Rockets coach Daryl Morey on shooting and defense
Houston Rockets head coach Daryl “The Mountain” Morey says he’s always looking to the future and believes the Rockets will become a more competitive team when he’s coaching in 2020.
“I just think we have to go out there and play the way we can play and not worry about the past, because you’re always trying to get better and learn from the past,” Morey said Monday.
“I think that’s something that’s been the theme throughout our whole history, and it’s something I’ll continue to do.”
The Rockets have been playing better lately than they have in the past few seasons, and they’ve beaten the New York Knicks, San Antonio Spurs and Golden State Warriors.
The Rockets have gone 5-1 against the Warriors and 3-0 against the Spurs.
Morey says the Rockets are more than capable of going to the Finals.
“This team is capable of making a run, so it’s just a matter of us getting out there with that same mentality, and hopefully we can do that,” Moreys said.
“If we’re going to get out of this year’s conference with a win, we have the talent to get to the conference finals.”
Morey was asked if he has a game plan to make the Rockets better.
“No, I don’t,” Moreyer said.
“You have to do everything you can to help the team win, and if you’re doing everything you could, you’ll be in a better position than if you just do everything at your own pace.”
Houston is 2-0 in the NBA and 4-1 at home.
