Nene's late free throws lift Rockets over Thunder, 118-116

The Houston Rockets weren't happy to have squandered an 18-point lead, leaving them tied with Oklahoma City with just seconds left on Thursday night.

But they were proud of the plays they made at the end of the game to hang on for the win.

James Harden scored 26 points and Nene hit two free throws with 0.7 seconds remaining to lift the Rockets to their sixth straight victory, 118-116 over the Thunder.

"There's going to be some close games in the postseason where we'll have to figure ways to close them out, and it isn't always going to be us making shots and it being perfect," Harden said. "We're going to have to get stops sometimes."
