Rockets vs Thunder Free Pick

November 28, 2012

Tonight the Houston Rockets must put tragedy aside as they travel to Oklahoma City to take on the Oklahoma City Thunder. Players and coaches for the Rockets will attend Head Coach Kevin McHale’s daughter’s funeral Wednesday and then try to concentrate on beating one of the best teams in the NBA.

On top of that, for James Harden it will be his first return to Oklahoma City since he was traded to the Rockets at the start of the season. Harden played for the Thunder for three seasons to start his career and won the award for Sixth Man of the Year last season.  

The Rockets enter the game with an overall record of 7-7 straight up and 7-6-1 against the spread. They will be facing the Thunder who has a record of 11-4 straight up and 9-5-1 against the spread.

The Rockets have won three consecutive games and Harden has been a big part of that recent success. He is averaging over 28 points per game during that stretch. On Tuesday, Harden scored 24 and dished out 12 assists in Houston’s 117-101 win against Toronto. Jeremy Lin, signed in the offseason by the Rockets from the New York Knicks, has averaged nearly 15 points per game in his last two games after only averaging less than 8 points in his previous seven games.

The Thunder is averaging nearly 113 points per game and a shooting percentage of 48% over their last six games, in which they have been victorious in five. On Monday night, the Thunder routed Charlotte 114-69 and led at one point during the third quarter by 54 points.

Kevin Durant is once again leading the team in scoring with an average of nearly 26 points per game, but only had 18 against Charlotte in just 26 minutes of play in the rout. Over his past six games against Houston, Durant is averaging 29 points per game.

The current line has the Thunder as the favorite by 10 points with the total sitting at 205. Four of five smart money bettors have chosen Houston plus the 10 points and the over to cash out in this game.
