It's been about 48 hours since I wrote about how dumb the Rockets' season was an about how dumb this playoffs will be. Since then, I've reflected somewhat, read a bunch of different takes from our great staff and the writers around the web, and I've softened my stance. The Rockets are in the playoffs, they have one of the five best players on earth. Weird shit can happen.
Among the weird shit that might happen is NOT the Rockets taking this series. But hey, stealing Game 1 on the same floor the Warriors have lost to the Celtics and the Wolves over the past month after they just went full bore to go 73-9? That's some weird shit that might happen.
UPDATE: COREY BREWER IS STARTING ALL IS LOST
