Rockets Matt Bullard states the Rockets’ case
We’ll obviously never know how a Houston Rockets vs. Chicago Bulls NBA Finals matchup would have gone, because it ultimately never happened. But former Rockets sniper Matt Bullard knows exactly how it would’ve played out. Bullard was on KHOU’s Sports Extra on Sunday night and answered the question of whether the Rockets would’ve defeated the Bulls in the NBA Finals, if such a matchup existed.
“Absolutely. There’s no question. The Rockets were 5-1 against the Bulls during their first 3-peat, so we had the formula to beat them. We had Vernon Maxwell to guard Michael Jordan and we had Hakeem Olajuwon and they had nobody to match up against Hakeem.”
This is similar to what former Rockets guard Kenny Smith stated recently, as The Jet explained that the Rockets felt confident in their chances against the Bulls. But as Bullard points out, the Rockets went 5-1 during the Bulls’ first three championship seasons.
