Take aways from this game

The Thunder put it all on the line tonight and deserved the win over Houston. Will the Thunder pull the first up-set in the 2020 playoffs. Can 35 year old Chris Paul lead with team past the 2 former MVP’s in Houston. Will have to wait and see…

The Rockets need to be better with the ball down the stretch, too many turnovers and unforced errors. Credit to the Thunders defense and Chris Paul being aggressive and getting to loose balls.

Game 7 will be on Wednesday 9PM EST.
