It’s imperative that the Rockets win tonight in San Antonio.

The Rockets and Spurs head back to San Antonio for a Game 5 that is a must win. The winner of Game 5s, more often than not, end up as the winner of the series, so tonight’s contest is pivotal for both teams.

The Rockets will be without Nene, though he is there in spirit tonight.

Houston will start Eric Gordon tonight and bring Ryan Anderson off the bench as the backup center.

The Spurs will also be making a lineup change. They are starting Patty Mills at the point instead of Dejounte Murray.

Need a well-balanced attack from Houston tonight, and I think we see one.

Go Rockets!
