In Rockets news today, one of the Houston Rockets fan base's most beloved players showed a little bit of that love back before Monday's game against the San Antonio Spurs.
Per Houston Rockets insider Twitter account @clutchfans, Houston Rockets star Chandler Parson had some warm words for the Rockets' fans and the upcoming NBA Playoffs:

Parsons has been battling a hip issue, but was activated for Monday's contest with the Spurs. The Houston Rockets are looking to be cautious with Parsons leading into the playoffs, and Parsons may be on a shorter leash than usual if his hip starts to act up.
The Houston Rockets currently sit a half-game ahead of the Portland Trail Blazers for home-court advantage in their locked-in first round playoff series. At 53-27, the Rockets are one ahead of the Blazers (53-28) in the loss column, with one more game to play.
