It didn’t take long for the Houston Rockets to mesh together after going out and signing center Dwight Howard during the offseason, and they will be looking to make it further in the postseason than they did a year ago. The Rockets open up their playoff run with Game 1 against the Portland Trail Blazers on Sunday afternoon, and they are looking to make an immediate impact from the jump.
“Just being here is not good enough,” said Chandler Parsons, via ESPN.com. “We want to win and we want to contend for a championship and we want to be the last team standing.”
The Trail Blazers are also looking to make some noise in the postseason, but it won’t be easy and they will need to overcome the Rockets homecourt advantage.
