The three-seed Houston Rockets beat the hell out of the six-seed Oklahoma City Thunder in Game 1, cruising to a 118-87 victory in front of a raucous Toyota Center crowd. OKC was able to hang around in the first half, but the Rockets left them in the dust in the second half. Houston outscored OKC 59-33 in the third and fourth quarters, as their high-octane offense was simply too much for the Thunder.
Most NBA pundits think that it’s a two-man race for MVP between James Harden and Russell Westbrook. Even though I believe that Westbrook is 100% the MVP, I have to concede that Harden outplayed Westbrook in Game 1. He poured in 37 points on 13-of-28 shooting from the floor while grabbing seven boards and dishing out nine assists.
Westbrook filled the stat sheet in Game 1, as he finished with 22 points, 11 rebounds, and seven assists. But he did have a dreadful shooting night, hitting just 6-of-23 from the floor and 3-of-11 from three-point range in a very inefficient performance. Westbrook wasn’t the only Thunder player to struggle with his shot, though. As a team, OKC shot 37.0% from the floor, while Houston hit at a blistering clip of 49.5%.
