With a handful of new players, coach Kevin McHale is still looking for the right rotation for the Houston Rockets. After an impressive 3-0 start, the Rockets have dropped three of their last four and have struggled down the stretch in those games. The coaching staff needs to find that right mix to get the team headed in the right direction.
Houston essentially has an eight-man rotation, nine if you include Aaron Brooks, who played when starting point guard Patrick Beverley went down with an injury. McHale has decided to stick with a certain group of players and ignore those further down the bench.
The Rockets have been experimenting with several lineups early on in the season, including a starting lineup featuring both Dwight Howard and Omer Asik. Some lineups have done better than others so far, but the coaches are still tinkering.
Here's a look at some of those lineups and which one would be the perfect fit for Houston.
