At 10:00 on July 10th, Beijing time, the Houston Rockets will usher in the third game of the NBA Summer League. The opponent is the Sacramento Kings. The Rockets have lost both games before, and the Kings have already played. 5 games of the Summer United, 3 wins and 2 losses, including the victory over the Chinese team.
The Rockets lost to the Lone Ranger by a big score in the first game. The team had almost no tactics and cooperation. They relied on singles and three-pointers to complete the offense, and the rebounds and assists were significantly behind the opponent. The team made some progress in the second game, especially in the third quarter, played defensive intensity, continued to chase points, but only 9 assists in the entire game, rebounds and lost 13 Blazers.
The King’s 55th overall rookie Guy played well in 5 games, especially in the game against the Chinese team. Guy scored 21 points and 5 assists. His organizational passing and three-pointers were excellent. In addition, Chris Dun and Gabriel also played well. The Kings averaged 93 points and 38.4 rebounds per game, and the Rockets averaged 84 points and 28.5 rebounds per game.
The Rockets have only four games in the Summer League. From the current state, there are only two games left for young players. For now, the only players in the Rockets are Hartenstein and this year’s loser. Lemmons showed potential, and Clark, Kiza, Edwards, and Duval in the Rockets lineup last season did not reflect the experience and abilities they have honed in the NBA.
Scored 42 points and 19 rebounds in the two games, showing the developmental league FMVP's dominance of the inside. What is surprising is that in the second game against the Blazers, Harteng also staged a dribbling through the inside and forced dunks. Of the scene, although one offense was blown upFoul, but it can be seen that Harden has excellent upper limb strength and will use his body to find space for himself.
For the Rockets, who have done nothing in the free agent market, ha Teng has a lot of opportunities next season, and the two games exposed a lot of shortcomings, unstable receiving, inaccurate three-pointers, poor defensive awareness, but with his current strength, as long asMore training on the NBA arena, and you will definitely have a place in the Rockets.
Apart from Harteng, only Clemmons played His own characteristics, scored 44 points and 6 steals in the two games, hit 11 three-pointers in total, and became the team's current scoring leader. His ultra-long three-pointer is the type that the Rockets like. Clay is the third-ranked scoring player in NCAA history. Mons can always find a way to score, If it feels to the touch, a series of three-pointers cannot be stopped.
The biggest shortcoming of Clemmons is the height problem, 1.75 meters He has enough explosive power and speed to break through to the inside, but he can't guarantee the hit rate in front of the opponent's tall center. On the whole, Clemmons’s technical characteristics are more suitable for the Rockets. In the last two summer league games, Clemmons should show moreAbility to be appreciated by the Rockets.
Clark was drafted in 2018 and showed defense last season. And rebounding talent, but facing a bunch of rookies with no NBA experience in the summer league, Clark did not show what people expected, but gave people the feeling that he was standing still.
Duval’s athletic ability is excellent and his projection ability is unsightly. Kiza didn’t play well, and Edwards even had a chance to play. Hard to get.
Ponzi, who has high hopes, is disappointing. In the first game, he lost 4+3+2 and missed 4 three-point shots. In the second game, he had 11 points. He shot 4 of 11 shots and only 1 of 5 three-pointers. There are not many opportunities left for Pounds to rectify his name.
Morey has not shot in the free agent market for a long time. First, the salary space is tight to ensure the flexibility of the team’s operations, and the second is Ready to pick up in the summer league. Today, the Rockets’ Summer Union lineup may no longer have players who can improve the team. Morey’s goal of picking up remains unchanged, but the target team may be transferred to a rookie who has not been signed by the team. Up.
