Harden NBA Playoff Preview

Start- James Harden, Ryan Anderson Clint Capela

 

For all intense and purposes, this is round two of MPV race- postseason edition. Harden got the best of Westbrook last game and this one is going to be worth watching. The Thunder have to win the rebound battle is they want to advance past this series. OKC leads the league in rebounds but lost to the Rockets last game because they got whipped on the boards. We think Kanter deserves more playing time, and if he gets it, look for big game from him. Will Beverly shut down Westbrook again?
