Winners and Losers from Week 2 of Houston Rockets Preseason
Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

The Houston Rockets have gotten off to a nice 3-1 start this preseason, and several strong performances from key players have led the charge. There have been some poor performances along the way, though, and head coach Kevin McHale will have to straighten out his inconsistent players before the regular season gets under way.

Houston started Week 2 with a 107-98 win over the Indiana Pacers in Taipei. The game was never a tight one, but Indiana did make a significant push in the third quarter. Houston's ability to close out games during the regular season will be a key to their success.

Just a few days later, Houston barely inched by the Orlando Magic by a score of 108-104. James Harden was his usual self in 18 minutes of play, scoring 21 points and pulling down five boards.

There were other great performers outside of Harden, and it will be the role players who make the difference in Houston this season. Harden can't do it on his own.
