Vegas Over/Under: 55.5
Fromal’s Record Projection: 60-22 The Bet: Hammer the more Don’t have any concerns about Chris Paul and James Harden’s match in the exact same backcourt.
Even though it’s an undeniable fact that only one basketball is present during any given match, the two guards are tremendous shot-creators who also thrive as spot-up firearms.
Paul scored 1.1 points per possession (PPP) in catch-and-shoot scenarios (77.3 percentile), while Harden put up 1.2 PPP (90.6 percentile). Complaining about these amounts is an impossible task, and they give head coach Mike D’Antoni the luxury of conducting with one of the two or both in combination.
However, this isn’t just about constantly having one elite flooring overall playing.
Even though the Houston Rockets parted with some significant pieces to land Paul, they managed to replace them add even more depth to their coffers. Obtaining P.J. Tucker and Luc Mbah a Moute shouldn’t be overlooked, and the same is true of the choice to re-sign Nene for the next few seasons.
These Rockets are filled with top notch talent and high-quality turning members to supplement the work of the stars. They may just possess the league’s third-highest over/under in this phase of the offseason, but they are a good option to become the NBA’s second-best team with space to spare.
