Oklahoma City Thunder￼
What I learn during this￼ series.
For the Oklahoma City Thunder I have learned that a lot of their young pieces are ready to compete. (Probably because of Chris Paul’s leadership.) They got dog in them. And that’s what you need to compete in any sports!
For the Houston Rockets I have learned that small ball can be deadly￼ if they fully commit and play locked down defense!
SERIES TIED AT 2 – 2
At some point in the series the Houston Rockets will eventually have Russell Westbrook￼ back on the court.
Does he make a significant difference in this series?
Yes he can.
He is an impactful player plus he has playoff experience with James Harden.
If Russell Westbrook can provide defensive consistency and knock down his 3’s then this series will be over in 6 games.
JAMES HARDEN STOPPER 🛑
I have never seen a rookie move their feet and guess which moves the former MVP is going to do. What Dort is doing in this series is unbelievable￼.
In 4 games
James Harden averages.
Those are his playoff stats. Incredible right…. the point is that James Harden is always going to get buckets￼!
That’s what he does.
Are Harden’s buckets leading to victories?
Yes , 2.
And are his points scored in the clutch?
Not when Dort is on him.
Luguentz Dort ￼is a 21 year old undrafted rookie and he is locking down James Harden when the game really matters!
This series could go 7!
Which team will be a better matchup for the Los Angeles Lakers the Oklahoma City Thunder or the Houston Rockets￼?
