Take the Rockets. I stated before in this series and I'll state it again: OKC doesn't have the offense to keep pace with the Rockets. Dort did a nice job early on in the series against Harden but Harden is just too good to be held down. The return of Westbrook seemed to energize the Rockets last game. Westbrook didn't have great stats but the Rockets played well with him on the court. Houston even played well defensively last game. Dort is a liability offensively and the Rockets pack the paint when he's in there. In reality OKC should not play Dort and Steven Adams at the same time because they are too much of a hindrance on the offensive end. Houston is just too strong for OKC and they get the cover Monday night. This might be a healthy public play but it's the side that will cash.
