Winners and Losers from Week 1 of Houston Rockets' Preseason
Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

The Houston Rockets saw some good things and some bad things in Week 1 of the NBA preseason, and several players saw their stocks rise while others watched them fall.

Preseason game results don't necessarily manner, but starting off the season with a loss to the New Orleans Pelicans certainly wasn't what head coach Kevin McHale had in mind. Houston was able to bounce back in a win over the Indiana Pacers, however.

With two games already under their belts, the Rockets players will slowly begin to develop chemistry with each other. After bringing in some new faces over the offseason, general manager Daryl Morey needs to give his guys at least a few weeks to adjust.

The Rockets have a great shot at locking up a top-four seed in the Western Conference come season's end if all goes well. Now that the first steps in the journey have been taken, it's only a matter of time before we start getting into the thick of the season.
