The Rockets are looking to close things out tonight. No need to let a scrappy Thunder squad mess around and really believe they can win this thing in a Game 7. We all know what Houston can be when they’re at their best: probably the most difficult team in the league to counter. But they’ve had a bad habit at times of not squashing the bug. Now would be a good time to come out and show what kind of contender they want to be. The kind who dispatches of inferior talented teams when they deserve to be dispatched? Or the kind who struggles to seal the deal? Questions about to find answers.
