Game thread: Rockets vs. Heat

The Rockets look to head into the break with a five-game win streak.

NBA: Houston Rockets at Miami Heat Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

It feels like forever since we last watched the Rockets play, and that’s a strange feeling to have, because for a while there, Houston was seemingly on every night.

That’s changed over the last two weeks, when the Rockets have twice had three-day breaks, and now that this is the last game before the All-Star break, it’s about to be even longer between games.

Anyway, the Rockets have won four in a row, while the Heat have lost two in a row. Hopefully, both of those streaks are extended in tonight’s game.

The Heat did beat a tired Rockets squad earlier this year in Miami, but it’s a different situation entirely trying to knock off a rested Houston team at the Toyota Center. I expect the good guys to take care of business tonight.
