The Houston Rockets played some of their best basketball last month. Here are three takeaways from March.
The Houston Rockets really hit their stride in March. Outside of a few minor injuries, it was by far their healthiest month as a team, as Mike D’Antoni decided to rest some players in order to give other guys enough playing time to stay in rhythm.
Having a full team allowed the Rockets to win 12 of their 15 games in March, helping them move from the fifth seed up to third.
James Harden continued to play great basketball in what should be his second MVP season. The Beard averaged 35.6 points, 6.3 rebounds and 7.0 assists in March, which would be an insane month if he didn’t have similar averages for the entire season.
The Rockets also walked away with huge wins in the third month of the year. They beat Boston, Toronto, Philadelphia and Denver by double digits, proving they can hang with the best teams in the league.
We learned a lot about the Rockets in March, so here are the three biggest takeaways.
