Oklahoma City Thunder vs Houston Rockets takes place in the in Game 2 of their round 1 playoff series on Wednesday night. The Thunder will be looking to build upon their big win in Game 1 and will be confident of the win tonight. The game is scheduled to tip off at 7 p.m. ET and can be watched online through free live stream (details below).

The Thunder came out of the blocks fast in Game 1, and James Harden's Rockets were unable to contain them. Oklahoma came through with a massive win margin of 29 points and if that game is anything to go by this could easily be a long and painful series for the Rockets.

The Rockets have an immense task ahead of them if they are going to turn around this series. They must win 4 of the next six games, and if they lose again tonight it might be too much for them.

The Thunder outplayed the Rockets in just about every department in Game 1 and that will have knocked Houston's confidence big time. They will have to put that bad performance behind them and start all over again tonight. If they come into this game with any negativity from the first game then this one too could be over before it even starts tonight.

Houston shot under 40 percent in Game 1, hitting just 8-of-36 three-point attempts. They were also out-rebounded, stole fewer passes, blocked fewer shots and turned the ball over more than their rivals. Not a good omen for today's game.
