Thunder Up! OKC Thunder face Houston Rockets Tonight in Game 7

The OKC Thunder face the Houston Rockets tonight in a pivotal game 7 contest. The winner goes on to face the Los Angeles Lakers in the second round of the playoffs. The Thunder are riding high and with lots of confidence after a close game 6 that saw Chris Paul demonstrate his leadership and clutch ability with 2 big threes in the fourth quarter as Houston's James Harden and Russell Westbrook failed to take advantage of an 8 point lead. The big storyline for this game is whether Chris Paul can send his old team home in round 1, or will OKC see Russell Westbrook wave goodbye once more?

You can watch the game tonight at 8pm CST on ESPN or Fox Sports Southwest
