HOUSTON -- Oklahoma City coach Scott Brooks showed his team each of the 12 3-pointers Houston made in its 73-point first half Thursday night. Lance McCullers Astros Jersey . The halftime video session worked. The Rockets didnt make another 3, and were held to a franchise-low in points in the second half of the Thunders 104-92 win. Kevin Durant scored 36 points and Reggie Jackson added 23 to lift Oklahoma City to the victory. James Harden and Terrence Jones scored 16 points apiece for Houston, which had just 19 second-half points after its season-best performance in the first half -- setting an NBA record for the largest scoring differential between two halves. Houstons 19-point second half is tied for the second-fewest points in a second half in NBA history. "Ive never seen anything like that," Brooks said. "Thats inspiring." Houston coach Kevin McHale was troubled by his teams inability to build on its great first half. "We had a terrible time shooting the ball, laying it in, making simple plays," McHale said. "We couldnt sustain anything offensively in the second half. Give them credit. They got out and got after us." The Thunder used a big third quarter to erase a 12-point deficit and tie the score entering the fourth. The teams stayed within a basket after that until Jackson scored five points in a 7-0 run which gave the Thunder a 97-89 lead with about 4 minutes left. Oklahoma City stretched its advantage to 103-92 on a fast-break dunk by Jackson with 1:18 to go. Durant shook his head when asked about the vast difference in Oklahoma Citys defence after halftime. Along with shutting down Houstons 3-point shooting, the Thunder also held Harden scoreless after the break. "We were able to come down and stifle them a little bit and get them out of their rhythm," Durant said. "Theyre a great offensive team. They score the ball so quickly. I think we did a great job of just putting pressure on them." Oklahoma City was up by eight when Houstons Dwight Howard and Kendrick Perkins got tangled up fighting for a rebound. The two had to be separated and Perkins received a personal foul and they both were slapped with technicals for the scuffle. Serge Ibaka added 21 points and 15 rebounds for the Thunder. Howard had 11 points and eight rebounds for the Rockets. Jeremy Lambs 3-pointer early in the fourth quarter made it 86-85, giving Oklahoma City its first lead since early in the second quarter. The teams each scored a basket after that before both offences went silent, with neither team scoring for about a 3-minute span. Jackson ended Oklahoma Citys scoring drought with a reverse layup with about 7 minutes remaining before Chandler Parsons ended Houstons with a bucket about a minute later to cut the Thunders lead to 90-89. The Rockets had a 12-point lead with about 4 minutes left in the third quarter before Oklahoma City went on a 15-3 run to tie it at 83 entering the final period. Ibaka scored four quick points to get the spurt going and also had a 3-pointer in that span. Durant had the big finish for the run, taking Parsons off the dribble and pulling up to sink a 3-pointer at the buzzer. Durant fell backward to the court after the shot and flipped over before getting up wearing a huge grin as he was mobbed by teammates. After matching a season high with 41 points in the second quarter, the Rockets had a terrible third, scoring just 10 points, and their nine points in the fourth were a season low. The Thunder led by seven in the second quarter before Houston got going. The Rockets used a 9-0 run, powered by four points from Jones, to take a 43-41 lead with about 8 minutes left in the quarter. Harden had a nifty play near the end of that run when he hit an off-balance layup before crashing to the court. Houston capped the 41-point quarter with a 13-1 spurt to take a 73-59 lead into halftime. Parsons hit two 3s in that run and Donatas Motiejunas added a third. Durant was having a tough first quarter and had three turnovers before getting going in the last 1 1/2 minutes of the period. He scored all nine of the Thunders last points of the quarter to leave Oklahoma City up 36-32 entering the second. He had two dunks and was fouled on a 3-pointer and made all three free throws in that span. NOTES: Houstons 73 points in the first half were a season high for a half. ... McHale received a technical foul for arguing with the officials in the second quarter. Alex Bregman Astros Jersey . Paul, MN (SportsNetwork. Mike Scott Astros Jersey . With the union re-formed, negotiations with owners will resume Friday on the remaining issues that would be in the collective bargaining agreement, according to a person familiar with the plans. http://www.baseballastrosproshop.com/preston-tucker-astros-jersey/ . -- Mississippi State was crushed twice by Florida last season, once by 35 points and the other by 25.INDIANAPOLIS -- All Hakeem Nicks really wanted in free agency was a chance to resuscitate a once-promising career. He was willing to play on a one-year deal, he was willing to work out a fair price and his only significant requirement was finding another star quarterback who could get him the ball. On Friday, the former Giants receiver found his new team: Indianapolis. "Hakeem is a big, tough, and highly competitive wide receiver who knows what it takes to win," Colts general manager Ryan Grigson said in a statement issued by the team. "His big-play potential requires attention from the defence every time hes out on the field. He adds another highly talented playmaker to our offence." Terms of the deal were not immediately available, though it is believed to be for one year. Nicks was the Giants first-round pick in 2009, and became an immediate contributor. He had back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons in 2010 and 2011 and was part of the Giants Super Bowl-winning team following the 2011 season. But injuries sidetracked his career the past two seasons. In 2012, Nicks was limited to just 53 catches, 692 yards and three touchdown catches in 13 games. The numbers were marginally better last season when played in 15 games. He finished with 56 catches and 896 yards but failed too score a touchdown. Jose Cruz Jr. Astros Jersey. The Colts believe if Nicks is healthy, he can help them. The 26-year-old Nicks joins a receiving corps led by perennial Pro Bowl player Reggie Wayne, who is rehabilitating from a torn ACL, and emerging young star T.Y. Hilton. And, of course, Nicks will be catching passes from one of the NFLs best young quarterbacks in Andrew Luck. Indy was in the market for another receiver after last years free-agent flier on Darrius Heyward-Bey didnt work. And with Wayne trying to come back from his own injury, the Colts wanted another veteran to help mould a large group of young receivers. Since joining the Colts in January 2012, Grigson has been unafraid to take some calculated gambles. He traded a second-round pick to Miami for up-and-down cornerback Vontae Davis, a move that has panned out. Last year, he traded a first-round pick to Cleveland for running back Trent Richardson, a move that drew widespread scrutiny when Richardson didnt live up to the expectations of a top-five draft pick. He took a chance last year on receiver Darrius Heyward-Bye, a move that didnt work out, and he now has another injury prone former Giant to go along with running back Ahmad Bradshaw, who signed with Indy in June and re-signed this week.
