The Rockets are undefeated on the second night of back-to-backs this year. They're undefeated against teams that with losing records. They've lost all of three games against the Eastern Conference, and none since Nov. 23. There's a lot of precedent.
And yet, years of Rockets fandom have trained me to dread a loss tonight. Call it PTSD or something. If the Rockets don't win, I'll be surprised but not shocked. But they should really win, and a big win would be nice, too.
