The Houston Rockets were hoping to have a chance to make history by becoming the first team to overcome a 0-3 deficit and win a series. With the exception of Game One they only lost by 3 in Game Two and Three so it wasn't all that far-fetched.
When Chandler Parsons took this pass from James Harden and slammed it down to give Houston an early lead it was certainly looking good.
In the end it was someone who was once part of the family that did them in. Kevin Martin, who Houston sent over to OKC in the James Harden deal, had 25 points off the bench to go with Kevin Durant's 27 to lead the Thunder to a 103-94 win.
If they thought the No. 8 seeded Rockets were a challenge they are in for an even tougher one in the next round in the form of the Memphis Grizzlies.
