The Thunder stayed out of the storm at the trade deadline. If you need stars to win it all they are still in contention though
Houston shuffled things around a little but for the Rockets it is really about health. If they are fully healthy at the right moment they might still be the greatest threat to Golden State.
Oklahoma City Thunder
The Thunder have won two in a row, but against light competition and this is a weird spot of a stand alone road trip. To Houston of all places.
OKC is almost whole but they are still awaiting the return of Andre Roberson to the lineup. He would have been useful against James Harden for sure.
Russell Westbrook is averaging a triple double again. His rebounding and assist numbers are up from what they have been the last two seasons while his scoring is down. I am not going to find fault with that.
The greatest beneficiary is running mate Paul George who is also having the best season of his career. All of his numbers have never been better, not just scoring.
The Thunder are probably going to want to try and slow things down a little but they can run with Houston. This should be a fun game to watch too.
The Rockets acquired Iman Shumpert but I am not sure he is going to have any sort of significant impact from here on out. Once they get Clint Capela back that will be the best thing for this team and their depth and championship prospects.
Harden’s impressive run of 30+ point games continues but he only matched his average in their last game with 36. It was an easy win at Sacramento and now they have a short home stand against OKC and Dallas. This is the one they want to get for sure.
There was a Gerald Green siting against the Kings, as he scored 25 points. It is nice to get that kind of production as Chris Paul is still not quite where they want him to be yet.
