Classic trap game!
There I said it.
The Rockets are well-rested coming off their most dominating performance of the season. In comes LeBron James and the Cavaliers, still with a mediocre record but coming off two straight wins in which LeBron has resumed his Destroyer of Worlds persona of the playoffs and/or his early Miami years. He’s a forking terrifying player.
James Harden is coming off one of the greatest games anyone has ever played. Literally!
So what could go wrong? I get that 2017 is apparently the year when decades of Houston sports tomfoolery is supposed to be going backwards, but I can’t help but still think the Rockets will lay an egg? I hope not.
Either way, if LeBron James Harden (shouts to AK) continue their current play, this game as all the makings of a classic.
