Westbrook vs Harden the highlight when NBA playoffs open

One team will reign supreme; those who can't wait until June to find out which one can take a sneak peek at the Bing Predicts NBA Playoffs bracket.

John Yang has the story.

In terms of total three-pointers made per game, the Rockets finished first in the league with 14.4 made per game and the next team (the Cleveland Cavaliers) finished with 13, so there is a major gap in three-pointers made between the Rockets and the rest of the National Basketball Association.

"The medical staff does a great job with all his data throughout his entire career, how many minutes he's played, all those kind of things", Donovan said.

Beyond the stats that underscored their success against Oklahoma City, the Houston Rockets showcased that for all the dynamism Thunder guard Russell Westbrook possesses, his individual brilliance isn't always a corollary for victories.

This is the marquee match-up of the first round, therefore the National Basketball Association will find a prime time spot for every night they play. If we had a rigid definition, there wouldn't be much room for discussion.

Help us understand this accomplishment.

Westbrook, the triple-double machine who singlehandedly carried the Thunder after Kevin Durant bailed, probably will.

He had to attack. The only team in front of them? The two teams are very similar in the way they operate.

If Cleveland makes a deep run, he may take over the No. 1 spot on the all-time career playoff scoring list.

"You've got to rebound", D'Antoni said simply. So, is that why this is such a rare accomplishment? Seeing OKC's strengths center around its big men, the Thunder lead the league in rebounding with 46.6 rebounds per game with 12.2 on the offensive end.

And you get with a certain team. Perfect, because I'm destined to incite a riot by trying to settle the NBA Most Valuable Player debate.

The NBA season has come to a close and the playoffs is soon to begin.

"I just go out when my name is called", he said. "That lets you know that every possession matters". And Russell Westbrook has stepped up to the plate. "I think the (MVP) votes were in today, so that shit's over with, that means nothing at all right now".

JOHN YANG: When you were in Oklahoma City with Westbrook the other day, you charted The chant, "MVP".

OSCAR ROBERTSON: Look what he did. That's an accomplishment that has been 55 long years in the brewing and which many believed might never be achieved again. Why shouldn't he be the MVP? "I'm going into it thinking we can win".

JOHN YANG: And talk about electrifying the fans and drawing them in, this weekend, of course, the playoff start. The season was filled with excitement and disappointment, but it was mainly capped off between the MVP race with Oklahoma City Thunder guard Russell Westbrook and Houston Rockets guard James Harden.

It's going to happen so many times. The fouls will be harder. Both for he individually but more importantly for them as an organization.

In the first round, Golden State will play the Trailblazers. It is time for Adams and friends to give Westbrook a helping hand, or they'll be going home early.

On the East Coast, it's up in the air. In games which those two have been healthy though, this has been a dominant team.

Congratulations to the victor of this series and the 2017 MVP award, whether they get the trophy in June or not. It seems trivial to say, but Leonard's play was even better than statistics could show. If the Houston defense can force them instead of committing them, that's a big win. Unless the ping pong balls really bounce their way, then we shall see. They are first (Westbrook) and second (Harden) in scoring.
