Heavyweights of the Western Conference take each other on as Houston Rockets take on Oklahoma City Thunder in the regular season of the NBA on Christmas. Last year’s runners-up in the Western Conference are the Rockets and they are still trying to get back to the dominant position they were once in. The team was touted as the best team in the NBA last year, but injuries plagued them. The fact they had let go of some important players this summer is costing them dearly, and finally, the team has made some trades which can help them solve those very problems.
Meanwhile, Oklahoma City Thunder are a different franchise all together this time out. They have to be considered as one of the favourites to win the entire competition as they have one of the most balanced teams. The defence is on point and now with the likes of Paul George and Russell Westbrook, the offence is ticking along positively as well. This is a sign of good times, and it will interesting to see how long can they keep this form up.
