NBA Writer Mark Schindler on the Progress of Rockets’ Young Core

Wednesday’s episode of “The Lager Line” welcomes national NBA writer Mark Schindler to the show for a roundtable Houston Rockets discussion with hosts Ben DuBose and Paulo Alves.

Though the Rockets are clearly in a rebuilding movement, the 2-12 start — which, entering Wednesday, is the NBA’s worst record — has clearly underwhelmed many fans.

One prominent reason for those struggles is Houston’s struggling offense, which ranks in the bottom five of the NBA despite featuring numerous scorers and playmakers. With that in mind, the show explores whether head coach Stephen Silas or point guard Kevin Porter Jr. is more worthy of criticism.

Other discussion topics include growth shown from second-year prospects Jalen Green and Alperen Sengun; a slow start by rookie Jabari Smith Jr.; promising signs by reserves KJ Martin and Tari Eason; whether it still makes sense to keep Eric Gordon; and more.
