[Guide] In the opening game of the 2013-14 season, the Rockets’ starting lineup continued to offer a combination of two towers.
As expected, Howard scored 27 rebounds.
On October 31, , the Rockets played against the Bobcats at home, and finally won the first game 96-83, making a good start for the beginning of the new season.
Dwight Howard played for the Rockets for the first time in the regular season. In the end, Howard grabbed 26 rebounds, tying his career record.
The previous record was created in the game between the Magic and the 76ers in 2006.
At the same time, he made 8 of 14 shots and 1 of 4 free throws, scoring 17 points.
The Rockets almost still used the preseason lineup in the first game, resorting to the twin-tower combination, but the guard was replaced by Beverly in the starting lineup.
When Ziasik returned from injury, Rockets coach Mike Hale started the combination of the two towers. Although the offense of the two towers was not effective in the test, the defense reached the ideal expectation, so McHale continued the magic-A combination in the first game.
In this game, the defensive effect is still obvious. Howard has shown the strength of the five-time rebounding champion from the beginning.
He scored 7 rebounds in the first quarter, and at the end of the half, the number of rebounds increased to 17.
Asik was also not to be outdone, and also scored 10 rebounds in the half. The total number of halftime rebounds for the Rockets Twin Towers reached 27. At this time, the opponent Bobcats only had 20 rebounds.
At the end of the game, Howard’s rebounds were determined to be 27. Although he did not break the Rockets’ rebound record of 33, he tied his own rebound record.
Compared with defense, Howard’s offense is a bit slow.
At the end of the half, he scored 2 of 6 and only scored 5 points.
At the end of the day, Howard’s touch gradually strengthened, scoring 8 points in a single quarter.
In the end, the audience scored 17 points.
Warcraft’s first rocket appearance, although the result achieved the expected effect, there are still many details that need to be paid attention to.
How to make Howard’s attack more perfect has become a question that the Rockets coach needs to think about recently.
