Are the Rockets just dumb or did they create a new evolution of basketball?

    The Rockets are known for playing “small-ball” but after trading away Capela (their 6-10 center and the only big man on the roster that got any meaningful playing time) for a wing player without getting a center back, they’re taking small ball to a whole new level.

    Their line-up last night against the Lakers with a rotation of AD, Dwight Howard, and Javale McGee was:

    Westbrook - 6’3”
    Harden - 6’5”
    Gordon - 6’4”
    Covington - 6’7”
    Tucker - 6’5” (started at center lol)

    That might be by far the shortest starting line-up in NBA history and they end up beating the Lakers by 10.

    The Sun created the 7 second offense, the Warriors created the “chunk up 3’s at will” offense. Are the Rockets on to something in the future with this new “no big man” offense and defense?

    Dumb. They got destroyed by a bad suns team. It won't work in a 7 game series.

    No Westbrook on a back to back.
