On Memorial Day, the Houston Rockets showed that they have fight in them, by not allowing the Golden State Warriors to close out the series on the Rockets home floor.
But local Rockets fans likely missed the game because of severe thunder storms and flash floods that hit the area, knocking out power. Inside the Toyota Center, several fans, and center Dwight Howard were stranded until six AM Tuesday morning.

Fans who left the arena and live within 30 minutes of the arena, reported up to 3 hour drives to get home.
