The Yankees out to prove they’re for real this weekend

Listen, we know it’s tough to catch up on everything happening in the baseball world each morning.

If the Thunder are going to have a chance, they will need to rebound the hell out of the offensive glass, and clog up the Houston rollers to prevent easy dunks. Threes may or may not fall; the Thunder can only pray they get lucky. But preventing the cascade of players to the rim is a must.

Harden is so good with his two primary centers, Capela and Nene. For Capela, he’ll toss lobs, while he hits Nene with pocket bounce passes in the exact same situation. He knows their tendencies and where to find them. The offensive glass and how much the Rockets can score easy buckets could swing this series more than anything else.
