Set an Email Reminder for NBA Playoffs: Oklahoma City Thunder at Houston Rockets
Start Time: Apr 29, 2013 09:30PM (Eastern)
The Thunder have lost Westbrook for the remainder of the season, so it was up to the rest of the team to step up, with most of the pressure being on Durant. He came out and did exactly what he had to, scoring 41 and picking up 14 rebounds to lead Oklahoma City to a Game 3 win, and a 3-0 lead over the Rockets. Harden led a strong comeback for the Rockets, but in the end, Durant hit a 3-pointer to take the wind out of Houston. It seems unlikely that the Rockets could be swept, but that is the position they are now in, and a huge game is what is needed to force a game 5.
