assists.

In the end though, this was a game decided by Nene, who hit two game-winning free throws that lifted the Houston Rockets over the Oklahoma City Thunder, 118-116.

Westbrook also added eight rebounds, five assists, two steals, and five turnovers in 37 minutes. Harden meanwhile went 12-of-14 from the stripe, eight boards, a steal, a block, and six miscues.

Harden is now 2-1 versus Westbrook this season. But judging by this picture, it seems the two former teammates have no qualms with each other.
