Heat Check 2020-21: Houston Rockets

The Houston Rockets will be a team that stays in the headlines all season long. Regardless, as long as James Harden is on the roster, they will be competitive. Thus far, him and newly-acquired Christian Wood have been lethal on offense.

It’s the supporting cast who will need to pick things up if the Rockets are to make noise in the playoffs. Both John Wall and DeMarcus Cousins have yet to play this season, but their performance this season will impact the direction this team goes in a big way.
