That NBA Lottery Pick:
Only a season ago, Houston Rockets star James Harden was coming off the bench for the Oklahoma City Thunder. So it probably felt like a little bit of deja vu as his Rockets take on the Thunder in the first round of the Western Conference playoffs.
In the third quarter of game two, Harden was pitted against Oklahoma City’s Thabo Sefalosha and blew by him for an easy one-handed slam dunk:

BEST OF MAXIM
The Oklahoma City Thunder squeezed past James Harden and the Houston Rockets on Wednesday in a 105-102 shootout.
Kevin Durant continued to make good on his promise that he is done with being second best.
He nailed a clutch three-pointer with less than three minutes left to send the Thunder off to Saturday’s Game 3 at Houston with a 2-0 quarterfinal series lead.
The Houston Rockets would be interested in hiring Stan Van Gundy if Kevin McHale steps down in the offseason, according to sources.
McHale is unlikely to leave the Rockets.
The Rockets will pursue Dwight Howard in free agency and sources say he has a newfound respect for Van Gundy after a challenging season with the Los Angeles Lakers.
Enduring a nightmarish postseason that was punctuated by a chest injury, Rockets point guard Jeremy Lin is listed as questionable to compete tonight against the Oklahoma City Thunder in Game 3 at the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas. The 6-foot-3, 200 pound Lin, who inked a four-year deal worth approximately $28 million with Houston as a restricted free agent in the summertime, couldn’t...
Despite one hell of an effort from the Houston Rockets in Game Two, so far business has been taken care of by the Oklahoma City Thunder.
The Thunder remain seated atop their No. 1 seed throne maintaining home-court advantage by going up 2-0 in the series with their two initial home games. This is obviously a great sign for OKC. Houston showed promise in Game Two as well, though...
Houston point guard Jeremy Lin is listed as day to day with a bruised right chest muscle he suffered in a Game 2 loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder.
Lin was injured in the first half of the 105-102 loss on Wednesday night and didn't return in the second half.
He underwent an MRI on Thursday which did not reveal any damage beyond the bruise right chest muscle.
The Rockets host...
The Houston Rockets could be without starting point guard Jeremy Lin when they host the Oklahoma City Thunder in Game 3 on Saturday night.
The Thunder definitely will be missing their point guard, with All-Star Russell Westbrook out indefinitely with a knee injury that will require surgery.
The Rockets hope Lin, who has a bruised chest muscle, can return for the first playoff game...
The Oklahoma City Thunder are now going to face some adversity in these playoffs, and it will be interesting to see how they respond.
Darnell Mayberry is reporting that star point guard Russell Westbrook will have surgery on his torn Meniscus.
Russell Westbrookwill undergo surgery in the coming days to repair a lateral meniscus tear in his right knee, the Thunder has announced....
No Westbrook, no problem.
At least until the NBA Finals, but that’d be a major problem even with a healthy Russell Westbrook.
Westbrook tore his meniscus (a small tendon in your knee) during the second quarter of Wednesday’s night game against the Thunder. (video of Russell Westbrook injury after the jump)
There is no timetable for Westbrook’s return, but the average recovery...
