After battling the Indiana Pacers on Easter Sunday, the Houston Rockets continued their Eastern Conference road trip. Facing an even sterner test in the Cleveland Cavaliers the Rockets came back from a 20 point deficit to notch the victory.
Tough week for the Rockets. Even if the Cleveland Cavaliers decided to rest King LeBron James, playing against the top seeded team on the East, away from home and on a roadtrip is never an easy task.
A couple Rockets starters suffered with foul trouble early which ended up leaving the team to rely mostly on Bickerstaff’s thin rotation. Rockets interim head coach tried a couple of new things tonight, McDaniels saw some playing time, Harden spent some minutes as the team’s only (point) guard, etc..
Then as the Rockets fans are probably getting used to, the team came back late in the second half but this time were able to finish off their opponents with great defense in the final minutes of the fourth.
This writer simply cannot figure out this team.
