4. Houston Rockets vs. Oklahoma City Thunder – 8 p.m. ET on ABC
Fit player to watch: Russell Westbrook (Thunder) – The reigning NBA MVP has continued to play at an extremely high level, leading the NBA in assists with nearly 10 per game. Westbrook is still getting used to playing with All-Stars Paul George and Carmelo Anthony, but, as usual, he’s making explosive plays all over the court.
The Houston Rockets have been one of the most impressive teams in the league this season, leading the Western Conference for most of the year over the Golden State Warriors. James Harden is putting together a strong case for the league MVP, leading the NBA with 31.9 points per game and ranking third in assists with nine per contest. The Rockets are one of three teams to have a winning streak of at least 13 games this season, along with the Cavs and Celtics—marking the first time three teams have done this in their first 30 games of the same season.Back to top
