Rockets' chemistry visible vs. 76ers
Chemistry has been something the Rockets have been looking to build upon. On Wednesday night against the 76ers, the improvement in that category could be felt.
"I'm liking some of the stuff that I'm seeing out there," Kevin McHale said after his Rockets won 125-103. "I'm starting to see a little more of the symmetry. The ball doesn't get as sticky as it was at times for us, offensively."
Players could feel it too.
"You could see it out there," Jeremy Lin said. "Guys are starting to click. Things are starting to click. We're starting to find different plays and sets and schemes that we like."
"We're starting to feel where everybody's going to be at," Greg Smith said. "Like, me down low, I'm always in a dunk spot. They drive and I'm going to be there, so it's easy. And look in the corner, we've got Chandler (Parsons), he's going to be there. He's always cutting, so we're starting to feel everybody's game."
"I think every day we have a chance to be together, we're getting better," Parsons added. "The team's so young. Every game, every practice is huge for us to develop that chemistry and build from that."
Everybody cautioned that there's still work to be done on the chemistry front, especially defensively, but that Wednesday was certainly a step in the right direction.
