This will be a "he who strikes first strikes last" series.

Both teams play little to no defense, both are fast break teams and both love to strike fast.  We could see constant back to back to back fast break scoring.


The problem is the Thunder have an answer for Lin and Harden.  But the Rockets have no answer for Ibaka.  That's the problem for them.


So either team can blow the other out but the Thunder should win in about six.

"I've been second my whole life,” the Oklahoma City Thunder star told SI. “I was the second-best player in high school. I was the second pick in the draft. I've been second in the MVP voting three times. I came in second in the Finals. I'm tired of being second. I'm not going to settle for that. I'm done with it.”

I hope that fire carries him and his team to a championship this year. I don't want to see the Heat win it. I wasn't rooting for anyone outside of the Lakers, but now I wanna see the Thunder get it and Durant get Finals MVP. Besides, he's the nicest guy in the NBA.

Much more even game thus far but the Rockets are gonna have to ditch the plan of leaving Jackson wide open if they want to win.

Seriously that's the least you can do in celebrating especially after a dunk like that.    It's the playoffs!! They should be allowed to show some emotion.

I swear if Harden didn't focus so much on flopping and more on finishing he'd put up much better numbers and be a much better player.   His reliance on flopping holds him back.

Harden showing why he's not a max contract player right now.

But even so.

Rockets are in it.. but they may have lost Lin to shoulder injury.  If that's the case this series is over in 5.

If Harden continues to need 25 shots to get 25 points then this series is over in 4

Lin played a half and was the teams leading rebounder with 3, and three point shooter with 3.

Since Lin has gone out... that hasn't changed...  No one on the team has 3 assists or 3 three pointers.

That is a BAD sign.

Rockets on the comeback and OKC proving why they are considered a "front running" team and the general idea that "if they aren't blowing you out after 3.. you have a chance"

Proving correct thus far.

Rockets up by 2.

Harden misses clutch free throws that would cut the lead down.

And then constantly passes is instead of shooting his open shots his teammates get him and he's getting wasting the shot clock.

All the airs of a guy that just doesn't know how to come big as the "main" option in the playoffs.

LeBron syndrome before last year.

There's a reason the Thunder didn't give him a max contract.   

Maybe next year Harden, if you shave the beard, stop focusing on flopping and tune your all around game more.

Rockets only have one option.


Take a quick three, hope it goes in, foul them, live with whatever free throws they make, and then come down and hope for a tie/win.
