Looking to keep the momentum going following a 45-point blowout win over Charlotte on Monday, the Oklahoma City Thunder will welcome a dangerous Houston Rockets team to town on Wednesday night.

The Thunder have won five of their last six games to take a three-game lead in the Northwest Division, and are now currently the highest-scoring team in the Western Conference at 104.4 points per night after Monday's win. In addition to racking up 13 three-pointers in a route of the Bobcats, Oklahoma City finished the night with 31 assists on 40 made baskets and shot a sparkling 91.4% from the free-throw line.

Houston enters Wednesday's tilt on a three-game winning streak of its own, after taking down Chicago, New York and Toronto in consecutive home games over the last week to bounce back from a three-game slide. Set to face his old teammates for the first time, former Oklahoma City guard James Harden will again be counted on for a big offensive night for the Rockets. Harden's 25.2 points per game average is currently tied for fourth in the NBA, narrowly behind Kevin Durant's third-place mark of 25.9.
