Wizards rally to go up 2-0 - NBA Playoff Summaries

HOUSTON (AP) — The Houston Rockets and Washington Wizards each have two-games-to-none leads in the first round of the NBA playoffs. The Rockets overcame a historic triple-double by Russell Westbrook, while the Wizards survived a rugged game against Atlanta.

Westbrook produced the highest-scoring triple-double in playoff history, but it wasn't enough for Oklahoma City in a 115-111 loss to the Rockets. Westbrook scored a postseason team-record 51 points and also had 13 assists and 10 rebounds. However, he shot just 4 for 18 in the fourth quarter as the Rockets clawed back from a double-digit deficit.

James Harden pumped in 35 points, including a 3-pointer during a 10-0 run that put the Rockets ahead 114-104 with 1:22 remaining. Eric Gordon chipped in 22 points on 8 of 14 shooting and hit three of Houston's 11 3-pointers.

Game 3 is Friday in Oklahoma City.

In other playoff action:

In Washington, Bradley Beal scored 16 of his 31 points in the fourth quarter to push the Wizards past the Hawks, 109-101. Beal nailed a 3-pointer with 38 seconds left to seal the win after Washington trailed by four entering the final period.

John Wall delivered 32 points and nine assists in a game that featured 55 fouls.

Paul Millsap scored 14 of his team-high 27 points in the third quarter, six coming in a 13-0 run that put the Hawks ahead 74-67. Dennis Schroder had 23 points for the Hawks, who entertain the Wizards in Game 3 on Saturday.

Golden State also took a 2-0 series lead despite playing without Kevin Durant because of a calf injury.

Stephen Curry shot just 6-for-18 but contributed 19 points, six rebounds and six assists as the Warriors slammed Portland, 110-81. JaVale McGee provided a spark off the bench in Durant's absence, scoring 15 points on 7 of 7 from the field.

The Warriors also got 12 rebounds, 10 assists and six points from Draymond Green.

The Trail Blazers were just 7-for-34 from beyond the arc and were never in the game after falling behind 33-17 in the first quarter.

Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum combined to miss 25 of their 34 shots and score just 25 points.

Game 3 isn't until Saturday in Portland.
