The Houston Rockets are in a must win situation if they want to get back in the Western Conference playoff race. Currently they are one game back of the No. 8 spot and are riding a six-game losing streak.
The Rockets are taking on the Golden State Warriors who are completely out of the playoff race and are leading 58-55 at the half. After the first quarter it looked like the Rockets would have an easy time tonight as they led by 10 points, but the Warriors offense had a great second quarter to outscore the Rockets by seven points to make it a close game at the half.
The Rockets are shooting the ball well at 55 percent but they are only 3-of-10 from the three-point line, while the Warriors are at 54 percent but the Warriors are keeping the game close against the Rockets by making 4-of-9 from three-point range.
The scoring for the Rockets is spread out with Luis Scola leading the way with 11 points and the bench has also stepped up for Saturday night and have scored 24 points.
