Thanksgiving weekend is now behind us and I hope everyone had a nice long weekend. If there’s something I wish we had over the last four days besides a win in Toronto last Friday, it’s better weather. The temperatures last Friday were very, very cold. And on Monday, it rained. Ian Livingston of The Washington Post’s Capital Weather Gang wrote recently that after our early snowstorm on November 15, Washington had 21 days of heavy precipitation, or the equivalent of one inch of rain in a day. It’s been a wet year for sure.
Enough talk about the weather now. The Rockets are 9-9 and are coming off consecutive losses to the Pistons and Cavaliers on the road. Let’s get one more win to smooth out a tumultuous start to the season.
