Houston Rockets’ remarkable ride is over.
Houston Rockets are about to close their straight wins in a few minutes. They can’t drive past Boston. The Rockets lose their luck after all.
Today, the Rockets play in Toyota Center versus Boston Celtics. Though Ray Allen sits out, it’s still very hard to the Rockets. Celtics have KG and PP who can both contribute a lot for the team. As for the Rockets, Yao has been out for many days because of foot injury. Now everything depends on McGrady.
But tonight, McGrady’s situation seems not very good. He can’t score and assist freely like what he did in the past 22 straight wins. Celtics give him so much pressure when he tries to shoot.
From the third quarter, KG began to brighten up. Meanwhile, the Rockets began to lose their direction. They seemed to close their eyes and couldn’t see where the basketry exactly was. Celtics have lead the Rockets for more than twenty points. And the Rockets can’t do anything to make some changes. What can they do at present?
They are not lucky any more. 22 straight wins are enough and will be recorded in the NBA history. The Rockets have made history which seems impossible to them. That’s great! Now they need to think about the playoffs. They have to make some plans if they want to go further.
Tomorrow facing Hornets and Chris Paul, could the Rockets get a win?
