The Rockets aren't that good of a shooting team. When they run the floor, they not only get a lot of lay-ups, and free throws, but they get wide-open 3 point shots. The Rockets can hit open 3's some games. Some games they are hitting, and some games they aren't. But some teams slow down the Rockets and limit their fast breaks. This causes them to run their half-court offense, which is just average. They don't have the same shooting opportunities in the half-court offense that they do when they are running and gunning. So they miss more shots. So combine these 3 facts. 1. Rockets aren't a great 3-point shooting team. But open 3-pointers from running the floor makes it easier for them to hit 3's. 2. When they are limited in their fast break opportunities, their shooting percentage suffers. 3. Some nights they just have off-shooting nights. So this combination leads to a lot of inconsistency. So, if the Rockets are going to play their current style, then they need better shooters. If they aren't going to get better shooters, then they need to improve their half-court offense.
