The Houston Rockets are arguably the best team in the NBA this year. The Rockets have won 15 straight, with their most recent win coming on the road against the Boston Celtics, 123-120.
The Oklahoma City Thunder are 5-2 over their last seven games. If OKC wants a secure playoff spot, they must play consistent.
The last time the Rockets and Thunder took the court against each other, was Christmas Day.
The Thunder came away with the win, 112-107. Look for this matchup to be close like the first one.
The Houston Rockets are one of the top three teams in the NBA this season. The Rockets last beat a tough minded Celtics team by three points on the road. Eric Gordon was light’s out for the Rockets. Gordon kept hitting three after to keep the Rockets on top.
Gordon shot 8 of 13 from the floor, and 7 of 11 from three point land in the win. His clutch shooting from three is what gave the Rockets the win. Tonight, the Rockets will be up against a formidable opponent in OKC.
James Harden, Chris Paul and Clint Capella have gone 34-1 when all three of them start together this year.
Houston has won 15 straight games, and some are wondering if the Rockets are better than Golden State this year. Only time will tell, but in my opinion they are not. The Roster is fully loaded, but not playoff tested together.
Playing OKC on the road, always brings up memories for James Harden.
Look for Harden to get going early in this game. In their only meeting against Oklahoma City this year, Harden dropped 29 points on 7 of 18 shooting from the floor.
The Rockets shot 42 percent from the field and 32.4 percent from three in the five point loss.
If the Rockets are going to win this matchup, look for a better shooting night from James Harden and expect the Rockets as a team to shoot better from the floor in the rematch.
Oklahoma City Thunder
The Oklahoma City Thunder are one of the most talented teams in the league this year, and could also be contending for the title at seasons end. The Thunder are currently the 7th seed in the West, and only sit one game above the Nuggets. The Thunder are 21-10 on at Chesapeake Energy Arena this year.
Oklahoma City had won three straight before getting beaten by the Trailblazers, 108-100. Russell Westbrook dropped 30 on 12 of 31 shooting from the field. Paul George added 21 points, but that was not enough.
Yet again, the Thunder took the lost on the road to a playoff team
On the defensive side of the court, the Thunder are one of the best defensive teams in the NBA. Oklahoma City is allowing 103.8 points per game this year. Good enough to rank the Thunder 8th in points allowed this year.
The Thunder are 24-7 on the road this season.
