Delfino dunks on Durant? Delfino dunks on Durant. (VIDEO)

Apr 30, 2013, 10:57 AM EST

Even before Russell Westbrook went down, I thought there would be one game this series where the young and improving Houston Rockets would put it all together well enough to beat the Thunder. The kind of game where James Harden and crew would make plays the Thunder could not stop.

Such as Carlos Defino on the break dunking on Kevin Durant and getting the and-1. When Delfino is dunking on people, you know it’s the Rockets’ night.

And the Rockets did make enough plays to win and force a Game 5. They needed a little help from Serge Ibaka, but they got the win.

    last night’s game really showed me how much the Thunder miss Westbrook

      And you’re going to see more of it as they struggle to win this series and lose to Memphis.

        Funny as Grizz fan after the Rudy trade all non Grizz fans thought we’d be worse. If you’re a fan of them, you knew it’d help our team.

        sure, melkipershero, the ball doesn’t stop as much, and the Grizzlies are more efficient offensively without him.

        Struggle to win this series? You can’t be serious. That’s just absurd.

        Struggle to win this series?? Haha. You can’t be serious. That’s just absurd.

      • Mr. Wright 212 - May 1, 2013 at 1:13 AM

        Rockets are going to win tomorrow and yes, that would qualify as struggling, when many picked a sweep.

    • roeski - May 1, 2013 at 12:48 PM

      They will not win tonight. You can bet on that. So no, there will be no struggling.

    Outside of game 1, all of these games have been close. The Rockets make runs, their games mostly have one team getting down by a lot of points and making it close. It’s what happens when you shoot so many 3’s. I think next series the Thunder will find their groove without Westbrook. I’m just glad the Rockets didn’t get swept.

      Harden is choking again, or else they’d be up 3-1.

    Loved it.

    He’s lucky his name isn’t Kobe or Lebron, because this would have 100+ comments of “overrated” or something to that effect.

    An Arron Brooks sighting !! Oh the humanity !

    I was impressed, especially since this guy moves like a snail most of the games I’ve seen.
