The Rockets, with two straight wins over Oklahoma City, have momentum in their first-round series. But down 3-2, their backs are still against the wall.

Consider them pressed a little tighter.

Jason Friedman of Rockets.com:

Carlos Delfino has a fractured bone in right foot. Out for the playoffs.

Delfino has been having a nice series, scoring 9.0 points per game and making 11-of-31 pointers off the bench. Without him, spacing the floor will be a little more difficult, though Jeremy Lin’s return could help.

For the Rockets to do the never-been-done and win four straight after trailing 3-0, they’ll need nearly everything to go right. Houston has even less margin for error now.

    huge blow for sure, good thing garcia has stepped up big time. i was wondering though how delfino lasted this long. hes as fragile as it gets and seems to have injuries every year. i look for jlin to have a bigger impact. im scared when lin goes against westbrook but jackson and fisher dont scare me one bit lol

    Oh well – I always say if we get to see more Francisco Garcia it’s a win for the fans
