The Rockets are rolling along right now.
The Houston Rockets have had to deal with their fair share of injuries this season. Players like Chris Paul and Clint Capela have all missed their fair share of games this season which has forced reigning league MVP James Harden to raise his game and do even more than he already was. There have been some hard times this season but in the end, the Rockets have been able to rise up and string together some impressive wins. One of those wins came last night when the Rockets defeated the Boston Celtics by a score of 115-104. This was the Rockets fifth win in a row and afterward, Harden spoke about how the team is catching a wave at the right time.
"We're catching a rhythm," Harden said according to ESPN. "Throughout the course of the year, we've been having a lot of injuries, a lot of ups and downs, but we're finally catching a rhythm on both ends of the floor, and it feels great."
Harden, who dropped 42 points in the win, explained how right now is as good a time as ever to make a run: "We haven't had an opportunity to push, push, push. This is a perfect time to push, push, push and catch a groove going into the postseason."
The Rockets are currently ranked fifth in the Western Conference with a record of 38-25. They are one game back of the Portland Trail Blazers and the Oklahoma City Thunder for third place in the division.
