Jackson Gatlin (@JTGatlin) is joined by ESPN 97.5’s Salman Ali (@SalmanAliNBA) to breakdown the Rockets 111-98 Game 2 win over the Oklahoma City Thunder as they take a commanding 2-0 series lead. Topics include the Rockets outstanding defense two games into the postseason, continued bench contributions from Jeff Green and Austin Rivers, the surprising effectiveness of Luguentz Dort on James Harden, shooting struggles for the Rockets back court (Harden and Eric Gordon a combined 2/21 for 10% from distance) and more.
