Rockets try to stay perfect
(AP) — Houston tries to continue its roll through the early portion of the NBA schedule when it hosts San Antonio tonight as part of a two-game NBA schedule.
The Rockets are off to a 5-0 start built on the strength of three-point shooting. Houston has scored 213 points from beyond the arc this season, as opposed to 198 points on 2-pointers.
It’s the first time the Rockets have won their first five games since the 1996-97 season, when they opened with a 6-0 mark.
The defending NBA champ Spurs are coming off a two-point home win over Atlanta last night. They’ve only played three games this season.
Dallas has won three in a row heading into its game at Portland.
