The Rockets defeated the Thunder in Oklahoma City in Game 4, 113-109, on Sunday behind a vintage performance from Nene Hilario (28 points, 10 rebounds). For whatever reason, attendance isn't great and nobody seems to show up on time, even for postseason games involving Russell Westbrook of the Oklahoma City Thunder and the town's very own James Harden.
The Rockets have a 3-1 series lead and can advance to the second round of the playoffs with a win against the Thunder Tuesday night.
It shouldn't be much of a surprise that Houston has taken three of the series' first four games.
"It's the playoffs, everybody is banged up, so you just got to find a way to fight through it and find a way to help your teammates win games", Harden said. If the Thunder are looking to correct late-game collapses, the Rockets are seeking solutions to their sluggish starts. The forward went just two-of-eight from the line in the fourth, allowing Houston to eventually take the lead for good. That's exactly what they did in the regular season against Oklahoma City, winning two contests by double-digits and one in nail-biting fashion. The Houston Rockets have won nine of their last 11 home games. They have lost two straight games after dominating the first two games against the Memphis Grizzlies. One potential hope for a breakthrough for Houston: The Rockets have yet to catch fire from behind the arc. "Overall for the most part, the things that we wanted to do against Houston defensively, we've tried to do pretty well".
