Analysis: The Rockets are streaking. They're the most dominant team in the NBA with a win streak stretching to 15 games. on Tuesday, they'll try to push that streak even further when they play the Thunder. Oklahoma City has an incredible defense, but it has not beaten a team over .500 since January.
OKC is in a tight playoff race in the middle of the Western Conference. They've struggled to get a solid footing this season, but they're still a team that should be considered a threat to the NBA's elite. There's just too much star power on their roster not to look at them that way.
That said, the Rockets are favorites heading into the matchup. They're just too good this season and are too locked in on getting the number one seed in the playoffs. They have an MVP candidate in James Harden. It's hard to go against that kind of team.
