◼️ The western conference finalists didn’t show their best side at home against the New Orleans and lost at home 131-112.
The Houston Rockets are again favorites in the Western Conference in the NBA season that has just started. But not if they play at the level they showed on Wednesday, in the game they lost 132-112 against the New Orleans Pelicans.
The Texan team lost some players in the offseason and it seems that the new additions, such as Carmelo Anthony, still have not found their place. The forward, who now has his place coming from the bench, scored only 9 points and wasn’t efficient. Neither the current MVP of the league, James Harden, who finished with 18 points taking 15 shots.
