The Rockets will take on the Golden State Warriors tonight in Houston. The Warriors already lead the series, 2-0 and Terrence Jones & Co. are looking for redemption after a one point loss on Thursday.
In all technicalities, Houston is playing for their lives after Golden State accomplished their mission in California. If the Rockets can’t get the win in Texas, Golden State’s ticket to the finals is practically punched. Houston not calling a timeout after getting a rebound in the final nine seconds of the game caused James Harden to miss the chance at a shot and thus cost them the game. Now, they are going to have to rally together on offense to find their way to a win.
On the Kentucky side of things, T. Jones had 12 points, 1 steal, 2 rebounds, and 3 blocks in 26 minutes for the Rockets off the bench in Thursday’s game.
Here’s to hoping the Rockets can turn things around tonight. The game starts at 9 on ESPN. Go Houston.
