Season series – Thunder 2-1
-November 28th: Thunder 120, Rockets 98 – Kevin Durant drops an easy 37 and James Harden struggles (3-of-16 shooting) in his return to OKC
-December 29th: Thunder 124, Rockets 94 – OKC hit 13 threes and had five players in double-figures in this 30-point blowout
-February 20th: Rockets 122, Thunder 119 – Harden’s revenge came in the form of 46 cold-blooded points, sparking a wild second-half comeback to upset OKC in a shootout.
Series storyline – All Beard, all the time
Life (in the playoffs) without James Harden begins with a series against James Harden. It’ll capture all the initial headlines heading into Game 1 (as it should), but will only continue if the Rockets can somehow make it a series.
