Rockets focusing on Heat after topping Warriors

HOUSTON -- Locked in a stretch of games where the challenges are severe and unique, the Rockets attempted to avoid lingering too long on their win against the Golden State Warriors.

The Rockets (32-12) will host the Miami Heat on Monday night at Toyota Center having already defeated the Minnesota Timberwolves and Warriors at home in succession. And while some in the postgame locker room on Saturday night shifted their focus to the Heat, others acknowledged the significance of beating the Warriors for a second time this season and securing the tiebreaker in the event the teams complete the season with the same record.

Golden State presents challenges that few teams can successfully counter. That Houston survived matters both in the immediate future with a quality squad like Miami upcoming, and down the line in the event that the Rockets and Warriors square off in the postseason.
