This feels weird to say, but the Rockets are rolling right now. They're rolling in a way they haven't been in weeks. They have back-to-back road wins against two great teams. They're above .500 again, in the seventh seed after an early Mavericks loss today, and they're just a half-game back of the Blazers for the No. 6 seed.
Tonight, the road trip ends in Charlotte. J.B. Bickerstaff has finally figured out a semblance of a rotation. The Rockets are playing great D for the first time all year. The Rockets have been saying all year they're capable of turning it around. For the first time, they're starting to show it consistently.
