Oklahoma had one of the best start in the season, 5 wins from 5 games.Now are coming back on track after two days off and after two straight losses, from Dallas and Portland. The players are not satisfited from their performance and want to correct that stopid mistakes from that matches. Thunders got good roster, most of the players are more than quality. Sefolosha is day-to-day, maybe he will show up tonight. Durrant, Westbrook, Ibaka and the other looks to strong at the moment for Rockets. Visitors showed a lot of weaknesses during the previous games, only two wins, both at home. Four straight losses so far like visitors, all of them with big point difference. Their defence is poor, few nights ago LA Clippers scored 41 points for quarter, that is too much for one NBA team. Oklahoma knows about the power of Houston’s defence and IMO, I expect the hosts to start aggressive, to get more fast points, to make Houston to accept their game. If that happened, Oklahoma will win the first half with double-digit points difference and that’s what I will pick here.
