- they are the 2nd youngest team in the NBA, but a team of NBA players with a great coach should be able to put their best effort on the floor EVERY night. Not just against the good teams. We should beat the poorer teams, not just scrape by or lose. This is a must if we want to get home court for the playoffs. The Rockets have to beat the weaker teams and play well on the road.
2. Turnovers - when they win, turnovers are always low and vice versa. Francis is usually the leader, but it seems like he gets these turnovers when he tries to force something on offense.
3. Keep Yao in the offensive flow. I don't mind Steve or Cat taking it to the hole or shooting when they are open, but I would like to see Yao touch the ball on every play. It will keep the defense honest and create more open shots after the double team on Yao.
Overall I think the Rockets are in great shape. As the team gels and matures they will solve the problems above. The Rockets play very well at home, which is a good sign. We have depth and more talent than almost any team. I am very excited about this season and the effort from every player. Even when the Rockets lose it doesn't bother me that much because I know that they are learning from their mistakes. The Rockets are going to be scary.
