The Houston Rockets Bench
*Game Note-*Note: The Rockets played Tyson Chandler, Thabo Sefolosha, Ryan Anderson and Ben McLemore for 10 minutes or less each, and thus they were not graded.
Although it’s still very early in the year, the Rockets have shown themselves to be battle-tested, and able to pull out tight games, as they’ve won three games consecutively by an average of 2.66 points per game. Russell Westbrook has continued to dominate and show Rockets Nation why it was a smart move for General Manager Daryl Morey to bring him to Houston in the first place. The Brodie has had a double-double in every game this season, and currently averages 22.5 points per game, 12 rebounds per game and 10.3 assists per game, which ranks second in the league.
The Rockets travel to Brooklyn for their next game against the Brooklyn Nets on Friday, November 1st. This will be the Rockets’ second nationally televised game, as it will be on ESPN. Tip-off is at 6 PM CT.
