The Rockets are in a sad state right now, and we have a hard time thinking that they are going to be able to get off of the mat. They were beaten in Game 3 of this best of seven series, and they were beaten in horrendous fashion. Houston erased what was once a 26-point deficit with a huge second half rally, and it was able to take the lead late against Oklahoma City. A few missed free throws and a F Kevin Durant three pointer that bounced high off the rim and eventually fell proved to be the backbreaker though, as the team ended up dropping by exactly three points, the value of that miracle of a shot. G Jeremy Lin is clearly hurt to the point that he didn’t play during the entire fourth quarter with his chest injury. G James Harden took a few big time tumbles in the second half of the game as well, and he didn’t even take the final shot of the game when the team needed a three to force overtime. Meanwhile, Durant literally looks like he can take over the game on the offensive end of the court whenever he wants to. He threw down dunk after dunk with some massive drives to the lane, and every time Oklahoma City needed a basket, he found a way to get it. The Thunder aren’t going to be as bad as they were in the second half of Game 3 at any point, and as long as that stays the case, this should turn out to be a great situation for the visitors. Oklahoma City puts a stamp on this series and ends any hopes of a Houston comeback on Monday night to end the opening round.
