The Rockets take on the Portland Trail Blazers

The Rockets get to decide tonight what kind of team they want to be.

The Rockets head to Portland to take on the Trail Blazers in the second night of a back-to-back after falling in a spirited effort last night against Golden State.

In what has been a tumultuous first half of the season, the .500 Rockets will either head into the All-Star break as a winning team or a losing one, depending on tonight's outcome.

As AK pointed out in his game preview, a loss here tonight also puts Houston on the outside looking in for post season seeding, something which would have been simply unfathomable a mere 3 months ago.

There will be plenty of time for reflection, rest, and adjustments over the break, but for now, the Rockets need to do whatever it takes to just get the win tonight.

Pretty please?
