Rockets in a world of hurt
Houston — Only three teams have ever come back after losing the first two games of a seven-game series at home – the 1968-69 Lakers, the 1993-94 Rockets and the 2004-05 Mavericks (against the Rockets).
Since the Rockets’ championship seasons (1993-94 and 1994-95) every time they lost Game 1, they also lost Game 2. In each of the previous six of those instances, they also lost the series.
