Snack from the The Rockets lost between 108 and 94 against the Golden State Warriors on Wednesday night in a Toyota Center: Stephen Silas said again that the Rockets – losers in a franchise record of 18 games in a row – will be a good team.

He meant it, but to make it happen, he has to Get his players to believe it, so the idea that he can and must bring it to life has some validity.

However, the Rockets’ last defeat had slightly more players playing than those who did were outside. So that was progress. Christian Wood and Danuel House Jr. were two of those players, which was encouraging signs.

The missiles were still a typical 26 points behind. They hit a season low of 17 points in the second quarter when they were exceeded by 20 points. They lost double digits for the eleventh time in a row.

But Wood and House chopped off the rust and done things that missiles missed so much. It didn’t take much to look around and believe that with Wood in the middle and John Wall and Victor Oladipo’s starting place, the Rockets could potentially win a game on Friday that they haven’t done in six weeks. </ "To have Christian out there and Danuel House out there and hopefully have Vic and hopefully John, we're going to be as close as possible to it all," said Silas. "It'll be fine."

The missiles were anything but good in the first half. They recovered a little in the second half. They did this many times during the losing streak, with opponents believing they had a pretty good chance of winning if the leads hit 26. The Rockets are at least 23 points behind in six consecutive games. You should know the way back.

Still, you could see these good stretches as proof that something better is coming. You don’t have much choice.

« Again it’s like a broken record; play badly in the first half, play better in the second half, » said Silas. « But if we have a starting line-up of John Wall, Victor Oladipo, Danuel House, Jae’Sean Tate and Christian Wood made me feel pretty good about it. After Kevin Porter Jr. fell off the bench, Sterling Brown came off the bench and K.J. Martin is coming off the bench, that’s not bad.

« There’s reason to be optimistic on this team. Once we get everyone back we’ll be pretty good. »

1. Christian Wood was back, wearing unusually highs High tops that he probably would never have considered six weeks ago if he weren’t going to become a tall, skinny wrestler.

He had a nifty move with a crossover dribble past Kelly Oubre Jr. to a left-handed man -Finish past Draymond Green. He had a Dirk Nowitzki fadeaway sweater. By the fourth quarter, he even dropped Green with a smooth crossover dribble and nailed a sweater over him from 22 feet.

When he finished in 26 minutes, Wood had 21 points on the 8-of-12 -Shot with nine ricochets.

It was nowhere near enough to end the losing streak that began with the first game that Wood missed with his sprained right ankle. But it was a start. « I thought he looked good, » said Rockets trainer Stephen Silas. « He obviously didn’t have a rhythm in the first half. Got his rhythm in the second half. With the minute limit it was difficult for him to find his rhythm. He played better towards the end. He’s a difference maker. Obviously he can score, bounce off and block shots and really change who we are. « 

 » I felt good, « said Wood. » It was a little difficult for me to get into rhythm with the minute limit.

« Unfortunately we didn’t win. I have a feel for the guys I haven’t played with. It was my first time playing with KPJ (Kevin Porter Jr.). Hopefully John (Wall) and the boys are better. We will get better. « 

Wood said he felt no pain. He didn’t think about it when he was hit in the right leg in a shot in the first few minutes. He will have at least one more limited game. But he was back, Old school high-tops and everything.

« I felt good playing in high-tops, » said Wood with a smile. « I’ll move on. If I play well in the high tops, I can leave them. But it felt good. « 

2. Dealing with PJ Tucker was a certainty long before he hopped a plane out of Sacramento while the rockets were heading for Salt Lake City.

The rockets were sinking quickly. The remaining time on Tucker’s contract was expiring. As much as they were a perfect fit for much of Tucker’s time in Houston, that time was over.

Tucker can still help competitors. His toughness and defense can help any team that is in Playing high-stakes games where a few games, some of those out-of-the-box moments can mean the difference between huge wins and losses.

But competitors don’t become competitors because they have blatant weaknesses or big ones Have portions of unclaimed minutes.

Tucker should have squeezed into most of the rotations and will probably do it with the dollars. So the Rockets and Bucks got creative and they both got what they wanted.

D he Rockets returned Milwaukee’s selection for the first round of 2022 to the Bucks to be pushed back a year so the Bucks could send the selection to the Rockets for the first round of that season. The missiles will send their selections to the bucks for the second round to receive them. The Rockets will also get the first round of the Bucks in 2023 no matter where they fall.

That doesn’t get the Rockets far up in this draft, from their second round choice to the first bucks choice. But it should move them up enough to change the group of players they’ll be considering.

It is common knowledge that early second-round picks are worth as much as late first-round picks. However, it may be worth improving the chances of scoring a goal at these stages of the draft.

The Bucks’ first pick this season would be the Draft’s 25th pick, the place the Rockets occupied Clint Capela , and one place earlier than Aaron Brooks with Daryl Morey’s first pick as general manager. The Rockets’ pick in the second round would be 33 ..

There are many players in the league who have made it out of the early second round of the draft more than ever. The Rockets are pretty lucky to have Kevin Porter Jr., who was the final round one pick, K.J. Martin, who was the 52nd selection, and Jae’Sean Tate, who was not selected at all.

However, the design is still about making educated guesses. There are no certain things. If the move improves your chances, it’s a good move.

A lot of the rationale behind « The Process » was to make so many draft picks that there was a good chance some would pay off. The Sixers missed some of those picks, but they’ve made enough to pursue a championship this season.

The Rockets have three picks for the first round this season. the blazers, bucks, and either their own if they finish in the top four, or the worst of them, Oklahoma City and Miami. Anything they can do to make the right decisions has to be done.

It doesn’t hurt, either, to push the other Bucks draft pick back a year to 2023, if only to improve the chances of that the bucks aren’t as good as they are now or probably in 2022.

It can happen. The warriors fell from the finals to the second choice of the draft. The Rockets have fallen from the longest running streak in the playoff seasons to the bottom of the league.

It cost the Rockets a player who stopped playing. It might take up some space if D.J. Augustine, who is due for $ 7 million between 2021 and 22, is on the roster next season. But other steps are also being taken. Of the seven season trades made this season (six if the Bucks become a deal on Wednesday), the Rockets were in three. How the situation changes with regard to the roster and cap has yet to be determined.

While Rafael Stone is working on the phones, he will study the NCAA tournament for the time being. He has more players to evaluate and consider than ever before.

3. Stephen Silas seemed to get into the game considering how many times he hit the floor in the first quarter. It might not have been a bad idea, even though the NBA isn’t overflowing with 47-year-old former Ivy Leaguers.

He didn’t check in, however. He had felt the need to call timeout after timeout. For some reason, he figured he wouldn’t need her to stop the clock for the last few minutes.

Silas wanted a word with his team because they were slowly coming back on the defensive.

There are there is nothing new. They are often burned in quick pauses. Only the 76s allow more fast break points per game.

But more than just trying to fix a weakness in hopes that could help the Rockets win a game, his insistence on the problem will be No matter how many times he had to repeat his message, they make up a large part of the job description for the season.

Silas has to spend his time teaching. He plays so many players who have to be shown the way to the field in street arenas that he has to hammer details home night after night so that one day his young players learn to play like veterinarians.

There are many Areas to repair, so many that he may have to choose which to hit and which to save. Running fast seemed like a good start.

« I have almost no time outs because of these games, » said Silas. “They are totally unacceptable, especially after the free throw we had. They went down and put the ball in.

« As I keep saying, returning to transition has nothing to do with talent, regardless of who we have on the floor, regardless of talent or anything. All it is is wanting back, bothering to come back, come back and sit down and knowing when the shot comes, you have to get back into the transition. “

There is no reason why the missiles are so bad on transitional defense. Even the idea that playing so fewer players wore them down doesn’t fully explain it, as the Rockets come back significantly worse in the first quarter than they did in the fourth.

They don’t get on the offensive boards very often, finishing in 26th Place in the offensive rebound percentage. You might as well run the other way.

If you fix that, you can move on to the next line on the Silas checklist. He was hired to coach a team that by the time was built around James Harden, Russell Westbrook, Eric Gordon, Robert Covington, and P. J. Tucker. The team is gone. Only Gordon, who has been on the road for weeks, remains.

Some of his veterans will be returning soon, but he has a team full of young students. Classes are in session, as the Rapid Fire Timeouts have shown.

Jonathan Feigen has been the Rockets beatwriter since 1998 and a basketball fan since Willis Reed. He became a sports writer because the reporter who was supposed to cover the University of Delaware basketball team decided to play another season of college lacrosse instead and never looked back.

Feigen, who has won APSE, APME, and United States Basketball Writers Association awards from El Campo to Houston, came to Texas in 1981 to cover the Rice Birds. He was a sports editor in Garland before moving to Dallas to cover all of the US’s last hurray, Southwest Conference to SMU after the death penalty.

After joining the Houston Chronicle in 1990, Feigen reported on the downfall of the SWC, the rise of the Big 12 and the Rockets in their best championship.
