HOUSTON —For 20 minutes Saturday night, the Thunder seemed to be sleepwalking.
The defense was dreadful. The offensive was all over the place.
The Thunder just didn't seem interested in performing its principles and instead played Houston's preferred pace.
But when Oklahoma City woke up, boy, was it a thing of beauty.
A four-minute surge was all it took for the Thunder to run the Rockets out of their own gym and secure a 124-94 victory inside the Toyota Center.
