This was not a "feel-good" game, as some would say. The Bobcats weren't expected to win this game, as the Houston Rockets are a team vying for a playoff spot. But after seeing the Bobcats blow a big lead against the Rockets on January 21st, it seemed as if they at least had a chance. The Rockets came out of the gates quickly, getting out to a 20-10 lead led by Chandler Parsons (who finished the first with 13 points). The Bobcats got back into it with the help of Ramon Sessions. Despite shooting almost 60% from the floor in the first quarter, the Rockets only found themselves up on the Bobcats 32-27.
