    Houston's good enough at home to win one or two games. I'll say OKC in 6.

    There's a small voice in my head that keeps saying this could play out like the '06 playoffs where the Lakers went up 3-1 on the Suns but Phoenix eventually ended up winning the series. And James Harden is a big factor in that voice. I really feel that he can and will carry this team in the series to make it a lot more competitive than initial thoughts. Maybe its just me though.

    He's going to be under a lot of pressure at Chesapeake, that's for sure. A lot of it will come down to how he reacts to the pressure of playing there.

    Rockets got murdered. I'm expecting a much closer game 2. In other news...

    Delfino to the rescue of poor Pat.

    The Rockets have adjusted BIG TIME.
    Beverley had an amazing first half. Playing with grit, toughness, and energy. He's all over the game so far.
    This has been a really great first half. Hoping the Rockets can still this one!

    cmon rockets pull it off. Maybe the Thunder arent that much better than the rockets. I love the way they're hustling and playing.

    On the 3rd or so last play Rockets down only 2 why didn't Harden demand the ball? He sat there in the corner, no one came to Parsons who eventually took a contested 3, go down the other end, Durant 3 and 5 point game. Huge turn around, if Harden scores they go back and forth, instead Thunder go up 3 and 5 to close the game

    Loved the effort but still down 2-0.

    Someone needs to yank on Perkins' disgusting goatee as hard as they can and not show mercy. Freaking guy. So pissed.

    I cosign I think Kevin Martin will be the X-Factor in game 3 which I think he will go off

    lmao perkins. They could call a foul on him every play if they wanted. Gets away with blatant holds, pushes on defenders and every offensive possession, he commits illegal screens.

    say it aint so

    Russell Westbrook is going to have surgery

    Oklahoma City Thunder guard Russell Westbrook will undergo surgery in the coming days to repair a lateral meniscus tear in his right knee, the team announced today.
    Westbrook suffered the injury in the second quarter of Game 2 of the First Round of the Western Conference Playoffs.

    “Our players’ health is our first and foremost concern. The Thunder’s medical team and several specialists we consulted with determined that Russell undergo a procedure to address the issue,” said Thunder Executive Vice President and General Manager Sam Presti. “We have thoroughly discussed this with Russell. Despite being the competitor and teammate that he is, he respects and understands the decision and is committed to come back even stronger. Certainly Russell is a leader and core player for this team, but we are in the midst of the playoffs and I know other players are determined to step up and contribute. We have a resilient group of players who have always taken pride in playing as a team and that approach will continue.”
    There is no timetable set for his return.
