It took the Thunder three quarters of basketball to finally solve the riddle of the Rockets, but in the end, they were able to get the job done and pull away for a 29-point victory with a very impressive second half in Game 1. Interestingly enough, it was F Kevin Durant or G Russell Westbrook that really put up the big time numbers, rather F Serge Ibaka (17 points) and G Kevin Martin (16) that really stepped up. It also helped that G Thabo Sefolosha, G Reggie Jackson, F Nick Collison, and G Derek Fisher all scored either eight or nine points as well. What’s scary for Houston is that that wasn’t nearly the best game that we’ll see the Thunder play in this series almost certainly. However, we do think that this game is going to fly past the number due to the fact that the Rockets should get some more offense in this game. They only shot 36.3 percent from the floor and 22.2 percent from downtown in the game, and that obviously isn’t going to cut it here in the playoffs. These two teams can both light it up, as we saw in the second quarter when there were 62 points put up between these two. Expect to see a lot more like that in this one, as there will be at least 220 on the board by the time this one is finished.
