The Houston Rockets cruise to victory versus the Oklahoma City Thunder, 128-108.
No Russell Westbrook? No problem says James Harden and the rest of the Houston squad as they showed their supremacy against OKC particularly from the three-point distant, an offensive strategy that helped them finish at number four in the Western Conference.
Harden’s hands are definitely playoffs ready where he dropped 37 points that go along with 11 rebounds.
In the absence of his backcourt partner, Westbrook, Harden found scoring support from Jeff Green and Eric Gordon who scored 22 and 21 points respectively.
Danilo Gallinari led the Thunder in their scoring attack with his 29 points while Chris Paul teased triple-double outing with his 20 points, 10 rebounds, and nine dimes.
Game 2 of the Thunder and the Rockets is scheduled on August 21 at 3:30 AM (PHI time).
