Rockets’ November offensive efficiency better than any month by modern-era Warriors
The Houston Rockets had themselves quite a November to remember. They went an impressive 12-1 during the month to consolidate the best record in the Western Conference at 17-4.
They did so in absolutely dominant fashion, with their offensive efficiency and point differential better than any single month during the Golden State Warriors’ current three-plus-year run of excellence.
Also from @ESPNStatsInfo: Rockets offensive efficiency (117.6 points per 100 possessions) and point differential (+16.4 per game) in November are better than any month by the modern Warriors.

It should come as no surprise to see that the Rockets have been absolutely unstoppable offensively. The combination of James Harden and Mike D’Antoni produced one of the greatest offenses in NBA history last season, and it’s doing so again.
However, they’ve been able to get many more blowouts this year due to their improvement defensively. From 18th last season, they’ve gone up to seventh with the additions of elite defenders in Chris Paul, Luc Mbah a Moute, and P.J. Tucker during the offseason.
Paul’s impact on both ends of the floor has been felt immediately since he returned from an early-season knee injury. The Rockets have had the best offensive and defensive efficiency in the league in the six games he’s played since his return.
As Paul and the rest of the Rockets continue to find a groove playing with one another, it’s not inconceivable to think that they can still improve even further from their already dominant performance in November.
