Of course Dwight Howard’s injury matters for the Rockets. But what cost them Game 1 against the Warriors was bad turnovers and lapses on defense.
Plus, the NFL’s going to move the line of scrimmage on two-point tries up to the one-yard line. But to do that in the same offseason that they moved back the line on extra-point kicks to the 15 would have been too much, too fast for the sport’s ultra conservative fans and owners.
