The Houston Rockets traveled to Memphis to take on the Grizzlies Friday night, and they fell to the Grizzlies, 93-85, for their first home loss of the season, as well as their third consecutive loss overall after their surprising 2-0 start.
It was a frustrating loss for the Rockets mostly because all three losses have had the same formula, double Harden and/or Lin on the pick-and-roll and let James Harden and Jeremy Lin beat you by passing the ball.
The Rockets just don't have enough weapons right now.
They did get some help until the final stretch when virtually all the shots were taken by the backcourt tandem, and that was the difference in the game. They just didn't have enough down the stretch to secure the win.
