THE ROCKETS AREN'T THERE YET!Written by: Craig Shelton

That was an excellent job by the Rockets taking down Oklahoma City, 112-101, last night at Toyota Center!
Please allow me to point out what concerns me with Kevin McHale's team.
The loss to Orlando on Wednesday night was a classic "trap game" to overlook Orlando with games versus OKC and Golden State looming. I get that.
The Orlando game "should have been" a tune-up game for a seasoned championship level team.
That's how teams like GS or San Antonio attack weak opponents the likes of the Magic or the Philly 76ers, before back-to-back match-ups with marquee opponents such as Houston or OKC.
My intent isn't to make a major stink about the Orlando loss on Wednesday. I just wanted to point out the next level of team growth needed "mentally" to solidify the Rockets as a "true" NBA championship contender.
