Yes indeed, we’re a perfect 3-0 with our NBA Playoff Locks this postseason after LeBron James and the Lakers annihilated the Blazers on Monday night. Yes, it’s true that all things must come to an end, but they’re not coming to an end tonight. We’ve circled Game 5 between the Thunder and Rockets on Wednesday night as our lock.
NBA Lock For Wednesday: Oklahoma City Thunder vs. Houston Rockets
The Pick: Rockets -4
Tip-Off: 6:30 PM EST
After the Rockets won each of the opening two games of this series by double digits, Oklahoma City has managed to tie the series up at 2-2 after Houston went cold late in Game 4.
I’m leaning toward the fact that Houston managed to 5-for-26 from deep after starting the second half 8-for-8 in the second half was a bit of a fluke. Yes, the Thunder turned things up a notch late in the game, but the Rockets didn’t help their own cause, which shouldn’t be the case on Wednesday night.
The Thunder’s Luguentz Dort has been able to manage James Harden for the most part, but it won’t last this entire series; the Rockets simply have too much firepower on the perimeter and we’ll see that in full-force in a pivotal Game 5. Houston is certainly missing Russell Westbrook, but even without him, this isn’t a team that will fold three straight games against a lesser team in the Thunder.
