The Houston Rockets are slowly inching toward the preseason finish line with an extended road trip before the preseason finale on Friday in Houston.
HOUSTON -- The shot still stings more than five months later.
The Rockets hit the halfway point of their eight-game preseason schedule with a big thud. Playing on the second night of a back-to-back, Houston was clobbered by the Pelicans, 117-98.
The Rockets had a very nice 3-0 start to the preseason, including strong execution down the stretch in their wins over Dallas and Phoenix.
