The Rockets (45-38 SU, 41-41-1 ATS, 41-42 O/U) are looking to bounce back after getting crushed in Game. 1. The #8 Rockets have lost three in a row and four of their last five. The #1 Oklahoma City Thunder (61-22 SU, 50-31-2 ATS, 37-44-2 O/U) have won five of their last six games. The Thunder dominated Game 1 without a huge game from Kevin Durant. Russell The problem for the Rockets is power forward Serge Ibaka, who scored 17 points on 7-of-11 shooting. The Thunder also held star guard James Harden to 20 points on 6-of-19 shooting. The difference between these teams is defense. The Rockets attempt to defend, while the Thunder play defense. The Rockets allow 102.7 points per game and Oklahoma City allows 96.4 points. They are really clamping down defensively as they now realize that that's the best way to get back to the Finals. Houston will have troubles again scoring 100 points on the road. The Rockets travel to Chesapeake Energy Arena in Oklahoma City at 7pmET in the second game of the first round of the NBA Playoffs.
