The Rockets front office has big dreams and high hopes for how they’ll fare in the playoffs — should they happen — despite the team’s slow start
Houston’s roster changes and adaptation to “small ball” did produce some success early on, although it remains to be seen how it could fare in the playoffs, once the game slows down in the half court. The Rockets lack a big man that can control the post, and that could be an issue in the postseason.
However, Rockets general manager Daryl Morey is remaining optimistic and keeping his sights set on a title. In fact, he already has an “excuse” for what the optics will look like if the Rockets win an NBA championship this season — which he tied to the Astros’ tainted 2017 World Series campaign.
