It’s very nice to be watching these guys now. They have their own plan, and they stick to it. For those who think basketball is a game for giants, the Houston Rockets are rediscovering this stereotype. Speed, attacking skills and maximum concentration on both halves of the court do wonders. Ever since the rockets started playing tarball on a permanent basis, they have had 8 wins in 10 games. And that one defeat was from “Utah” after Bogdanovic’s early home thrill. The Texans are fine, and there is a feeling that very soon they will get close, if not to Lakers, then to Denver.
What can prevent Houston from winning further? Only Houston itself. For example, for the last game against New York, James Harden & Co flew straight from the farewell ceremony with Kobe Bryant. Even the warm-up was a little late. By the way, Russell Westbrook never played against the Knicks in the end. It is clear that such teams a Knicks Houston should win with his eyes closed, but we have not once seen the Rockets playing great, gavin really terrible performance. And it wasn’t just this season (the Rockets were in seventh place in the conference at one point), it happens every year. There’s a feeling that the super-motivated Memphis will put Mike D’Anthoni’s boys in their place.
Yeah, it’s time the calendar started making preassure on Memphis. Sooner or later, it had to happen. If not so long ago the gap from the 9th place was in the area of 6 victories, now the number has decreased to 2. In theory, the Portland Trail Blazers may overtake the Grizzlies in the Western standings as early as next week.
What should Memphis do in all this situation? Come out and fight. Taylor Jenkins’s team has a big advantage over most other NBA teams. They weren’t actually expected to do anything and they aren’t expected to do anything. Fans will easily forgive them their ninth and even fifteenth place in the conference. It’s much easier to play basketball in this atmosphere. Due to their lightness and youth the Grizzlies have already beaten Houston in this regular. Moreover, Jenkins’s boys didn’t lose more than 7 points to Houston this season. They will not lose even now, moreover, maybe they will catch on to something more.
