  • Jenny Dial Creech (Houston Chronicle) spoke with Omri Casspi about his opportunity in Houston.

Omri Casspi has done a lot of good in a short time with the Rockets. But he isn’t satisfied and probably never will be. The small forward spends a lot of time looking at everything he has done wrong and working on the things he can correct.

Houston Texans

If you want a clear delineation between wins and losses for the Houston Texans, you can find it in red-zone efficiency.

In the Texans’ first two games, their only two wins this season, their offense entered the red zone seven times and scored touchdowns every single time. Since then the Texans have scored touchdowns on only 2 of 12 red-zone trips.
