After today, the Houston Rockets have won 5 straight games. I am not saying they are going to go for a win streak like the Warriors and Hawks did earlier this season, but I would not be surprised if the Rockets manage to take this streak to double digits. They are still without Dwight Howard, though his return is coming much closer. The fact that he still has not stepped foot on...

Houston’s Josh Smith denies Terrence Ross at the rim

Toronto’s Terrence Ross must have had a huge dinner because he just got stuffed!

Ross seemingly had a wide-open baseline and had the ball and his arm cocked back to throw it down but Smith had other ideas in mind. The post Houston’s...
