What is wrong with the Houston Rockets? Sure they don't have Capela right now and CP3 just returned from injury, but is that really the problem? Every team deals with injuries, and the great ones find ways to win despite that. Tonight's game was their worst performance of the year, if you want to call it a performance.
Houston went 14-of-48 from downtown, and most of these attempts were wide open looks. Many of these missed shots were short, including 3 air balls that I counted. The Wizards on the other hand shot an outstanding 50% from beyond the arc, going 18-of-36.
There was just a lack of energy the entire game, and they couldn't keep up with Washington, who had 19 fast break points.
Mike D'Antoni pulled his starters with 6 minutes left in the 4th quarter. "Mentally we're fine, we got some tired legs and we're missing the big guy (Capela) in the middle."
Clint Capela will play on Sunday at home against the Lakers. Let's see if they can get back in rhythm with all of their starters back. They need to fix it soon, because they host the Warriors Thursday night on national television.
