It’s Pride Night at the Toyota Center, which is a first for the Rockets, so that’s pretty cool. On top of that, the Houston tank-a-thon likely rolls on tonight with Houston down so many ancillary players, but that doesn’t mean they haven’t been fun to watch.
John Wall, Kelly Olynyk, KPJ, Christian Wood, and Jae’Sean Tate are starting tonight, and I’m going to be honest, I like watching all of those guys play regardless of outcome, because I think they all mostly pay smart basketball and I’m enjoying watching the young talent develop.
There’s a bright side in everything, and we haven’t been in this situation for a while now as Rockets fans, and it continues to look like Rafael Stone is playing this right. It just needs to be capped off by the right high draft pick.
Anyway, the Rockets probably lose tonight. It’s probably for the best, but they’ll be some fun stuff to watch with the team’s developing players and I’ll be tuning in.
