It’s finally here. The NBA postseason has arrived, after what feels like one of the most injury-plagued seasons in recent memory (at least where the big names are concerned). The Houston Rockets had plenty of injury troubles of their own, but will still enter the playoffs as the 2nd seed in the Western Conference, thanks to some fortuitous outcomes on the very last day of the season...
