It was another week of losses for the Rockets, but the real story was the headline-grabbing news that broke on Saturday night following the loss to Denver (more on this below). The Rockets got pummeled by Charlotte, before going down in a more respectable manner to the Lakers, Heat and Nuggets. The losing streak now sits at seven. It feels like just the other day that I was filled with angst over the then seven-game winning streak lifting the team to respectability, a play-in spot and away from a prime draft pick. The Rockets (10-27) still sit with the Pistons (6-28) and Magic (7-30) with 52.
