Covers Preview -
The Houston Rockets have no idea who they’ll be facing in the first round of the playoffs and coach Kevin McHale doesn’t even think it matters. “Whoever we play, we will not be favored,” McHale told reporters. “We’ll be underdogs to whoever we play. That’s fine with us. We want to get in there and get the guys playing well.” While the Rockets face steep odds in the postseason, they’ll be solid favorites Monday when they visit the lowly Phoenix Suns.
