Game 30 Preview: Oklahoma City Thunder vs. Houston Rockets

I hate writing previews after a loss. I also dislike writing previews for the second of a back-to-back. So we get a brief preview today. We've played the Thunder twice already, and they're on television all the time now.

So, I'm going to give you a video:

Last 10 Seconds of Mavericks @ Thunder 12-29-11 (Kevin Durant's Buzzer Beater) (via boygenius88)

So you know Kevin Durant is really good. And thankfully this three pointer will replace all those Brandon Roy threes against the Rockets that the NBA insisted on putting in every commercial.

Luckily, the Thunder played last night too, beating the Jazz 111-85 in OKC. Hopefully being at home for the night will help the Rockets recuperate and bounce back. This isn't a game the Rockets are expected to win, but it's one they should be looking to steal.

Also, I am going to need someone to take the preview for Monday's game against Memphis. So, I'll do what I did last time. Pick the player with the best +/- for the Rockets tonight. But only answer it if you are serious about writing a preview. Also, Mitmil won last time, and he's got first dibs on the Sacramento preview on March 26.

Oh, and I say Thunder 106-88.

Tip is at 7pm CST.
