They Have A Bench Too

With the playoffs right around the corner, the Rockets won their 5th straight and 34th of their last 40. Y'all can keep on underestimating them, but with their starters and the depth they have on the bench, this team looks ready for the playoffs.

On a night Rockets legend Hakeem Olajuwon was honored, they rolled to one of the best wins of the season, a 101-90 victory over the Suns on Friday night at Toyota Center.

The Rockets led by as much as 18 on their way to their fifth consecutive win, the longest active streak in the NBA.

...the biggest key might have been from the bench, which scored 43 points, led by Carl Landry's 14 and 13 from Bobby Jackson.

In case you're still doubting, I've found pretty compelling evidence that the Rockets have all the pieces in place to get the job done this year, including this one. Check it out.
