If LeBron does end up leaving the Cavaliers next season, he’s going to go a place with a great situation and that place is in Houston.
This four-team trade will likely be much harder than anything else he’s had to do as a G.M.
Next season what the team needs is more sharpshooters and someone who can lead the second unit be it Williams or someone else, that’s what will take the Rockets to the next level, not George or Paul.
Instead of Mike D’Antoni rallying the troops like President Whitmore from his epic speech during Independence day, the Rockets somehow looked even worse, eventually falling by 39 points.
By the end of the half, the Spurs would make it a four-point game, and with Nene out and injured and Clint Capela it looked like the Rockets might be in trouble.
Despite being held to 36% from the field the Rockets were always within striking distance, they just weren’t able to get consistent offense.
The Rockets for three-quarters hung in with the Spurs and despite James Harden having an off night with only 13 points, the game was 88-83.
James Harden got the Rockets off to a fast start scoring 11 points and he was responsible for another 13 points off of assists, helping the team run out to a 34-23 lead in the first quarter.
Beverley will have many jobs against the Spurs and will be a key reason if the team will advance or not.
