With Sunday night’s home game versus the Milwaukee Bucks, the young Houston Rockets begin a season-long homestand of seven consecutive games within their friendly Toyota Center confines.

Entering this stretch, second-year guard Jalen Green and the Rockets (7-18) are a respectable 4-5 at home and a woeful 3-13 on the road, punctuated by Thursday’s awful showing at San Antonio.

With that in mind, Sunday’s episode of The Lager Line (sponsored by Clutch City Lager of Karbach Brewing) explores reasons for that home-road discrepancy and much more. Topics include:

  • The potential role of Jalen Green’s staggering home-road shooting splits;

  • Whether Kevin Porter Jr.’s inconsistent point guard play, and the lack of a proven backup, is a key factor;

  • Recent improvements by rookie forward Jabari Smith Jr.;

  • Ongoing evaluations of general manager Rafael Stone and head coach Stephen Silas;

  • Playing time decisions for young guards Josh Christopher and TyTy Washington, and whether the NBA G League is an appropriate destination for both players.

Sunday’s full podcast can be listened to below. Each episode of the show is also available via flagship radio station SportsTalk 790, as well as to all major podcast distributors under “The Lager Line.”
