The Rockets were unable to break their losing streak on Christmas night in OKC. Houston shot just 43% from the field, and 32% from downtown.
James Harden finished with a Double-Double after putting up 29 points, 14 assists, and 8 rebounds, but shot 3-for-11 from beyond the arc.
Clint Capela had a Double-Double as well with 19 points and 10 rebounds, but missed 3 of his 4 free throws.
Eric Gordon and Trevor Ariza put up 20 points each, but Russel Westbrook, Paul George, and Carmelo Anthony combined for 75 points, while OKC shot 54% from the field to Houston's 43%.
The Rockets move onto Boston Thursday night, where they hope Chris Paul can make his return from injury.
