Houston Rockets Drain Ridiculous 22 Triples to Down San Antonio Spurs in Game 1

By Anthony Blake

In a rout that included a 30-point lead at halftime, the Houston Rockets saw a record 22 three-pointers find the bottom of the net as they trampled the San Antonio Spurs to steal Game 1 on the road.

Here’s a look at every triple the Rockets downed in their one-sided whipping of Gregg Popovich and company.

This is an interesting series for a number of reasons, not the least of which being that it pits Mike D’Antoni and his ‘shoot early and often’ style against the tried and true ‘just win’ mentality of Popovich.

These NBA Playoffs have been somewhat mundane to this point.

Watching the Rockets beat the Spurs would be an upset on paper, but no one would be surprised if it happened.

The only real upset would be if every game in the series were as one-sided as Game 1.
