The grind of the regular season is winding down. With the playoffs approaching, there is a lot of discussion on whether or not the Houston Rockets should rest their starters.
It’s a valid concern. After all, we got a scare last night, when Terrrence Jones hobbled on the court. Patrick Beverley and Dwight Howard are already hurt. The last thing we need is another injury to haunt us throughout the playoffs. If we take a hit to the starting lineup, any chance we have at actually going the distance will be thrown out the window.
I posed the question to our House of Houston team. Before you get to their thoughts, I’ll go ahead and give you my opinion.
The Houston Rockets should not rest their starters. This team needs to play with more consistency. Resting starters are for teams that have playoff experience and are constructed of players that have gelled through years of playing together. If anything, they need to draw up a better game plan to where we’re not relying on James Harden as much.
Let’s see what the other guys have to say about the topic.
