Original title: Rockets have lost 8 consecutive losses and set 3 shame records! 4.2 billion bosses have lost all property in 4 years: Harden is really wise to leave
Beijing time on February 23, the Rockets lost 100 to 120 at home to the Bulls and suffered an 8-game losing streak. The team's record of 11 wins and 18 losses ranked second in the West. Tucker returned in this battle, but the Rockets are still in a sluggish state. The Rockets' two major players Wall and Gordon are in poor condition. The Rockets encountered three major shame records in this battle. The Rockets also reached the Western Conference Finals three years ago, but today the Rockets have been deceived by everyone and reduced to a big team. The operation of the boss Fertitta in recent years is puzzling.
The last time the Rockets suffered 8 or more losses in a row was in 2001, when the team lost 15 games in a row from November 24 to December 21. The Rockets were beaten by the Bulls 46-26 in the third quarter, and the Bulls created a new high in team history in the third quarter. The Bulls also scored at least 105 points in 12 consecutive away games, creating the longest record in team history. The Rockets' poor defense gave the Bulls a chance to write a record, and this was a humiliation for the Houston Army.
Tucker came back without a point in this battle. Wall scored 15 points on 4 of 14 shots, Gordon made 5 of 18 shots and 1 of 10 three-pointers with 13 points. The Bulls core LaVine scored 21 points and 6 assists, and Kobe White contributed 24 points and 10 rebounds.
The Rockets mainly play five small lineups, Tucker plays center, and the other four starters are Tate, House, Wall and Gordon. The team's interior is completely blown by opponents. New aid Patton scored 2 of 6 shots and only scored 4 points, 6 rebounds and 3 blocks, and 4 fouls occurred. He can't save the Rockets.
The Bulls have an advantage of 55 to 46 rebounds, and the Bulls also have an advantage of 58 to 48 inside. The Rockets have a shortage of insiders, but they have to part ways with Cousins. The reason is that they want to use young insiders. Such a move is puzzling. After all, Cousins's performance this season is fair, averaging 9.6 points, 7.6 rebounds and 2.4 assists per game. , Is the shooting percentage is low, only 37.6%. Considering that Cousins returned from two serious injuries, this situation is understandable.
But did the Rockets really lose patience? The operation of the rocket is too weird. Fertitta bought the Rockets for $2.2 billion in 2017, but in four years, he basically squandered the assets of the Rockets, turning the Houston Army Corps from a thriving team into a championship team. Fish belly team.
In the 2018 offseason, the Rockets did not increase investment on the basis of the team reaching the Western Conference Finals, which became a turning point for the team to become weak. The team let Ariza and Bamott off that summer, resulting in a decline in combat effectiveness. After the bane was planted, the rocket's crown window gradually closed.
Fertitta sits on $4.2 billion in assets, but he has failed to manage the rocket. I have to admit that the Rockets' current record and performance have been difficult to reach the playoffs this season. The Rockets had entered the playoffs for eight consecutive seasons, and Fertitta had been in charge of the Rockets for four years, and the team quickly declined. From this perspective, Harden may be right to leave the Rockets, although some of his actions when he left were somewhat extreme.Return to Sohu to see more
