When you’re up 3-1, you can afford to have a bit of a sense of humor when game time comes around.

The Houston Rockets, noted rivals of the Oklahoma City Thunder, decided to show everyone just how confident they were that they would close out the series by wearing all black upon their arrival at the Toyota Center for Game 5—presumably for the Thunder’s “funeral” following a Houston win and elimination.

I’m not sure how much it influenced the outcome, but it sure looked cool.




Maybe, if they’re down in a future series, they can wear white to symbolize a rebirth.
