Here’s all you need to know about this entire series. The Thunder went 50-8 SU and 43-15 ATS this season in games in which they scored 100+ points. Do you really think that Houston is going to hold OKC under 100 points in any game in this series? If the Rockets do it once, we would be tremendously impressed, but we just don’t see how it is going to happen when push comes to shove. F Kevin Durant and G Russell Westbrook are a bit of a rested team, while the Rockets had to fight right down to the bloody end of the season, failing in their mission to get the No. 6 seed, and instead falling all the way down to the No. 8 when push came to shove. This is an angry Oklahoma City outfit that has a heck of a lot to prove down the stretch of these playoffs, as the Thunder really want to not just get back to the NBA Finals, but to ultimately win them as well to give Durant and Westbrook their first rings. This is certainly the more experienced team, and it is a team that is going to prove that it has the ability to wipe the floor with these Rockets very early on. Game 1 is going to be a romp for sure.
