 Houston’s James Harden was at the center of a heated first-half incident that got Thunder backup center Hasheem Thabeet temporarily ejected. Thabeet and Harden exchanged words after Thabeet blocked two consecutive shots by Harden. Thabeet then bumped into referee Marc Davis and pushed him away, resulting in an ejection. But Davis went to instant replay and downgraded the punishment to a single technical foul.

Utah’s Marvin Williams fell hard in a scramble for a rebound and hit his head on the court. He left the game for good with what team officials called concussion symptoms.

 The 3-pointer Spurs forward Tim Duncan hit at the end of the first half was just his second make beyond the arc in three seasons.
