The Oklahoma City Thunder begins life without Russell Westbrook when they visit the Houston Rockets in Game 3 of their first-round playoff series. Game time is 9:30 PM ET at the Toyota Center in Houston. The Thunder opened as a -5 point favorite but the number has dropped to -1 because of the injury to Westbrook. The total opened at 211.5 and is now 207.5 meaning that Westbrook is worth four points.
The Utah Jazz realize that they had better take care of business and close out the Houston Rockets on Friday or they will face a game 7 back in Houston on Sunday. The Jazz seemed to have the series totally in hand after winning the first two games in Houston but have now lost two of the past three games.
A series that looked to be competitive could end very quickly if the Utah Jazz does as expected and win at home. The Jazz won both road games at Houston and now come home where they had the NBA’s best home record.
