Rockets Depth Chart For The 2018-19 Season

Recommended Posts

What's the point of gloating when a team wins a road game in which they're heavily favored and they win the game by 23? After beating the Lakers by 39 points in each of their last two meetings, winning by just 23 is actually kinda disappointing. And Harden scoring 36 isn't much to gloat about either considering the way he's playing right now.

 

The only real accomplishment, thanks in large part to Ball scoring just two points in 22 minutes, was the Rockets winning their sixth consecutive road game by 15 points or more.

 

That makes Houston the first team in NBA history with a streak that long. Other teams who had done that in 5 straight road games all won championships. Hopefully history once again repeats itself, but Golden State will certainly make that difficult.

Wow, Lonzo is awful. 2 points???? Hahahaha

Lol. He only took 4 shots. 

 

Simmons put up only 6 the other day. Thats great too.

 

And how many has Fultz scored this year? 

 

Fults also only scored 2 in his 4th game. Where were you then...

 

You cant show your Lakers hate toward those guys, I get it.

Lol. You're still living in the past. Now back to this incredibly deep Rockets team that will average 115+. So is CP3 who just had his worst offensive season throughout his entire career. The same guy who Rockets fans think brings them closer to GSW. Haha. Delusional.

Right now they're averaging 114 PPG, even though they were without CP3 for 14 games. So they should get up in the 115-120 range soon enough. And of course they're right at the top of the Western conference along with Golden State. But I just don't get how you seem to think Paul just had his "worst offensive season" when he averaged 18.1 PPG and 9.2 APG last season (numbers Lonzo can only dream of). Those numbers are barely below his career averages, and his numbers the past 8 seasons have shown no drop off at all with nothing but pure consistency.

 

Sure his scoring will likely go down a bit this season with Houston, but only because he has Harden to carry most of the load plus so many other guys like Gordon, Ariza, Capela, and Anderson all scoring above 10 PPG themselves.

Chris Paul made 124 3-point shots last season, the 2nd highest total of his career, at a rate of 41.1% which was the highest of his HOF career (so far). He shot 47.6% overall, a number Lonzo could never hope to even come close to with his pathetic shooting skills. Paul also averaged 25.3 PPG in the playoffs, also the highest of his career.

The Banana Boat could be coming to Houston, even without Carmelo.

 

If LeBron does decide to come here next summer, and Wade follows him, the Rockets could fill their banana boat with James, Paul, Wade, and Harden. Of course they would have to find a way to get rid of Anderson and his $20M per season, but if anyone can make it happen it's Daryl Morey. Houston would also have to let Capela and Ariza walk in free agency, and probably Mbah a Moute as well, but they would still have Gordon, Nene, and PJ Tucker (plus Zhou Qi) to go along with their big 4.

They finished strong. One tenth of a second more on the clock and they lose though. 

 

After watching that game I can't see them winning more than 2 in a 7 game set.

Tonight's 99-98 loss to Boston was nearly identical to the first game of the season when Houston beat Golden State 122-121.

 

Both losing teams lost on the final play after leading the game almost wire-to-wire if not for a miracle comeback by the winner.

 

Yet somehow in your mind the severely short-handed Rockets are "overrated AF", but you give them zero credit for winning in the opener.

Lmao.

 

GSW didnt committ back to back dumb ass offensive penalties because they let someone get in their head.

 

Durant actually hit the game winner but was a tenth of a second slow on the release.

 

Your MVP just threw away the game because hes a crybaby flopping bitch that thinks he should get every call. Litetally ran Smart over twice and complained as if he did nothing.

 

Durant and GSW got beat by the clock. HOU lost because Hardens a mentally weak scrub bucket.

 

And of course you got excuses. Severly shorthanded down two starters? Ok. Boston was down a starter. So you were short one more person than them. Big deal.

 

Unless you want to say not having Luc was some huge loss. His 6 points and 3 boards is severely tough to overcome....

We'll see.

The Lakers did get lucky winning in Philly, Charlotte, and especially in Houston. But during that 15-game stretch (11/29-12/31) they did go 3-12.

Even without Harden the Rockets aren't going 2-7 in their next nine games, although the Lakers will probably do no better than that.

 

Although I certainly wouldn't mind them upsetting either OKC or San Antonio during that stretch. Too bad that lottery pick goes to Boston.

Considering you only play 2 teams with at least 2 more wins than losses in your next 7 or 8, Im sure you're right.

 

Magic, Warriors, Trailblazers 2x, Pistons, Suns, Clippers.

 

What a easy ass schedule.

 

I hope yall win more than 2.

They should have no problem doing that after dominating the hapless Magic, perhaps the only team playing worse than LA right now.

 

Of course they will have to play a whole lot better tomorrow night when the Warriors come to town if they want to pull the upset.
