The Rockets (53-28) visit the Thunder (47-33) tonight.
The Houston Rockets are currently in 3rd place in the Western Conference with their record of 53-28. They are just 1 game behind the Denver Nuggets as they come into tonight’s matchup against the Thunder. With any luck they could sneak past the Nuggets and take 2nd place just in time for the playoffs. They have had a strong run in the last 10 games having suffered just 2 losses in that time and they are currently on a 6 game win streak. Holding the team together is one of the top players in the league James Harden. Harden is leading the team in scoring with an average of 36.1 ppg. He is also grabbing 6.6 rebounds and making 7.6 assist, which is nothing to sneeze at. Following Harden is center Clint Capela as he has been all season long. Capela is averaging 12.7 rebounds per game which is impressive. Last but not least Chris Paul comes in with an average of 8.2 assists and 15.5 points per game.
Tonight’s hosts, the Oklahoma City Thunder are sitting proudly with a record of 47-33 and have the 6th in the West. They are just 9 games off the lead and are currently on a 3 game win streak although they have only won 5 of the last 10 matchups. With the way things have been going over the last few months it will be a tough ride for the Thunder as they hit the playoffs. Tonight’s game will be a preview of what we can expect to see moving forward in the post season. Paul George is the scoring leader with an average of 28.1 ppg and 2.2 steals and he is also averaging 8.1 rebounds and 4.1 assists. The guy that everyone feels was cheated out of a championship over the last couple of seasons is Russell Westbrook. Westbrook is averaging 23 points, 11 rebounds and 10.7 assists per game. Let’s not forget that he’s the guy that finished the regular season with a triple double average recently.
