TODAY is a quiet one in the NBA, with just four games being played, but it’s a good example of quality over quantity.
Russell Westbrook (ankle) has been ruled out of the Oklahoma City Thunder’s clash with the Houston Rockets, a his team aims to build on a six-game winning streak.
James Harden’s Rockets haven’t looked like the pre-season contender we thought they’d be, so this would be an impressive win for either team.
The final game of the day is also set to be a fun one, with the Golden State Warriors — No. 1 in the West, on an eight-game winning streak — facing Giannis Antetokounmpo and his Milwaukee Bucks, who are currently second in the East, sitting on 8-2.
