Rockets extend win streak to 6 games

The Rockets stretch their hot streak to 6 games

By Travis Moore, Staff Writer

The Rockets have chosen a great time to start playing their best basketball all season. Last night the Rockets were able to pull off an impressive win against the second-seeded Toronto Raptors. The Raptors were led by their All-Star Small Forward Kawhi Leonard with 26 points, 6 rebounds, and 1 assist.

James Harden had a rough first half but turned it all around in crunch time, scoring 18 points in the fourth quarter alone. Chris Paul was the real star of the show with his playmaking abilities, finishing with 10 assists. The Rockets really ran away with this game in the fourth, outscoring the Raptors 38-24 in that quarter.

This marks the Rockets sixth win in a row. The Rockets are currently the third seed in the western conference, five games behind Golden State who have the first seed. The Rockets have put themselves in a good position for this year’s playoffs. Hopefully, we’ll be able to avenge last years western conference finals game 7 loss.
