(VINTAGE) Houston Rockets @ OKC Thunder Pick & Preview

Matchup: Houston Rockets @ Oklahoma City Thunder

Date: 1/9/20

Pick: OKC +4.5

Amount: 800


Analysis:


One of the greatest revenge games ive seen in a VERY long time.


Chris Paul the greatest point guard of the generation will most likely not win a title. He should in all honesty be thankful he has such a big revenge game to show out in tonight. This is about as big as a game as it'll get for him.


Flashback to the 2018 NBA playoffs: Chris Paul sat game 7 vs Golden State Warriors. (biggest game of his career)


Flashback to the 2019 NBA playoffs: Chris Paul was an absolute no show and wasn't there to rise to the occasion when James Harden needed him too. 


End Result: The blockbuster Westbrook for Paul trade goes down. Chris Paul gets moved, leaving his relationship with James Harden on god awful terms and his relationship with the whole Rockets organization on awful terms.


The Thunder took the Loss in October vs the Rockets and let me tell you.. tonight they even the series.


Rockets coming off a back to back. There is a 100% chance James Harden rolled up to a strip club in Atlanta and is battling a 2 day hangover. He will not be looking nice tonight.


Russell Westbrook is having the worst shooting game of his life tonight even though that's every night for Russell Westbrook.


The Thunder have NOTHING to lose. They have been playing great team basketball behind Chris Paul who has looked fantastic this month. Expect nothing less than a perfect game from the 34 year old vet, who would love nothing more than to show the Rockets he’s still a great player in this league. 


Everyone shows up for the Thunder tonight. HAMMER +4
