LA Clippersvs Houston Rockets Betting Tips

have been perfect (they have not), but you always know that the goal is winning a championship and every move is made through that lens. One of the blessings of being a Rockets fan is that you never worry that the front office is going to make a mistake. Thats not to say Daryl Morey and co.
