The Houston Rockets lost another game last night and are now on a four-game losing streak. It appears they have lost the game against the New Orleans Pelicans due to Lonzo Ball’s outstanding comeback performance.

Houston Rockets have had a pretty tough season so far. Stephen Silas appeared in an interview to explain their recent defeat. He thinks the team was distracted for multiple reasons last night, which reaped a shattering defeat.

Instead of focusing on the defense, the Rockets were worried about other stuff, which steered towards distractions. “Instead of buckling down and coming together on the defensive end, we are worried about other stuff, whether it’s distractions,” Silas claimed in a post-game interview. 

Furthermore, after a seven-game break, Lonzo Ball returned to the court and looked like he never missed a chance to score against Houston Rockets. Ball’s 27-point, nine assists, and three steals led to the victory for the Pelicans.

Seemingly Rockets lost the game in the fourth quarter due to the poor synchronization among the team members. “when you’re trying to win a game in the fourth quarter, it’s got to be everybody on the same page, everybody pulling in the same direction,” Stephen Silas explained. 

With the defeat, the Rockets stayed at the 14th position in the point table. On the other hand, the win put the Pelicans in the 11th position, which will surely keep them ahead for the payoffs.
