Stephen Silas on the shooting slump by Rockets rookie Jalen Green: “He is improving in other parts of the game, and that can’t get lost in the fact that he is missing shots.”
During their hot week, the Rockets scored 113.5 points per 100 possessions, good for 13th in the league during that stretch. They gave up 110.8 points per 100 possessions, good for 14th in the league. For the full season, Houston has the 26th-ranked offense in the league, and the 30th-ranked defense.
The Houston Rockets continue to explore the trade market for John Wall, but they don't appear as willing to move Eric Gordon or Christian Wood ahead of the Feb. 10 deadline. Kelly Iko of The Athletic reported Monday that the Rockets continue to canvass the league in hopes of shedding Wall's contract and providing the five-time All-Star an opportunity to resume his career.
