Rockets rule out Russell Westbrook for Game 5 vs. Thunder

Another Scoring Title For Harden

NBA: Rockets still unsure when Westbrook will return as Houston star sits out Thunder opener

The Thunder seemed to have fallen in defense, their zone defense was no longer the same, and in attack, in which only Chris Paul appeared scoring 9 of the 13 points converted. If he's good to go, he'll join Houston in their bid to stop a surging Oklahoma City Thunder team that's won the last two matchups.

Houston has leaned heavily on a small lineup since the trade deadline, making up for what it lost in rim protection by switching relentlessly and wearing opponents down on the perimeter.

A difference of 5.9 points separates this matchup's over/under (225 points) and the average total points bet in Thunder's games (219.1 points) this season.

Oklahoma City Thunder 117 (Dennis Schroder 30, Chris Paul 26, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander 18, Steven Adams 12), Houston Rockets 114 (James Harden 32, Eric Gordon 23, Danuel House 21, Robert Covington 14, PJ Tucker 11, Jeff Green 10).1Q: 35-37; HT: 60-60; 3Q: 92-93. Houston could really use Westbrook's services now that this series has tightened up.

In the first two games of the series, Schroder and Paul combined to average 26.5 points and 39.7 percent shooting from the field. The Rockets led 93-80 before Schroder made a 3-pointer and Houston's Austin Rivers was called for a foul away from the shot. "He's a good player".

Down 2-0 in the best-of-seven Eastern Conference first-round finals series, the Thunder prevailed 119-107 after streaking away in the extra five-minute period. "Those are shots we normally take". Maybe these were some that we could have played off the catch and got a better shot. Now, it has been revealed by reporter Jonathan Feigen that Westbrook will, indeed, be missing time.
