Hendricks highlights
team’s keys to success

  1. The Rockets have the MVP

    James Harden is having the best season of his career. He is one of the reasons the Rockets are red-hot right now. He’s averaging 30.4 points per game, 8.8 assists per game and 5.3 rebounds per game. He’s even better in the postseason. He has also improved his defense from his normally slacking skill set, to one of the best two-way guards in the league. Most people who watch the NBA will agree with me in saying he will win the Kia MVP award this year.

  2. The Red-Hot Offense

    The Rockets are the highest scoring team in the NBA and have been all year. With Harden, Eric Gordon, Chris Paul and Trevor Ariza, it’s hard not to score a lot. They are all stellar three-point shooters. With those four and a solid, young post player in Clint Capela, they are a hard team to outscore, defend and beat.

  3. Trevor Ariza

    The Rockets definitely aren’t known for their defense. Trevor Ariza, however, brings an interesting dynamic to the team. He is one of the league’s best defenders. He also can play offense, so he really is an interesting player to see assist the rockets team.

  4. Team Chemistry

    Sure, their roster is fairly young, but Harden, Paul and Ariza have enough playoff experience to lead the Rockets to a championship. The team chemistry is crazy throughout the roster and is another reason they are leading the league in scoring.

  5. The Warriors’ Recent Struggles

    When you look at playoff match-ups, the only real struggle people think the Rockets could have would come in the conference championship against Golden State. The recent struggles of team chemistry and injuries are enough to throw the reigning champs off track, but the Warriors were already going to have their hands full with the Rockets – even if they weren’t having difficulties.
