When James Harden has an off game it’s almost impossible for the Rockets to pick up a win and game four was no different.
Harden, finished with 16 points and was held in check for a majority of the game. When he went to the rim, his shot was either blocked or it just didn’t go in, and he was 0-7 from three.
The offense, in general, had a pretty rough time scoring, and at the half, the Rockets trailed the Thunder by seven points. It wouldn’t get easier as the Thunder would push the lead to 14 during the third, but much like in game three, the Rockets would make their move in the fourth.
Nene played a massive role for the Rockets scoring a team 28 points on 12-12 shooting, which helped ease the burden on Harden.
Russell Westbrook got his triple-double but again would leave with a loss.
