Russell Westbrook's sixth triple-double of the season helped the Thunder defeat the Houston Rockets 116-108 on Friday night.

Westbrook finished with 26 points, 14 assists and 10 rebounds. It was the 25th triple-double of his career.

Kevin Durant had 33 points and 12 rebounds and Enes Kanter scored 20 of his 22 points in the second half for the Thunder, who have won 10 of 11 overall and six straight at home.

James Harden had 33 points, seven rebounds and seven assists and Corey Brewer added 17 points for the Rockets. Houston shot 38 percent overall and made just 9 of 39 3-pointers and 27 of 43 free throws.

Houston's Dwight Howard was ejected in the third quarter after picking up his second technical foul, and Kanter scored all 20 of his second-half points after that.
