Jackson Gatlin (@JTGatlin) recaps the Rockets Game 1 win 123-108 over the Oklahoma City Thunder behind 37 points (12/22 FG) from James Harden. Topics include Eric Gordon’s aggressiveness while his three-ball isn’t falling, Jeff Green and Ben McLemore bench production, including Green’s point-center mentality throughout the game, excellent defense throughout, Danilo Gallinari getting (pretty much) whatever he wanted and more.
