14 to Go

Written by: Donald Tolbert | SFL Sports Blogger

One question has been answered thus far. For anyone wondering if the Rockets were focused and ready for the playoffs (me). They have answered with an affirmative yes. Two blowout wire to wire victories at home has put the NBA world on notice.

What speaks louder is the comments from their opponents. Gobert basically said the Rockets dont respect them as competition. Rubio described their style of play as championship level. Followed by acknowledging the Rockets hunger. To their credit the Rockets are hearing none of it. PJ Tucker said the Rockets hadn't been aggressive enough in a post practice interview. And to the man they all credited the Jazz missing shots more than their defense contributing to the game 2 win over Jazz. All in all it counts.

The Rockets know there effort will have to go up a level to win in Utah. They had 18 turnovers in addition to the wide open missed shots by Jazz in the game 2 victory. Tonight they cant expect to win with that combination. The Jazz fan will give their team everything they have tonight and the role players will feel alot more comfortable at home.

Tonight's game will be won with a high level of execution. And I will be here for it. #Rednation #GoRockets #14togo
