Description: HOU Vs OKC Dream11 Team Overview, Match Centre And Probable Playing 5: Oklahoma take Houston to game 7 after a heroic effort in game 6
This series between Houston Rockets and Oklahoma City Thunder has turned out to be a real tasty proposition. There has been extremely nothing to separate these two sides and its shown in the manner the series has unfolded as well with the playoffs between the two sides finely poised at 3-3 as thing stand.
While Houston Rockets did take a runaway lead at one stage as they clobbered Oklahoma on a couple of occasions, Oklahoma were quick to restore parity in the series. Its been a remarkable show of fight and character from the club, one which was perfectly documented in their game 6 triumph.
Breathing down Houston’s necks all across the scrimmage, Oklahoma pulled off one of their most resilient defensive showings on the day. Refusing to give any kind of leeway to the Rockets, Oklahoma not only placated their attack but came up with clutch shots in the fourth quarter to script a hard fought but much deserved 104-100 win.
HOU Vs OKC Dream11 Probable Winner
Right back in the series with two wins on the bounce, Oklahoma now stand as much of a chance of winning this series as Houston do. Either sides have exchanged blows all across the last 6 games with nothing being able to see the scales tilt in one side’s favour.
Staying true to the nature of the playoffs, this one promises to make for yet another cliff-hanger. We envisage Westbrook being accorded a larger role today, one which should bolster Houston’s attack and take them to a win.

Brushing off a slight injury concern, Eric Gordon pulled off 9 points and 6 boards in game 6 to see him form one part of the puzzle from the Rockets in this docket. Completing the partnership will be Danuel House who dropped 12 points in the same game with the two moving in tandem to layup points inside the paint for the side.
Robert Covington has delivered two of his most sublime performances of the season in the last couple of affairs. After 22 points in game 5, he came up with 18 points and 5 rebounds in game 6 to not only pile on the baskets but ensure quick turnover of possession as well for his team.
Darius Bazley will be inducted into our docket from Oklahoma City Thunder. With 8 points and more importantly 9 rebounds, he played an integral part in the side’s win in game 6 with his ability to guard his post leaving Houston in a pickle.
P.J. Tucker had a massive hand to play in Houston moving just four points short of a win in the foregone matchup. He protected his rim perfectly, screening everything that was sent down his way with his ability to block seeing him pile on a hefty 11 rebounds on the day.
His stunning show of shooting in game 6 earns Harden a place in our side as the star player while Chris is the pro player.
