Red94 Week In Review

The technology giant Elon Musk apparently sang, “RIP Harambe, Sipping on some Bombay,” on a new track he made and uploaded to SoundCloud. What does the world do with this information?

The Rockets have gone 4-1 since last Friday and are really getting into a groove lately.

The Rockets made quick work of the Pelicans to start off the week thanks to Eric Gordon who went 6-11 from deep. Here Iman Shumpert uses a pick to penetrate and allow Eric Gordon to get separation from deep. The Rockets will need that automaticity from him come playoff time.

The next game the Rockets lost a tough one to the Milwaukee Bucks who thoroughly dominated them. Not only did James Harden shoot 34.6% on the game, the team as a whole shot 30.8% from deep. Not good.

Here is the best play of the game without comment.

Subsequently, the Rockets absolutely demolished the Denver Nuggets and it was not close whatsoever. The Rockets held the Nuggets to a 90.2 offensive rating. James Harden dropped 38 points on efficient shooting but the real story of this game was Austin Rivers. Rivers was a plus 34 (!) on the game as he shot 60% from the field and put up 15 points. Here he uses his strength to muscle his way into the lane in order to put up a high arching shot off the glass and in.

Finally, the Rockets had a battle with the Kings at home on Saturday night. James Harden scored 50 points on 31 shots and tallied ten assists to only three turnovers. One of those assists was to a wide-open Danuel House in the corner.

Final Thoughts: Let’s finish off the season strong. Elon Musk continues to be one of the more perplexing characters of the current generation.
