Ben McLemore went 4-for-7 from deep in the Rockets' 123-108 win over the Thunder in the first round of the Western Conference Playoffs on Tuesday, finishing with 14 points (5-for-8 FG) off the bench.
McLemore, along with Jeff Green, were key contributors off the bench for the Rockets on Tuesday. They were operating without Russell Westbrook (strained right quad) and needed all they could get from a variety of sources. McLemore played 24 minutes and also recorded one steal and one rebound. The Rockets looked very smooth in the resounding victory and will hope to continue their strong play in Game 2 on Thursday.
