Oklahoma City:

Courtney Lee and rookie Chandler Parsons each scored 21 points, Patrick Patterson blocked Serge Ibaka's point-blank putback attempt in the final 2 seconds, and the Houston Rockets charged back from an 11-point deficit in the final 3 minutes to beat the Oklahoma City Thunder 104-103 on Tuesday.

Lee drilled a 3-pointer from the left corner with 15 seconds left to complete a 13-1 run in the final minutes for Houston that was aided by a technical foul against Oklahoma City All-Star Russell Westbrook.

Kevin Durant led the Thunder with 28 points but missed a turnaround jumper from the top of the key in the closing seconds after fumbling the ball and recovering. Ibaka grabbed the rebound but his follow try was swatted from behind by Patterson.
