The Houston Rockets will head down to Orlando with questions regarding their new approach to the game and health. With news dropping that Russell Westbrook has COVID-19 and now possibly James Harden, the Rockets will begin the resumption shorthanded.
Nevertheless, when the Rockets are at full strength they will give teams fits. But can a Mike D’Antoni-led team make it to the Finals and win one?
