NBA Playoffs: Houston Rockets at Oklahoma City Thunder
May 01, 2013TV Network - TNT
Houston avoided a sweep by holding off the Thunder in Game 4. The Rockets overcame a 38 point night by Durant, while playing without Lin and with Harden having 10 turnovers. This is the second game the Thunder have played without Westbrook, so they are still figuring out the best strategies for handling his absence. This game is back in Oklahoma City, so the Thunder have a chance to close the series at home, as long as the Rockets don't continue to find ways to win.

The Thunder completely dismantled the Rockets in the first game, winning by 29. Houston was held to 36% shooting, including a horrendous 6-for-19 night from their leading scorer, Harden. Oklahoma City on the other hand, shot better than 50% and got fantastic output from Durant, Ibaka, and Westbrook, and not just offensively. They all rebounded well, made steals, and drew charges, which means the Rockets have a lot of work in this one, if they are going to have a chance to even things up.
