The Rockets opened the season at the Timberwolves. It was a greatly anticipated game. It was a time of hope, a time of new beginnings. It was a thorough ass-kicking. Not in the right direction.
Tonight will be an opportunity for the Rockets to get a measure of revenge for the spanking at the hands of a .500ish team with high hopes in a weak Western Conference. An opportunity, but confidence in this happening is not high.
Confidence is low because the Rockets just got another thorough ass-kicking at the hands of the Lukaless Dallas Mavericks.
