PLAYERS: Royce White
TEAMS: Houston Rockets
The Houston Rockets and their rookie Royce White have come to some sort of agreement on the treatment and coure of action for dealing with his anxiety disorder.

Rockets fire on all cylinders in win over Nets

HOUSTON -- The Houston Rockets are an average team, but they are average in the most tantalizing way. The Rockets never play an average game. They either play great, or they play terribly.
