Do you see a team, after a very rough six games, competing gamely on a back-to-back against a potentially title-contending Rockets team? Or do you see a team that has now lost four straight at home and has some serious defensive issues? Several hours later, I can’t totally commit to either narrative (and you can’t make me!)
