The Houston Rockets decided to go small, after trading Clint Capella on February.

While being fifth in the West, the team showed great inconsistency from time to time this season.

Houston’s sharpshooter Eric Gordon addressed the issue speaking to Cayleigh Griffin on AT&T SportsNet Southwest’s Instagram.

“We’ve had a lot of highs and lows this year. This being my fourth year with this team, we’ve had more highs and low moments more than any year that I’ve been here,” Gordon said.

“The toughest thing, for as talented as our team is, we’ve really never reached our peak. We might have reached our peak for a game or two. When teams win the championship, those teams are always consistent, and they’re always dominant. We’ve shown that we can be dominant for games, but we haven’t been that consistent all year.”

“It’s like, ‘When are we going to flip the switch and really get it together, to where we’re doing all the little things to help us win?’ The change to play really, really small… that always takes an adjustment as well. We’re a good enough team to overcome a lot, and now we’ve got to do all the little things.”

The Rockets’ veteran lost 30 games due to injury, but should the season continue, he will be ready and fully healed in order to help his team achieve its goals this season.
