Rockets’ Mike D’Antoni teases ‘new offensive set’ Daryl Morey hinted at
Houston Rockets head coach Mike D’Antoni has provided a more in-depth look at what team general manager Daryl Morey earlier described as D’Antoni’s “new offensive set” for the Rockets.
According to the 69-year-old head coach, he did not really introduce anything revolutionary, but that it was more of a fine-tuning process:
“Most of the emphasis was tuning up what we had, doing it better, not putting too much in, D’Antoni said, via Rockets insider Alykhan Bijani. “We did add a couple of wrinkles, maybe down towards the end of the game or whatever..Just add a little bit of spice to their life. Nothing major.”
So much for getting a better idea of what the Rockets have in store for us once the season restarts. D’Antoni’s extremely vague statement here does almost nothing to get us closer to what should be a very interesting new offensive tactic for Houston.
D’Antoni has long been a trail blazer, and he is not exactly the type who always adheres to the norm. That being the case, it would not be a complete shock if the Rockets all of a sudden come up with a new type of offense we’ve never seen in the past.
Houston entered the hiatus with a 40-24 record, which places them on the sixth spot in a ruthless Western Conference. It is worth noting, however, that they are just two and a half games behind the third-seeded Denver Nuggets. Needless to say, the remaining eight regular season games they are scheduled to play inside the Disney World bubble will be very important in terms of playoff positioning out West.
