Two fast paced Western Conference foes go at it Friday night as the Houston Rockets head into Oklahoma City to take on the Thunder.
The Thunder are looking to build another winning streak as they’ve rattled off 2 straight wins. Houston on the other hand looks to rebound from their most embarrassing loss of the season as they fell to San Antonio.
The Rockets ran off 3 straight wins over the Bucks, Mavs, and Pelicans and it looked like this team was heading in the right direction.
However, they ran into a pissed off and fired up Spurs team that was itching to get back on the floor. San Antonio was embarrassed themselves against the Warriors, but took out those frustrations in a 130-99 win over the Rockets.
Houston trailed by 21 at half and got outscored in every quarter as they allowed the Spurs to shoot 57% from the field.
The Rockets themselves shot just 38% and went only 8 of 30 from behind the arc. Their starters really had no production as Harden had 20 points, but failed to make an impact on the boards or assist wise. Howard had just 13 points as those were the only 2 starters in double figures.
The Rockets got the Thunder earlier this season in Houston 110-105.
Oklahoma City Thunder
Oklahoma City has just 3 losses this month and look to cap January off with 3 straight wins.
The Thunder have knocked off the Knicks in overtime and followed that up with a win at Minnesota to get back on track after falling to Brooklyn during the winter storm on the east coast.
With their back to back wins, the Thunder have kept pace with the Warriors and Spurs, but still sit 8 games out of first and 5 out of 2nd.
Oklahoma City will be playing their next 3 at home, which bodes well for them as they are a brilliant 21-5 SU this season in OKC. The Thunder’s last home loss came earlier this month against Sacramento, but Kevin Durant was not in the lineup.

The Thunder are once again picking up steam.
With Houston tending to struggle against good opponents, this is a solid spot for the Thunder. Oklahoma City is much more talented and with Westbrook having the ability to slow down Harden, this is a mis match for the Rockets.
