We’ve beaten the caveats to death (hard schedule, back-to-backs, injuries, etc.), so I’ll spare you all the excuses. Suffice to say that the Rockets are on the doorstep of their first road win, and tonight’s a legitimate chance to get it.
The Rockets have played the Los Angeles Lakers well even during the rebuild. They blew out the Lakers earlier this season in Houston (Anthony Davis was out, I know), and then only lost by a free throw in LA (Anthony Davis did play in that one).
