Time to decompress from the trade deadline onslaught of news.
The Rockets beat the Kings this week in strong form and some of it had to do with the great energy that Chris Paul and company brought to the floor. Here is a cool heads up play to get Eric Gordon some space from deep.
James Harden is a good basketball player. Two nights ago, Harden dropped 36 points and was unconscious from deep, going 8/13. To make #NBAtwitter even more mad, he only took two free throw attempts.h
Not sure if anyone’s paying attention, but Gerald Green has caught fire recently. He’s averaging 19.7 points per game over the last three games and has made 12 out of his last 27 three point attempts. Look at this sweet jumper.h
Safe to say that Chris Paul has had a poor year statistically. However, on any given night he is still able to showcase his remarkable, jaw-dropping passing skills. On this play he is able to penetrate, look off the defense, and throw a gorgeous string right to James Harden 25 feet out.
Final thought: Welcome to Houston, Iman Shumpert!
