Eric Gordon scored 21 points (7-of-17 FG, 2-of-6 3PT), dished four assists and grabbed three rebounds on Tuesday as the Rockets took down the Thunder in Game 1 of the Western Conference Playoffs.
Gordon was a big factor for the Rockets on Tuesday, which is precisely what they needed. He played 30 minutes in this his third game in the bubble after battling an ankle injury right before the seeding games began. He knocked down two three-pointers to complement the likes of teammates James Harden and Danuel House. The Rockets will take a 1-0 series lead into Game 2 on Thursday, in which they will still be without supporting star Russell Westbrook (strained right quad).
