Questions to Consider:
The Rockets and Spurs are ranked #1 and #2 in pace respectively in the NBA. Both teams are dangerous on the fast break and like to use as little of the shot clock as possible. Unlike the Rockets, Gregg Popovich's Spurs are able to run while maintaining a top five defense. If the Rockets lose tonight, the Spurs will take the series. To keep the winning streak alive the Rockets are going to have to steal a tough win on the road. Can the Rockets beat the odds?
