The Houston Rockets have now won five in a row, including victories against playoff contenders like the Toronto Raptors, LA Clippers and Cleveland Cavaliers – who they topped in a squeaker Sunday 105 to 103.

The Rockets are now 41-18, just a game and a half behind the Memphis Grizzlies in the battle for first place in the Southwest Division.

Plus: The Houston Dynamo regular season begins Saturday. The Dynamo, of course, failed to make the playoffs last year losing 17 games — the most in club history.

Or not enough change to a roster that struggled mightily to score last season?

We check in on the latest developments in Houston sports with CultureMap Houston columnist MK Bower.
