Another year and another blown opportunity by the Houston Rockets.  Last year Chris Paul went down with an injury and their hopes slipped away.

This year Kevin Durant went down with an injury and the Rockets still lost both Game 5 and Game 6.

KD watched the game from home and was healthy enough to stand on his strained calf and celebrate the fact that Golden State was going to the Western Conference finals.

It is possible for Durant to return in time to play in the next round.  As for the Rockets, this one has to hurt.  This way by far and away Houston’s best opportunity to beat the Warriors in the playoffs and they choked it away.

They shall be dubbed from now on the regular season Rockets.
