With an all-out effort to take a 2-0 lead over the Oklahoma City Thunder, the Houston Rockets shattered all past perceptions of them in 48 minutes.
When it comes to the Houston Rockets, we’ve heard it all before. From calling them gimmicky to playoff chokers, fans have had to defend the team from all kinds of slander over the years. So far in the postseason, though, the Rockets are dispelling a lot of negative stereotypes about their style of play.
Despite being down by one superstar in Russell Westbrook, the Rockets have started their playoff series against the Oklahoma City Thunder with two emphatic wins highlighted by excellent defense and a total team effort on both sides of the ball.
