Houston Rockets vs. Oklahoma City Thunder game preview

The Houston Rockets return to the friendly confines of Toyota Center, but a tall task is standing in the way of their ninth home (and overall) victory.

Part of that tall task is Chet Holmgren (get it, because he’s tall?), the second overall pick for the Oklahoma City Thunder in the 2022 NBA Draft. My love of all things Gonzaga is well known here, so I understand why my love of Holmgren as a draft prospect was met with more eye rolls than looks of respect. Well, Chet has made me look pretty good in my “He’s Victor Wembanyama but more skilled” take.
