The Houston Rockets are Blasting Off

And they don't look like they're slowing down anytime soon

James Harden and Chris Paul

Anyone who says that James Harden and Chris Paul cannot play together should probably keep their mouth shut because if they haven't noticed just yet, the dynamic duo of Harden and CP3 is one of the reasons why the Houston Rockets are the best team in the NBA right now with a 21-4 record. Yes, they are better than the defending champions, the Golden State Warriors and even defeated the Cleveland Cavaliers earlier this season.

Ever since Chris Paul made his season debut after fully recovering from his injury, things have been well for the Rockets as they have yet to lose a game with Chris Paul in the line-up. And heading into their next game against the Charlotte Hornets, the Rockets are riding on a 10-game winning streak.


Question: Just how good are the Rockets?

For starters, James Harden has been playing another MVP-worthy season as he's currently the league's leading scorer- averaging 32 points per game while also averaging 9.5 assists per game- the second-best behind Russell Westbrook. Clint Capela, who exploded for a good number of dunks off dishes from James Harden in their last game against the New Orleans Pelicans- is the league's best shooter right now, making 67% of his field goal attempts and also among the top 5 in blocks per game.

As a team, the Rockets' 115 points per game ranks second behind the Warriors' 117. They're also the number 3 team in terms of steals per game, averaging 9 steals per night.

But more than anything else, it's Chris Paul's mere presence on the floor that has been doing the wonders for Houston. In the 11 games that he played so far- all wins, CP3 has averaged 14 points and 9 assists per game. He has provided James Harden the stability at the point guard position as CP3 is only averaging 1.9 turnovers per game- the lowest in his career.


Conclusion

If anything, the Rockets are having one of the best seasons in franchise history. At the pace that they are playing right now with a backcourt duo of James Harden and Chris Paul leading them, this pundit on wheels doesn't think any team can catch up with the duo. Not even the Warriors.
