They got back in the game and took the lead with Harden on the bench. None of the starters for OKC stepped up to help Westbrook and their bench play is non-existent. The couple minutes he sat in the 3rd Houston went on a 7 - 0 run.
Houston has a nice mix of guys who will do the dirty work and sharpshooters. Gordon, Anderson, Lou Williams, and Ariza supply the offense and Capela, Nene and Beverley do the dirty work, and Beverley supplying some offense really helps. Sam Dekker does a little of both. Williams and Nene were nice pick ups. I think they could do some damage in later rounds. Especially with some confidence if they sweep OKC or win in five.
