Revenge?

NBA: Denver Nuggets at Houston Rockets
Let’s see some of this.
Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

So tonight the Rockets look to resume their winning ways and get a measure of revenge for their loss in Cleveland last time these two teams met. The Cavs are down Kevin Love and Larry Nance Jr. tonight. That won’t matter if they have the kind of “We can’t miss a contested mid-range festival.” that the Rockets faced in Cleveland.

The Rockets are down Chris Paul and Eric Gordon, and are vulnerable to the kind of basket attacking and offensive rebounding sort of game Cleveland played the last time.

The Rockets, however, are looking a lot stronger than what (all Rockets fans hope) was a low point of the season. James Harden has found another level in his game, against all expectation, and now it seems routine if he scores 40+.
