Philadelphia, PA — The Houston Rockets have not looked like themselves since losing Trevor Ariza and Patrick Beverly in the offseason. Beverly was a pillar for the defensive success when he was with the Rockets. His solid rugged defense, managed to  pressure and frustrates many opponents. Trevor Ariza was a solid contributor on offense providing 11-point per game.

He had the ability to provide a strong defensive presence on the wing when guarding elite players. Ariza has averaged 1.5 steals during his career thus far. The Rockets then added Carmelo Anthony; a player that has been one of the biggest names in the NBA.

The Rockets attempted to create a big 3 of Carmelo Anthony, Chris Paul, and James Harden. However the formula left Carmelo unable to find a suitable role on the team. Most recently Anthony was released from the Rockets, leaving the team trailing in the West. The Rockets numbers this season has been dreadful to say the least.

Currently the Houston Rockets are giving up 15 points per game in second chance points compared to 11 points last season, and they’re giving up 51 rebounds per game compared to 48 last season.

They’ve lost 6 of their last 8 games, including a 27-point thumping to the Utah Jazz, in a nationally televised game on TNT. In the Rockets 6 losses the Rockets are losing by an average 33 points per game. Based on the numbers, and based on the Rockets ridding the team of two of it’s best defenders and scorers, there shouldn’t be a surprise that the Rockets have struggled.

Most NBA spectators expect the Rockets to perform as they did last season, but a lot has changed. As if the Rockets recent struggles haven’t been enough for Rocket fans, 4 of the Rockets next 5 games are against teams that are currently in playoff contention: The Mavs, Lakers, Grizzlies, Jazz, and Blazers.

The Rockets are not able to replicate the success of last season.. At this point what can Houston do to turn around the situation??

Last Saturday we saw two gladiators go at it in the heavyweight division. Current WBC Heavyweight Titleholder Deontay Wilder faced off against Lineal Champion Tyson Fury.

From the opening bell, we saw a one-sided fight for the most part. Fury was having his way landing an assortment of jabs and flurries on the “Bronze Bomber“. For the most part, Wilder’s skillset has been questioned in the ranks of facing true competition.

In his previous fight against top contender Luis Ortiz, Wilder was desperate to score a TKO. Through several moments of being stunned Wilder came out on top showing he can take a punch.

With Wilder’s desire to fight heavyweight king Anthony Joshua, Fury stands in the way of the dream fight everyone is waiting for. Saturday night lived up to the hype with Wilder scoring two knockdown late in the fight against Tyson Fury.

In the end, Fury’s tactical boxing skills wasn’t enough to afford the win. Ultimately, the fight was ruled a split decision. Because of the controversial ending, the WBC governing body has ordered an immediate rematch.
