Houston Rockets: Player grades against the Hornets

Houston Rockets: Player grades against the Hornets

That's how strong the Rockets are supposed to be, given that they are powered by the fantastic backcourt tandem of James Harden and Chris Paul, who don't seem to be having any problem co-existing alongside each other, as evidenced by their current win streak.

Well, according to Basketball-Reference.com, one of Harden's teammates deserves some of the credit for how well Houston has been playing this year, and it's not Chris Paul. Treveon Graham answered by canning a 19-footer to cut the Rockets lead to 24-23, but the Rockets closed the quarter on a 14-0 run, and scored the first 11 points of the second quarter, giving them a 26-point lead.

"We got stops and Chris got hot", he said.

The Hornets were able to close the gap to 63-49 at halftime behind a strong first half performance from Dwight Howard, who had 18 points and 10 rebounds at the break. "That advantage is going to be key for us". Houston shot 17-of-45 from three-point range (37.8 percent), while the Hornets went just 4-of-21 from behind the arc (19.0 percent)...

Dwight Howard reminded one of his former teams how good he can still be, but otherwise the Charlotte Hornets had no chance Wednesday. He had 13 points and six rebounds. • The Rockets are 2-1 in the second game of back-to-backs this season after going 13-3 in 2016-17 Houston has 11 sets of back-to-backs remaining this season with the next coming vs. San Antonio on 12/15 and vs. Milwaukee on 12/16. He ranks fifth in the National Basketball Association with 1.88 blocks a game and has also improved on offense this season.

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist notched his first double-double of the season, finishing with 18 points on 8-of-12 shooting, a season-high 11 rebounds and two assists... Charlotte has grown overly reliant upon the scoring prowess of dynamic guard Kemba Walker, whose individual exploits haven't prevented Charlotte from ranking 20th in offensive rating (103.3) while also sitting in the bottom 10 in field-goal percentage (27th) and effective field-goal percentage (29th).
