It was another losing week for the Rockets, but the real story was the news that hit the headlines on Saturday night following the loss to Denver (more details below). The Rockets were clubbed by Charlotte, before falling more respectably against the Lakers, Heat and Nuggets. The losing streak now sits at seven. I feel like the other day I was agonized over the seven-game winning streak, lifting the team to respectability, a place of play and away from. a first choice in the draft. The Rockets (10-27) still sit with the Pistons (6-28) and Magic (7-30) with a 52.1% chance of being in the top four and a 14% chance of being the first. These last two teams are unlikely to give up their places anytime soon. The Thunder and Pelicans are looming, both at 13-23, but 5-5 and 6-4 in their last 10 games, respectively. It’s a chance for Houston!
