Rockets at Thunder, Part II

New, comments

The Rockets are back in Oklahoma City to avenge last month's two-point loss to the Thunder.

Mark D. Smith-USA TODAY Sports

The Rockets have won four games in a row, Donatas Motiejunas is finally, really, truthfully, honestly back in the fold, and Houston is traveling to Oklahoma City to enact revenge on a team that beat them by two points back in November. And while D-Mo won't be playing tonight, his return is just the cherry on top of a mojo sundae for a team already doing well in that department.

Russell Westbrook goes for his seventh straight triple double tonight, though his Rockets arch-nemesis Patrick Beverley will be on check duty, and the good guys in red are 9-2 since Bev's return to the lineup. Westbrook and James Harden are also likely one and two (in either order, depending on your loyalties) in the early MVP race.

The Thunder are also just one game behind the Rockets in the standings and have won six games in a row themselves. It's shaping up to be a great game tonight, nationally televised on ESPN.

As always, don't forget to check out AK's preview and make sure you're here at 7pm sharp CST to rap about the game.
