Rockets’ Eric Gordon reaches historical infamy with consecutive misses vs. Jazz

Eric Gordon, Rockets

Eric Gordon and the Houston Rockets went into Wednesday night’s game against the Utah Jazz hoping to get their season back on track after a slow start. Instead, the Jazz were able to knock the Rockets off by a final score of 100-89.

It was not the performance that the Rockets wanted to have, especially for shooting guard Eric Gordon. Gordon, usually a knockdown shooter, who shot 5-for-21 from the field overall and only connected on one of his 12 attempts from behind the 3-point arc. He also went down in historical infamy with the amount of consecutive 3-point misses that he had in the game.

Gordon is now the fourth player in NBA history to miss 11-straight shots from 3-point range. The other three players are Trey Burke, Stephen Curry, and Antoine Walker.

Needless to say, this is a game that the Rockets and Gordon are going to want to forget. Every shooter goes through a slump, but Houston will be confident that Gordon will get back on track.

Even more concerning for the Rockets, James Harden went down with a hamstring injury. It is labeled as “hamstring tightness” and he will be re-evaluated on Thursday.

Following the loss, the Rockets have fallen to 1-3 on the young season.

Mike D’Antoni’s team has not looked nearly as lethal on the offensive side of the basketball as they did last season. That being said, they have the talent and ability to get back on track and become one of the best teams in the Western Conference.
