The numbers were impressive: 17 points, 28 rebounds. The outcome was what Rocket fans expected: a 96-93 win in their season opener against the visiting Charlotte Bobcats.
Based on one game: the ball movement of the Houston Rockets will allow Howard more space to operate with in the low post.
But one game doesn’t make a season. The big question: can Howard do this consistently?
We’re not impressed. Yet.
And remember this: it was the Bobcats.
