Few people thought the Houston Rockets could make it this far. They were counted out after falling into a 3-1 hole against the Los Angeles Clippers, only to surge and make a historic comeback in the second round.
Such a feat was not meant to be repeated. Although the Western Conference finals was closer than many would have you believe, the Rockets ultimately took just one victory home with them as Steph Curry and the Golden State Warriors advanced.
The Houston Rockets are riding one of the craziest emotional highs you’ll see in the NBA. Looking dead and done in their series against the Los Angeles Clippers last Thursday night, down three games to two on the road and losing big in the second half, they began a nutty comeback that the league is still wrapping their heads around.
The best basketball going on right now is between the Golden State Warriors and Memphis Grizzlies. A seeming culmination of a year of excellent play in the Western Conference, the teams’ opposing styles have sparked a lot of debate about the state of the game.
