Back to backs and back to back to backs are the norm with the compressed schedule in this lockout shortened season. The Rockets limped out of the gate, after ten games their record was 3-7. They then went 17-7 and surged to a 20-14 record at the all star break.
Up next, a date with the Thunder in Oklahoma City without Kyle Lowry who's out two to four weeks with a bacterial infection.
What do all of these peaks and valleys add up to? A whole lot of mediocrity. Wednesday's upcoming game against the Bobcats can't come soon enough.
That's not a lock either, even they have been playing better of late.
