The Houston Rockets are coming off their first loss of the season as they head into Philadelphia to take on the 76ers. Philadelphia is coming off their first win of the season as Ben Simmons is on fire.
The Houston Rockets took their first loss of the season tonight, falling at home to the Memphis Grizzlies 98-90.
The Rockets were victimized by some horribly inconsistent officiating, including a questionable offensive foul called on James Harden in the fourth quarter after running into Mario Chalmers.
It was a rough game for the Houston Rockets as they were pushed around as nothing went there way.
With looking to improve the guard position, the Houston Rockets made a move that will be returning a fan favorite. The Rockets on Tuesday signed guard Isaiah Canaan to a one-year, non-guaranteed contract, two individuals with knowledge of the deal said.
Canaan was the Rockets’ second-round pick in 2013 before he was traded to Philadelphia for K.J. McDaniels. He averaged 12.6 points per game for the 76ers that season and 11.4 points over two seasons with the 76ers.
This is a right move for Houston as they travel to Philadelphia knowing they can improve the position with ease.
Ben Simmons has led the Philadelphia 76ers to their first win of the regular season with a triple-double that made Australian basketball history and placed him in the NBA record books alongside greats Oscar Robertson, Charles Barkley and Shaquille O’Neal.
The 21-year-old from Melbourne, in just his fourth NBA game, was superb with 21 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists in Monday’s 97-86 victory against the Detroit Pistons.
The 76ers, despite high expectations, opened the NBA regular season with losses in their first three games.
Simmons and centre Joel Embiid, with 30 points and nine rebounds, were too strong for a Pistons squad that falls to a two-win, two-loss season record.
Andrew Bogut, Luc Longley, Patty Mills, Andrew Gaze and the growing list of Australian NBA players have never achieved a triple-double.
Simmons, who was forced to miss all of last season with a foot injury after going No. 1 in the 2016 draft, became the first player since Shaquille O’Neal in 1992 — four years before Simmons was born — to record double-doubles in his first four games
