Both, Houston Rockets and Oklahoma City Thunder are eyeing for a win, which will give the advantage to book the spot-on Western Conference Semis. The series is currently balanced, with both teams grabbing two wins until Game 4. Rockets are considered to be favorites to win the upcoming fixture, as Russel Westbrook will join the squad after being left out due to injury.
The game will top-off at 6.30 ET on Saturday, August 29, 2020.
Rockets-OKC Thunder game was previously scheduled on August 27. NBA postponed the game for three days after the players protested racial injustice and police brutality that occurred near Kenosha, Wisconsin. Wisconsin-based team Milwaukee Bucks started a chain reaction that resulted in several high-profile sports events being postponed. There were reports that players wanted to boycott NBA Playoffs but later decided to resume the game.
OKC Thunder star and guard Chris Paul mentioned that it would be challenging to focus on the game, but all players are trying. Both teams returned to the training facility on Friday and practiced for Saturday’s game. Reports claimed that Westbrook looks explosive, and would return to starting lineup on Saturday after missing the first four matches.
