NBA Game of the Week: Rockets at Thunder
The Rockets are currently the best team in the NBA, which is surprising since most analysts favored Golden State, and many others commented on the difficulty of having two ball-dominant stars on the team with the addition of Chris Paul. Yet the Rockets have defied expectations to put together a phenomenal season. Couple that with the multiple superstars from the Thunder, this is guaranteed to be a high scoring game with some great offensive plays from both sides. Tune in Tuesday, March 6th at 8: 00 pm on TNT.
