Mark Simon, one of ESPN's ace stat men, tells us who Larry McNeill is: He went 12-for-12 for the Kings against the Bulls in Game 2 of their First Round series in 1975. McNeill played power forward with star point guard Tiny Archibald. In Game 1 of the series, he went 6-for-6, meaning that in the first 2 games, he went 18-for-18. Houston center Nene tied McNeill's mark for most shots made without a miss in the playoffs in Sunday's victory over the Thunder.

Rockets have picked up the physical play in the third quarter by protecting the rim on and getting bodies on the Thunder's bigs.

Calvin Watkins ESPN Staff Writer 

James Harden is 2-11 from the field for eight points. The Thunder have attacked him when he gets to the rim and his shot from the outside is off. He made a mistake at the end of the third quarter when he drove to the bucket had the rim open but threw the ball out to Lou Williams leading to a turnover and the buzzer sounded ending the half.

Ramona Shelburne ESPN Senior Writer 

Tough game so far for James Harden. He's 2-11 from the field (0-5 on 3s) for just 8 points. The combination of Andre Roberson and Taj Gibson is really frustrating him... so far. Still a quarter to go. OKC up 77-73.
