Malfunctioning Rockets: Why is the Former No. 1 Team on their 5th Straight Loss?

James Harden

Already out of gas? Houston Rockets, the used to be threatening team on the early phase of the season is now down in the pit with 5 straight losses. Is it already over for the Houston Rockets?

If things get even worse, they might not last long in the playoffs or worst, they might not even make it.

It seldom happens for a team like this, especially when with James Harden. Now, we are all interested of the possible reasons that started this catastrophe onto them.


1. Harden's Worst Shooting

James Harden never fails to score high but is frequently unsuccessful of minimizing missed shots especially when Capela was unable to play and no one was there to give a higher probability of getting the rebounds.


2. Everyone but Harden Slacked Off

Staying at the top for a relatively long period of time, the team felt a little bit more comfortable and slacked off except for Harden of course which scored 51 points twice in their 5 straight losses.


3. No Rockets Under the Rim?

They never got an edge on rebounding.

A ton of missed shots from key players plus uncontrolled rebounding equals a terrible defeat which was exactly what happened with the Rockets.


4. Crucial Incorrect Officiating Against Celtics


One call could not have spelled a game but not when a call is not made in a 'winning' shot? Marcus Smart traveled before hitting the shot that cost the game for Rockets. Not missing the call still may not guarantee Rockets' victory yet the ball would be on their side and the odds are in their favor.


Conclusion

The simultaneous weak rebounding and worst shooting is the main problem. Either one of the two shall be fixed so that the Rockets may have the chance to get out from the deep pit.
