NBA Regular season 2021: Nuggets vs Rockets review
The Nuggets are coming from a two-game loss, both handed to them by the Grizzlies. The team’s load is particularly carried by the former MVP Nikola Jokic. This might be a concern if Jamal Murry’s recovery takes a bit more time. The team needs to distribute the defensive responsibilities to Aaron Gordon and others. Michael Porter Jr.’s performance is not up to expectation. The bench provides sufficient depth but Campazzo’s numbers have dropped compared to his performance in the playoffs the season.
Rockets are competing to become the worst team in the league and they might just be. They have won only one game out of their eight games. The team lacks s true scorer, veteran experience and John Wall’s injury just does not help. Rookie, Jalen Green has shown some signs of excellence but overall his numbers are decent.
