2017 NBA Playoffs 1st Round GT: (3) Houston Rockets vs (6) Oklahoma City Thunder
 
Both teams have clinched their respective seeds so this match-up is a lock.

Who do you got in this series?

Houston will comfortably win. Westbrook can't keep up with that offense.

Sadly, this. The two teams which OKC struggles the most are the Rockets and the Warriors, mostly due to their 3pt spam heavy game. Simply impossible for the thunder to keep up. Our only chance is if harden has his classic yearly playoffs meltdown.

If you actually intend this to be the series thread, then make a more detailed and real thread title, like ISH has had forever. This is chat room shit

Houston massively overachieved when they were like 31-6 or whatever it was

OKC and Houston both have very similar records in the past 3 months or so like .550 for both. Oladipo and Kanter missed alot of games and Taj and Doug got to the team late too. The last matchup wasnt close but all the others were

Russ is the best player in the series by a good amount, Har_en is a playoff choker and Russ clutch play can win it combined with the great defense of the rest of the cast.

and OKC is massively overachieving by Russ having 50 pt games, 40 pt TD's and game winners legit every second game the past 3 months...

Russel won atleast 10/15 games with late game heroics this season. OKC losing vs the Rockets unless playoff Harden

I'm gonna go with OKC in 6 or 7. Lou Williams shrivels in the playoffs and so does Harden. I would be surprised if the Rockets offense is anywhere near as productive in the postseason, especially from 3. Meanwhile, Adams and Russ generally play great in the postseason, so while I expect a close series, I expect OKC to take it.

Might as well create 3 more threads, because all Western matchups are set (despite Utah and LA fighting for homecourt)

westbrook is better than harden, but harden just has the better supporting cast, coaching staff, you name it. houston in 5 sadly, because westbrook deserves to advance.

Russell might have to actually play defense then.
