The Oklahoma City Thunder come into this game with all the momentum behind them after being down 0-2 in the series and willing their way back to tie it up now 2-2. In Monday’s Game 4, Oklahoma City gave up 23 three pointers to Houston, but still managed to get the victory due in large part to a career playoff high 30 points from their point guard, Dennis Schroder.
Oklahoma City is 7-2 against the spread in their last 9 games against Houston and the total has gone over in 6 of the Thunder’s last 8 games.
The Houston Rockets come into this game in desperate need of a huge bounce back performance.
In Game 4, James Harden lead the team with 32 points and 15 assists. Eric Gordon and Danuel House Jr both had an impressive night scoring 20+ points, but it just wasn’t enough. The X factor in this game will be the Rockets bench who was outscored by the Thunder’s second unit by a 43-13 margin.
Rockets coach Mike D’Antoni told reporters Tuesday that Westbrook is day-to-day with his right quadriceps injury and he would not rule him out for the rest of the series. Westbrook is averaging 27.2 points, 7.9 rebounds and 7.0 assists this season for Houston, so him on the court could be the difference off the series.
The oddsmakers had the Rockets as -525 favorites to win the series before the game 4 loss, which dropped it down to now -185 favorites.
Houston is 3-6 against the spread in their last 9 games against an opponent in the Northwest Division and the total has gone over in 4 of the Rockets last 6 games against an opponent in the Western Conference.
