Here are the highlights of the Game 6 Western Conference Quarter-Finals match between the Houston Rockets and Oklahoma City Thunder which was scheduled on September 1, 2020 (Local Time).
OKC still alive and kicking in their best-of-seven series versus Houston after securing the Game 6 victory, 104-100.
Probably one of the busiest people in the NBA these days is Chris Paul serving as the president of the players association. Yet, when it comes to the basketball floor while wearing the Thunder jersey, he’s all business.
Chris Paul With The Dagger
Paul converted several clutch shots in the fourth quarter where both squads are fighting to make a lead as well as gaining momentum. The man who is known as “CP3” had his biggest moment when he was able to knock down a contested three-pointer against the out-stretched arms of Rockets big-man Robert Covington.
Paul delivered 28 points along with his seven rebounds. Danilo Gallinari added 25 points who iced the game after nailing his two clutch free-throws to put OKC ahead with four points.
If Paul is sizzling, former Thunder guard Russell Westbrook struggled in the final period particularly in the most important moments of the game.
Westbrook tried a pull-up jumper which ended to an air-ball then he committed a turnover which could possibly a game momentum shifter.
In consolation, Westbrook had a much better outing compared to Game 5 where he made 17 points. James Harden led all scorers with his 32 points.
Game 7 between the Houston Rockets and the Oklahoma City Thunder will resume on September 3, 2020 at 9:00 AM (PHI time).
