Oklahoma City Thunder v Houston Rockets Live
Even though Kevin Durant and Jeff Green already missed several games, the Thunder did not slow down at all and rallied to an impressive 10-4 record. Thus, the Oklahoma City Thunder will be looking to extend their five-game winning streak when they face Yao Ming and the Houston Rockets at Toyota Center on Monday at midnight GMT.
Given the fact that the Rockets thought they would be ready for a championship run with Yao Ming back on the floor, Houston’s performance certainly has been a big disappointment up to this point. Having lost 10 out of 13 games, Houston has been one of the worst teams in the first month of regular season action and failed to show any progress whatsoever. Especially the Rockets’ defensive efforts have been very poor as they allowed a whopping 109 points per game so far. Likewise, off-season addition Courtney Lee had very little impact and put up just 7.2 points and 1.8 rebounds in limited minutes off the bench. In fact, the only bright spot has been forward Luis Scola who averaged 22.1 points, 9.5 rebounds and 2.2 assists in 13 appearances. Therefore, the Rockets will most likely have to elevate their level of play considerably to avoid another defeat versus the Thunder on Monday night.
