Video: James Harden, Chris Paul played together and dominated in a pickup game
The new backcourt duo of the Houston Rockets has already started playing together.
Less than a month after the Rockets pulled off one of the biggest trades this summer, a video surfaced on social media where Chris Paul and James Harden can be seen playing in a pickup game along with other NBA players. From impressive dimes to efficient outside shooting, the two star guards showed off their wares and appeared to be in very good shape.
This should definitely get the Houston faithful excited, as two of the best guards in the league will be wearing their colors, and could mean more success for them next season. Although a number of teams also improved their rosters, the Rockets are being considered one of the favorites to contend for the title.
If they can show that the can co-exist on the floor and also get their teammates involved in the next campaign, the Rockets will be a very difficult team to beat. Their experience and competitiveness are also expected to rub off to the rest of their team, increasing their chances of winning even more.
