Pretty cool chart from fivethirtyeight.com about the nba and winning percentage for a game by point in the game:
(click for interactive chart)
(you can select rockets (or any team) from the drop down menu to highlight them).
Lines up with my personal observations of good play following half-time (sign of good coaching adjustments?) and with the lack of execution in the 4th quarter at times, although the spike at the very end of games I think has to do with a certain bearded fella. Also we rest harden at the beginning/middle of the 4th most games so a drop off there isn't too surprising if still a bit disappointing.
(if you don't want to click link and want to look around the black thing, rockets are the 3rd line (1st red one) in the 3rd/4th quarter).
p.s. preemptively im aware of the fact clicking it doesn't load the interactive version (cause i took the code off the page info) but the interactive one is available via the link above.
