Do not sleep on the Houston Rockets… In the regular season that is. Hear me out, I love James Harden and Russell Westbrook, I believe this system is perfect for those two and what they want to do. The regular season will be a breeze, uptempo and tons of points. Now the real issue is the playoffs:
Defense. Harden and Westbrook will once again league the league in usage, minutes and turnovers. They will be tired come the playoffs and usage will really play a big role. The lack of effort (at times) on getting back on defense would be a huge issues. Lastly, will there be tension? We saw Chris Paul and Harden give up on each other on offense and defense at times.
Shooting. Harden can struggle at times, and Westbrook will struggle. I am sorry, but we are yet to see him be a efficient three-point shooter in the regular season and in the playoffs. This will not hurt game 42 in the regular season, but it will in the late rounds.
