The Houston Rockets introduced a new brand of small ball with PJ Tucker (6′ 5″) playing center. The first game was a success as the Rockets defeated the Lakers in LA. But, it’s not enough to convince sports analyst Chris Broussard that they can go all the way.
“Being relevant, winning 50 games and going out in the 2nd round is not enough. They won’t win the championship playing like this… They shoot a lot of 3’s, but they’re 21st in the league in 3PT percentage,” Broussard said on the Undisputed show:
The Rockets are currently fourth in the Western Conference with a 33-18 record, trailing behind the Lakers, Clippers and the Nuggets.
