Adams and Kanter have to play better.

Instead, Beverley popped back up, stayed in the game, and knocked down back-to-back three-pointers just a few minutes later.

Beverley had the last laugh, though, finishing the game with 21 points and 10 rebounds, while Adams had an otherwise quiet outing, scoring six points and grabbing five boards.

Recast The Revenant, and put Beverley in Leonardo DiCaprio's place.

Per SynergySportsTech.com, Beverley was the primary defender on 13 plays.

Beverley was blazing from the start, and his 3-for-4 first-quarter shooting helped carry the Rockets as Harden scuffled from the perimeter and the charity stripe. You can tell he enjoys being the guy who will challenge anyone about anything, whether that's an opposing point guard or a media member in a postgame interview.

The Arizona State product joined former player Nate Archibald as the only players in National Basketball Association history with at least 2,000 points and 900 assists in a single season - and Archibald averaged 10 more minutes than Harden when he achieved that feat in 1972-73. "You can't be premature about it, otherwise they do what they do".

It'll be interesting to see how we respond to a rowdy playoff crowd but if I know like I do now, that will be no problem for the Rockets.

"If they change it, we've got to counter what they do". They've learned that even on a down shooting night, they can trust their centers to get them quality baskets down low, and they've seen Beverley's ability to frustrate the Thunder's main weapon. It ain't chess. It's checkers, man.

Harden went for 37-7-9 with just 2 turnovers, and he will rightly get most of the ink. But if you challenge Beverley, he will respond in kind. There's not much debating that Beverley outdueled Westbrook. He stopped doing that after being slammed by the pick, but his defense didn't let up.

No. 4: Harden, Rockets win round 1 of MVP fight that's already over - James Harden wanted no part of the MVP race that he insists is already over. But on the other end, Beverley leads the charge. We cleared it up a lot more, bigs and guards.

They shot 49.5 percent from the field, out-rebounded the Thunder 56-41 and although the didn't shoot all that well from behind-the-arc, 10-for-33 for 30.3 percent - this team found a way to win. Once he returned on November 17, the Rockets finished the year at No. 14 in defensive rating.

Game two of the series is Tuesday at the Garden. "I was setting there on the sidelines getting fired up, wanting to get in the game". That happened several seasons ago, when Beverley inadvertently injured Westbrook when trying to steal the ball when a timeout was about to be called.

Russell Westbrook's struggles in Game 1 against the Houston Rockets certainly haven't affected his confidence. Don't worry - they're both up for it. Another 14.8 came in second-chance points, often the result of Steven Adams or Enes Kanter taking advantage of a defense that had collapsed down to contest a Westbrook miss.
