Rockets owner Tilman Fertitta: 'Our time is going to come'

This past summer (and during the season), Rockets' owner Tilman Fertitta's front office made some money-saving moves that kept the team from paying the luxury tax.

The moves worked, the Rockets shed payroll and will not be taxpayers this year.
