Rockets relying on small-ball heading into tilt with Kings

The Houston Rockets were once more bullied on the backboards Thursday, yet again it mattered little in terms of the final score.

The Rockets (43-25) improved to 3-1 since the restart with their 113-97 victory over the Los Angeles Lakers, winning despite a minus-14 rebounding margin.

By fully leaning into a small-ball lineup, the Rockets knowingly sacrificed rebounding in favor of opening the floor offensively for the penetration talents of guard Russell Westbrook and their gaggle of shooters.
