The Rockets look to end a 2-game winning streak tonight in Philly.
Sorry for the late preview, and it's Saturday so it's also a short one.
I hate writing previews after we lose because I'm too easily frustrated. It's also kind of depressing to get pumped after seeing the Rockets lose to a team that they should have beaten, even if it is Boston and it was on the road. It doesn't help that that loss came off the heels of a fourth-quarter collapse against the Hornets. As we've said many times, you can't lose too many games in the West and expect to make the playoffs.
The good news is that Philly is 15-22 and on a five-game losing skid and are 2-8 in their last 10. They're a young team that's missing the presence of Andrew Bynum. If he can get healthy and back into form, the Sixers become that team that no one wants to see in the playoffs.
Also, we're one more loss away from seeing the cheerleaders again.
Tip off is at 6:30pm CST.
