    Paul George said it took a fiery halftime discussion to help the Oklahoma City Thunder overcome the largest deficit they've seen all season.

    "We just knew we had to have a better second half," George said. "Being down that much at the half, that's not the team we are. We know this team very well and we knew that wasn't us. So we had to come in here and talk and just light a fire under this team and we did that."

    George scored 45 points, Russell Westbrook matched the NBA record with his ninth straight triple-double and Oklahoma City overcame a 26-point deficit to beat the Houston Rockets 117-112 on Saturday night.
