Series moves to Houston with Thunder up 2-0

HOUSTON (AP) - The Houston Rockets could be without starting point guard Jeremy Lin when they host the Oklahoma City Thunder in Game 3 on Saturday night.

The Thunder definitely will be missing their point guard, with All-Star Russell Westbrook out indefinitely with a knee injury that will require surgery.

The Rockets hope Lin, who has a bruised chest muscle, can return for the first playoff game in Houston since 2009.

The Thunder lead the first-round series 2-0, but the injury to Westbrook, which occurred in the first half of Game 2, could change the complexion of the series.

Superstar Kevin Durant has averaged 26.5 points in the first two games. He knows playing without Westbrook will be a challenge.

He says: "I've just got to rev it up a little bit more."
