Note: I’m writing this preview a couple of hours before the Rockets-Mavericks game tips off. So if something wild happens in that game and I don’t mention it in the preview, you know why. I’ll still update with any pertinent information, if necessary.
The Houston Rockets are headed on the toughest possible road game available in the NBA: a road back-to-back n Denver’s altitude. The only thing saving this from the worst possible scenario is that the Rockets will gain an hour when they make the flight from Dallas. If you close your eyes, you can picture me desperately grasping at straws.
