Working on his shooting
Part of the concern about the hiatus has simply been that players would return to the game rusty. It’s only natural, as the players haven’t been able to train together or even work out with each other.
We’ve even heard how Eric Gordon doesn’t have a basketball goal, and he wasn’t the only one. Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry also didn’t have a goal in his house, until his wife bought him one, which is proof of how it’s not a guarantee that professional basketball players have a goal at home.
House isn’t in that category, as he not only has a goal, but a room to shoot in. House said the below:
I’ve got a goal at my house so I shoot in my little room I’ve got in my house in the back yard. I just want to keep my form so I just go there and make certain shots from each spot. I’ll need 25 or 50 or 70 before I move to the next spot. I just do my spot shooting like that, and I play with the ball off the dribble just to continue to get better in that aspect and I’m still working on my ball handling.
House has been doing extensive work on his shooting, which is great for Houston Rockets fans to hear, as his 36.6 percent from long-range was already one of the four best shooting percentages on the team. He talks about working on his spot-shooting and making a certain number of shots before moving to the next spot on the court.
He’s also working on his ball handling, which is again proof of how serious he’s been training and taking his workouts. Although this isn’t the same as practicing at the Toyota Center, it sounds like he’s doing alot more training than many other players are right now.
