The Houston Rockets defense was centered around their ability to switch on pick and rolls because they had great wing defenders that could defend all positions. Anddd now they have Carmelo Anthony. If a ballhandler gets Melo switched onto them, it’s dinnertime.
The Rockets now have a net rating of -9.0 with Melo on the court and +1.8 with him on the bench.
Their defensive rating is 11 points worse per 100 possessions with him on the floor, worst of any player to play over 100 minutes this season.
