Harden and Westbrook Performance Went Opposite Directions as Rockets Crushed OKC


In the battle of the two MVP candidates, James Harden and Russel Westbrook had a lot to prove to the world and against each other as this series might help in determining who the rightful MVP is this year.

OKC started nicely in the first quarter leading the game at 29 -27.  The Rockets, however, was on steady ascend since the first quarter while the Thunders showed weariness as the game went on.

OKC scored  29 in the 1st, 25 in the 2nd, 20 in the 3rd and 13 in the last quarter. Their performance was dwindling down and the game went out of their hands.  The Thunders as a team had a measly field goal percentage at 37%.  Two of the main guys of OKC was just out of their game.

Victor Oladipo only had 6 points with 8% (1/12) field goal percentage. On the other hand, Westbrook almost had a triple-double with 22 points, 11 rebounds, and 9 turnovers. Looks like he had a great game but not really. His field goal was 26% (6/23).

Both Oladipo and Westbrook were shutdown.

Credits have to be given to the backcourt of the Houston Rockets, who not only played great defense but was shooting the lights out against the struggling Thunders.

James Harden scored 37, while Patrick Beverly scored 21 points.

The final score 118 - 87, Rockets won game 1.
