rockets fan here. was wondering what the sentiment was about the rockets from other fans.
i wasn't expecting much from this team this year. i thought, as the youngest team in the league, that they would be wildly inconsistant.
so far they have the #1 offense in the league, putting up 105 PPG, and that was before tonights 120 point outburst against the bulls.
they put up 121 points to the grizzlies two nights ago (The top defensive team in the league).
overall, all of there players have been playing very well. they have a ton of valauble trade chips. asik is averaging 11 and 11, marcus morris, chandler parsons, and patrick patterson are all affordable young players who have shown they can play at a high level in the nba. they also have donatas motiejunas and terrance jones who havent been able to see the floor this year, despite playing exeptionally well this summer.
so...what are your thoughts on this young rockets squad? lin and harden get a lot of the attention but this team is young and well-rounded.
they're currently the 6th seed at 15-12 although the season is still very early
