Rockets Selling $1 Beers Before Game 5

The Thunder face an elimination game against the Rockets tonight, and it’s looking like it will be a tall task to move the series back to Oklahoma City. Why? Well obviously there’s James Harden to deal with… plus a Rockets home court that will be out of control after crushing $1 pre-game beers.

Really. Apparently the Rockets are combating late crowds by offering cheap booze — as well as nachos, sodas — to those who get to the Toyota Center early:

#RedNation, Game 5 is tomorrow! Get to @ToyotaCenter early & cheer on the #Rockets. $1 Beers, Sodas, Nachos & Hot Dogs from 5:30 – 6:30PM!

And just like that, the BC office will be all over Rockets social tonight scouring for lit fans causing some ruckus. Don’t disappoint us.

Pat Beverley and Trevor Ariza have some thoughts on $1 beer night:

Beverley on dollar beer from 5:30 to 6:30 tonight: "What kind of beer is it? It’s got to be cheap stuff. Ain’t no Miller Lite for a dollar.”

Trevor Ariza on how the crowd will be with it being $1 beer night: "Good."
