The most anticipated first round math up is between the Oklahoma City Thunder and the Houston Rockets, but unfortunately the first round didn’t live up to those expectations.
In the first game of the series the Rockets were the more dominant team from start to finish. The Rockets won that game 118-87.
Oklahoma City Thunder
The Oklahoma City Thunder surprised a lot of teams with how well they have played this year, but if they continue to play like they did in game one, this could be a very short series for the Rockets.
The struggles started with Russell Westbrook. He did have 22 points but only shot 6-23 from the field including 3-11 from three. He needs to have a much better game in this one if the Thunder want any chance.
The Thunder also need to find a way to slow down James Harden. He had a huge game one and they can’t let that happen again.
On the other side of this match up is the Houston Rockets and they really looked like the dominant team in game one, and they have to feel like they can win this game pretty quickly.
The Rockets hot start all started with James Harden. He had 37 points, nine assists, and seven rebounds. Now he probably won’t have as big of game in game two, but they still need him to outplay Westbrook.
One of the biggest surprises for the Rockets in game one was how poorly they shot from behind the arc.
They only shot 33 three pointers, which is much less then the 50+ that the Rockets want to shoot in a game.
