This game is the last one in the series and we still can’t easily point out which one is going to take the win home. Both teams have been incredibly strong and are well matched. The Houston Rockets had the vantage position and they cheaply lost it, now they have to battle for one last win.
This game is the overall decider. Much bigger challenges lie ahead and these two teams have this last hurdle to cross. The conference semifinals are already blazing hot and whichever team wins in this round is fit to take on any team in the semifinals because this duel has really been a tough one.
In this article, we’ll try to compare and contrast their stats to see which team is in a better position to win in their game tomorrow. We’ll take a close look at their head to head stats, their previous games, and what the outcomes were, and then we’ll predict what the results would be so that you can have a clearer understanding of the situation before you stake your money.
Head to Head
The Oklahoma City Thunder have always had the upper hand whenever they’re merged to play the Houston Rockets in the playoffs. The margin isn’t so high but the OKC Thunder would have to lose 7 games straight for the Houston Rockets to meet up. They have both played a total of 47 playoff games and the OKC Thunder has won 27 of them. The Houston Rockets have won the remaining 20.
In the regular-season games, the OKC Thunder has brought along the same force. Although, as usual, the margin isn’t very high, they’ve, however, exerted their dominance. In the regular-season games, the two teams have played a total of 223 games. OKC Thunder won 114 of the games and The Houston Rockets won 109.
There’s not a single doubt as to which team is the better one; however, that wouldn’t be a winning factor in tomorrow’s match as neither of these two teams wants to leave the win for the other.
Previous Games Records
The Houston Rockets kicked off the regular season with incredible energy. Their winning streaks began pretty early in the regular-season games after they lost their first match, they immediately started a winning streak from the second. They have had a really high winning streak of 8-games and it’s currently their longest streak in the 2019/2020 season.
The Oklahoma City Thunder, on the other hand, didn’t start this season strong. However, there have been massive improvements in their games. They have recorded up to three 5-game winning streaks. And their losses are relatively minimal.
This game is going to be a really tough one and from their records, we can clearly see that the OKC Thunder has had an excellent record against the Rockets, but their records this season doesn’t prove so much so. Nonetheless, none of these teams can be easily placed above the other.
We’ll leave the odds at 2.5 for Rockets to win and 2.3 for the Thunder to win.
May the better side win.
