Charlie Pallilo: Game 1 is a must-win for the Rockets

The Rockets finally play Game 1 tonight after waiting with anticipation for almost a week. Winning Game 1 will be critical for Houston because having to win 4 out 0f 6 against Golden State is asking too much from the Rockets. The series will feature the best back-court matchup in 30 years, so that will definitely be something to keep an eye on. Charlie believes the Warriors will win a hard-fought series in six games.

Finally, the Astros begin a critical three-game set against the Angels tonight, and the outcome of the series will signify if the Angels are ready to hang with Houston over the long-term in the AL West.
