The 2020 NBA playoffs continue to roll along with Game 4 between the Houston Rockets and Oklahoma City Thunder in the Disney World bubble. After one half of action, both teams are tied 60-60. James Harden leads all scorers at the break with 19 first-half points. Chris Paul, however, has just four points on 2-of-6 shooting. After losing the first two games by double digits, the Thunder bounced back Saturday with an overtime win to get back in the series, and will try to even things up on Monday.
Houston is still playing without Russell Westbrook, who is sidelined with a quad injury. It has been able to get by without him, however, thanks to strong play from James Harden, who hasn't been all that efficient, but is putting up 34.4 points per game, and strong play from their bench. Jeff Green, in particular, has been huge in this series. Down 2-0 in the series, and trailing late in the fourth quarter, Thunder were on the ropes in Game 3, but managed to make enough plays down the stretch and in overtime to get a crucial victory. Still, they face what is essentially another must-win game in order to give themselves any hope in this series. They'll need more big performances from their backcourt trio. Follow along below for all the updates throughout Game 4.
