So after winning 5 out of 6 in their longest homestand, Houston Rockets travelled to Miami after a 4 days' rest to face a red-hot Miami Heat which is currently riding on a winning streak of 4.

For Houston Rockets, they seemed to have chosen the wrong time to have to play Miami Heat. At the beginning of March, Miami Heat encountered all sorts of problems, and was mired in a season-high five-game skid; but since then, they had been playing better and better, won 7 out of 8, and is currently one-half game behind Boston for second in the Eastern Conference.

Houston Rockets had been playing very well themselves since the All Stars Break, having won 12 out of 15. But despite of the outstanding results, they are
still 1.5 games behind Memphis Grizzlies, which had also been playing tenaciously well.

So this will be an interesting match-up; Houston Rockets will try to avoid a clean sweep by the Miami Heat and further close the gap between themselves and Memphis Grizzlies who will be playing San Antonio Spurs on the same day.
If the Grizzlies lose the game, and the Rockets win the game, then the 2 teams will only be separated by 0.5 game.

The key to this win is DEFENSE i.e. how to contain the 3 Amigos of Miami Heat who had been playing pretty well recently.

GO GO GO ROCKETS !!! GO FOR ANOTHER WIN TO EXTEND THE WINNING STREAK TO 6 !!!

1H ended. Relying on a 7 ~ 0 run in the last minute, Miami Heat led 71 ~ 68 by 3 points.

A closely contested and very high-scoring game so far, with both teams scoring above 50%; the Rockets at 53% FG%,and the Heat at 51% FG%.


The Rockets played well so far, trading blows with blows with the 3 Amigos, and never trailed by more than 3 points. But the thing was they were severely outrebounded by the Heat: 28 rebounds by Heat versus 14 by the Rockets.
