Harden, Gordon, Covington – what a trio

HOUSTON, TX - MAY 28: James Harden #13 of the Houston Rockets dunks against Jordan Bell #2 of the Golden State Warriors in the second quarter of Game Seven of the Western Conference Finals of the 2018 NBA Playoffs at Toyota Center on May 28, 2018 in Houston, Texas.

The Rockets have already been shooting record numbers from three the last few seasons, but decided earlier this morning I guess that just wasn’t enough.

Even with Eric Gordon and James Harden taking close to and over double digit three point attempts at night, adding Robert Covington – a distinguished “three and d” shooter, the Rockets just become more lethal.

Covington comes to Houston along with teammate Jordan Bell, a former Warrior. Adding Covington with the combination of simply Harden and Westbrook will make an exciting addition.

The Rockets are now in a tough position without the availability of Clint Capela, their leading rebounder – yet will make due because of their number of threats on offensive. They also have the ability to run the offense at an incredibly high tempo, which they can force teams to keep up with.
