After a close win by OKC the series is now tied at 2-2.
There is sill no definitive date for the return of Russell Westbrook so Houston will have to find another way to try and turn the series back to their advantage.
The Rockets lots another close game in game four. Harden was very close to a triple-double but he was inefficient and that really takes away from what Houston tries to do. He is definitely not the problem but they need to be able to find some more solutions.
Erc Gordon and Danuel House Jr. both scored i the 20s and that is a good sign. Sometimes I question the shot selection of their group but that is the way they want to play. It will be more of the same for however long the series progresses.
The bench gave them next to nothing in game four. Jeff Green was a -10 for the game and Austin Rivers and Ben McLemore scored 3 points combined. They have shortened things up but they need some production there.
Game fives are pivotal. WIth Westbrook still out the Rockets might need Harden to take over a game.
Oklahoma City Thunder
Needless to say the Thunder, after being down 2-0 are back in the series. That is what a four seed vs a five seed is supposed to look like.
The Thunder are still relying heavily on their three point guard attack but in game four it was Dennis Schoeder off the bench who led the way with 30. His game is very one dimensional but he is quite the slipper scorer when he wants to be.
Chris Paul chipped in 26 but did not make a three. When he is not able to be a threat from the outside he is such easier to guard for sure. This game is critical and it is going to be determined by which players step up and which ones fade.

Free Houston Rockets vs. Oklahoma City Thunder NBA Prediction:
The spreads have been pretty much the same, around 3 points for Houston. In each game the winning team has covered the number.
I am still not sold on Oklahoma City so I am expecting Harden to rise to the occasion here and get the Rockets back in the right position in the series.
