New Orleans Pelicans v Houston Rockets

The year is winding down, after tonight’s contest only eleven more games will remain. If you’d asked me in February, I would have expressed nothing but gratitude for the Rockets season coming to a merciful conclusion. This newer, peppier, more coherent Rockets team is actually the sort of thing I thought I’d be watching all season, so I’m not sure I want to give it up, and focus on draft picks. But that’s going to happen anyway.

Anyhow, the Rockets take on the Pelicans again in a Bayou Two Step. The Pelicans have plummeted from NBA skies and are now looking for trash fish in the estuaries of the Gulf. The last game ended with Jabari Smith Jr canning a contested 3pt shot for the win. Let’s do it again.
