Gary Clark has been a pleasant surprise for the Rockets

Gary Clark has been a pleasant surprise for the Rockets

After breaking into the rotation six games ago, Gary Clark has made the most of his opportunity. While Gary Clark isn’t the immediate solution to any of the Rockets’ current problems on the wing, he’s been much more than just a placeholder so far this season. The rookie currently holds the second-highest rebound rate on the team, a higher block rate than Clint Capela, and a similar Player Efficiency Rating (PER) as the departed Trevor Ariza. And it’s no accident. Going into Thursday night’s shellacking at the hands of the Oklahoma City Thunder, Clark had been averaging nearly 17...

Rockets continue to rotate backup centers

CHICAGO - With Marquese Chriss back from his preseason ankle sprain, Rockets coach Mike D'Antoni has played both Chriss and rookie Isaiah Hartenstein as backups to Clint Capela.
