With an outstanding performance by the Houston Rockets and the Boston Celtics on both ends of their respective conferences? Will their spot at number 1 be guaranteed until they enter the playoffs?
Okay, both squads had a shockingly improved performance. Here are two electrifying things which personally dropped my jaw. The Rockets managed to score 90 points with only 24 minutes. Outscoring Warriors' full game score in some of their matches while Boston Celtics unleashed a 16 - 0 run. Quite big right?
Let us talk about the Houston Rockets first. They managed to beat their rival Warriors and the tightest rival of their rival, the Cleveland Cavaliers. This was the biggest of wins. Crushing two of the considered to be best teams the league has ever had.
James Harden is consistent in all of their games even in their losses. He is the main source of Rockets' offensive power. Impeccable in playmaking as well as finishing. Harden will lead Rockets on their road to glory and will carry them, bonded together on top 'til the end of the regular season.
On the other hand, the Boston Celtics loss against the Cleveland Cavaliers, which happens to be the must beat team in the east for the team to be recognized as the best one. Nevertheless, a 16 win streak is far from ordinary. But guaranteeing them to finish at the top spot isn't for certain. The Cavs are running a late sizzle and they are now trailing behind Boston Celtics in a blink of an eye.
