Russell Westbrook scored 29 points, grabbed 15 rebounds and handed out five assists in the Houston Rockets’ 105-120 loss to the Los Angeles Clippers on Thursday night.

Moreover, the Rockets will be without Westbrook for Saturday’s game at Charlotte. Point guard will sit out “due to planned maintenance.” Eric Gordon will also miss the game due to a sore right knee, which he seemed to re-aggravate on Thursday.
