Round One in the battle of NBA MVP candidates certainly went to James Harden. The Houston Rockets scored an easy 118-87 victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder in Game 1. Triple-double king Russell Westbrook will need a much better performance in tonight’s game at the Toyota Center to upend Houston.
A 2-0 deficit is never easy to overcome, and the Thunder are desperately trying to avoid that hole. Oklahoma City will be making plenty of adjustments to change the course of Game 2. The Thunder did a good job defending Houston from the three-point line, but struggled in the paint, giving up a whopping 62 points and 31 second chance points.
Leading the charge for the Rockets was none other than Harden who scored a game-high 37 points. Despite an off shooting night from beyond-the-arc, Harden was able take advantage around the hoop. The Thunder will need to find more answers other than just Westbrook, who shot just 6 for 23 from the floor.
Including the regular season, Houston now owns a four game winning streak over the Thunder and would like to extend that streak at home tonight. Another triple-double from Westbrook would definitely be a big boost for OKC in this series.
Now with Houston and Oklahoma City ready to do battle, let’s take a look at all the ways to watch Game 2 of this series tonight.
