Free ESPN NBA Pick Oklahoma City Thunder  vs. Houston Rockets.

The two teams have faced each other 218 times in the regular season, of which, the Thunder have won 110 encounter, while the Rockets have 108 wins to their name.

Oklahoma City Thunder: The Thunder has been rolling hard and loud for the team as they have won 9 of their last 10 games. After a rocky start to the season, the Thunder are slowly finding their spark as a team. They have quickly gone from being one of the most disappointing teams in the NBA to quite possibly the biggest Western Conference threat to the Golden State Warriors. The combination of Russell Westbrook and Paul George is coming together beautifully in their second season. Perhaps that growth will give way to a deep playoff run and a possible conference championship meeting with the Warriors. The third-ranked Thunder are only a couple games out from tying the Denver Nuggets for the second-most wins in the Conference.

The Thunder have been above average in offense with a 5th rank in the league and 115.2 points per game, on the other hand, they have only been average on the defensive end. Ranked 12 in the league, they give away 109.7 points per game. George scores the most for the Thunder with 28 points, 7.9 rebounds and 4 assists. Westbrook adds 21.2 points along with 11.1 rebounds and 11.2 assists on an average in every game.

The Thunder won their last match against the Orlando Magic 132 to 122. They scored 50% of the field goals and 43.3% of the 3 points.George led the team with 39 points, 8 rebounds and 3 assists, while Grant added 19 points to the team sheets.

Houston Rockets: The Rockets too have shot well and 6 of their last 8 encounters have ended in their favour and they will be looking to extended their 3 game winning streak, as they take the Thunder on at home. Rockets star guard James Harden continues to look like a man amongst boys in a game-by-game basis. If not for the bearded basketball daemon, the Rockets would already be buried in the Western Conference without much hope of seeing the playoffs. Yet, they have remained relevant even in the absence of center Clint Capela and Chris Paul for a significant stretch of the season.Harden has proudly accepted the burden of carrying the Rockets on his back, and he is averaging a ridiculous 36.5 points per game and 7.9 assists.

The Rockets have been more or less average at both ends of the court, they are 11th in scoring offense, with 113.1 points per game on average and lets their opponents core 110.9 points against themselves, ranked 14 in the league. Harden scores an average of 36.5 points per game along with 6.8 rebounds and 7.9 assists.

ESPN NBA Scores Houston Rockets vs. Oklahoma City Thunder.

The Rockets beat the Thunder by 113-109 back on Christmas Day but so much has changed since then as the Thunder have gone from strength to strength while the Rockets have been heavily reliant on Harden who has been on a ridiculous scoring streak to offset their injuries. The encounter between these two teams have always been close and with Clint Capela still out and Chris Paul still not at 100 percent, it will only get closer.
