Rockets head coach Kevin McHale talks about the slow start to the season and current winning streak, his thoughts on Samuel Dalembert and Kyle Lowry.
Kyle Lowry, the Rockets’ starting PG, discusses his break out season and reasoning behind their seven game win streak.
No one expected much from the Rockets this season, but they are one of the hottest teams in the NBA right now with a 7-game winning streak and counting.
The 6-foot-11 center has been a presence in the middle, a rebounder, shot blocker, defender and occasional scorer during the eight years of his career in Philadelphia and then last season in Sacramento.

The Houston Rockets have plenty of issues on their own. They do not have a superstar (even though on a better team Lowry might be on his way there), they are continually undersized with Dalembert still averaging less than 20 minutes per game and their scoring can come and go on any given night. Most Rockets fans know this already, but the Rockets are facing another challenge. They have played three home games so far (fewest in the West) and seven road games (most in the West) this season.
The Rockets, like many teams, do not have the star power to simply roll the ball out and win in the NBA.
Without a true star on their team, they will need a true team effort in every game to simply be a .500 team
