The Houston Rockets are trying to fit their roster together so that they can remain competitive in a tough Western Conference, and they have the tools to do so. With speed, height and accuracy, the Rockets can be amazing when they want to be and really bad at other times.
We saw some of the good tonight on some James Harden plays and a few dunks, but the bad came courtesy of Omri Casspi who tried to get in on the slam dunk action and failed miserably at it.
This isn’t what the Rockets want to see when they ask for their big men to be tough in the paint. Yes, Casspi was pretty tough, but he also didn’t come close to making the dunk.
Maybe he’ll get it next time — hopefully.
