For the second time in the month of November, the Houston Rockets blew out the Indiana Pacers to run a winning streak to six. The first time that happened, they lost the very next game. It’s less likely the current winning streak will end so soon this time around.
The Rockets have been world-beaters in the first month and a half of the season. They survived without Chris Paul and have only gotten better now that he’s back.
What Paul gives Mike D’Antoni is a solution to his most obvious problem from last season: how to keep his team competitive when James Harden rests. The two All-Stars still play together but the Coach of the Month for October/November has been staggering their minutes so that the Rockets are never without one of them on the floor.
As a result, Houston is outscoring opponents throughout the game and not just in spurts. That has led to a lot of blowouts and a lot of covers for the top team in the Western Conference.
Los Angeles Lakers
Los Angeles took Golden State to overtime in its last game but the Warriors emerged victorious after a big five-minute period for Steph Curry.
Lonzo Ball shot the ball better and finished with 15 points. He hit back-to-back threes in the third quarter, which is Reddit-worthy every time.
It’s still early and the Lakers will make a run at the playoffs if they manage to continue improving as the season goes on. The Western Conference isn’t as strong as it was once thought to be, especially at the bottom. And Los Angeles has the talent to challenge for a spot if it can take care of the bad teams and win a couple of games like this one here.
