Rockets insert Eric Gordon into the starting lineup

"We want to solidify that position," D'Antoni joked of being last in bench scoring. "It is a concern, but everybody's going to play the same minutes. It doesn't really matter. We're going to play eight guys, nine guys. They're going to play these minutes. Whether they start or not start, that's not a start that bothers me. Each individual has to play well. Maybe we need a couple guys to step up. That would be nice. Right now, we are who we are."

Eric Gordon just isn’t making shots

Despite a good game on Saturday, the veteran shooting guard’s up-and-down play has been emblematic of the team thus far.

CLEVELAND - The Rockets' confidence that their bench scoring would pick up had been largely based off the expectation that Eric Gordon would get going from the perimeter, an option unavailable to the second unit with Gordon starting on Saturday.

Hartenstein sank the shot, detonating the crowd for explosive cheers and forcing the Warriors to take a timeout. The Rockets were all smiles and high-fives when Hartenstein jogged back.
