With October out of the way, let’s take a look at the three biggest Houston Rockets games in November that you don’t want to miss.

Despite struggles on the defensive end of the floor, the Houston Rockets have shown a lot of great signs in the early stages of the regular season.

Houston’s three victories have a combined margin of just eight points. A case can be made that Houston should’ve defeated some of their weaker opponents, like the Pelicans, by a bigger margin, but the Rockets have shown they can win close games and execute effectively when everything is on the line. That’s a huge win for a team that is still trying to get a new superstar integrated into the offense.

Speaking of Houston’s newest addition, Russell Westbrook has exceeded early season expectations so far. He’s averaging a triple double once again, but what’s more impressive is his 48.5 field goal percentage and the fact that he’s averaging 11.8 points in the fourth quarter, which ranks second in the NBA only to Damian Lillard.

Russell Westbrook and the Houston Rockets will look to continue stacking W’s in the win column as they head into November, beginning with a meeting with the Nets in Brooklyn on the first day of the month. Let’s take a look at three Houston Rockets games in November that you don’t want to miss.
