Jeremy Lin and the Houston Rockets are on the road tonight taking on the Brooklyn Nets, and so far in the battle between these two contenders, things have been rather physical.

Like on this play in the first quarter where Lin was driving toward the basket, that was until he ran into a bit of a roadblock which included a slap in the face, inadvertently, from the Nets’ Deron Williams.

Again, nothing about this looked intentional at all, but it’s also a testament to how hard these two teams play, knowing that the run toward the title is coming up soon.

The Rockets are considered one of the best teams in the West, while the Nets have made an amazing turnaround this year under Jason Kidd.
