Last night’s win was big. It was intense. It was emotional. But the Thunder have to let go of that very quickly, because they’re looking at another difficult task tonight. The Rockets are a premier team, obviously, but they’re also someone the Thunder have dominated the past few seasons. Which means one of two things: 1) That will continue or 2) the tide will begin to turn.
