The Houston Rockets have looked like one of the NBA’s best teams this season after the addition of Russell Westbrook at times. He and James Harden appear to be meshing well offensively, and the team has been playing extremely well on the defensive end of the floor in spurts.
However, consistency has been an issue, and Paul Pierce still isn’t convinced that this season will turn out any different than in past years.
“We’ve seen this before,” Pierce said. “It’s like a Harry Potter story. It’s the same characters every year. (I won’t believe in them) until I consistently see it.”
