Game #64: Houston Rockets vs. Oklahoma City Thunder

Christian Petersen

The Thunder have been dealt an unfortunate blow in losing two of their best defenders in Sefolosha and Perkins. Both players have caused major match up problems for both James Harden and Dwight Howard. Can the soaring Rockets notch their first win of the season against a slumping conference foe?
