Spurs SBNation Blog: Pounding the Rock


The Rockets have nothing to play for, as they have clinched homecourt advantage throughout the whole NBA playoffs with Toronto’s loss to Boston yesterday. And Chris Paul will sit for the Rockets, but you are fooling yourself (see what I did there?) if you think that Houston does not want to win.

The Spurs sent them home last year and there is always animosity between the Rockets and arguably the biggest rival. San Antonio could also be a potential playoff opponent in the first or second round, so the Rockets might want to get some solid reps in against the Spurs.
