The Rockets are coming off a 107-100 win over the Memphis Grizzlies on Monday. Gordon played 32 minutes and finished with 16 points, five rebounds and one assist.
Houston played without Russell Westbrook, who was resting on the second night of a back-to-back. The Rockets enter their matchup with the Warriors at 4-3.
Gordon, who signed an extension with the Rockets in the offseason, is averaging 10.3 points and 1.7 rebounds on the young season. He’s shooting terrible from the field, as Gordon is shooting just 27.8 percent from the field, 23.3 percent from beyond the arc and 66.7 percent from the free-throw line.
You have to assume Gordon’s shooting numbers will increase as the season goes along. He’s too good of a shooter to keep struggling like this.
The Warriors shocked the NBA world on Monday by defeating Damian Lillard, CJ McCollum and the Portland Trail Blazers at home. Golden State was playing without All-Stars Stephen Curry, Draymond Green and D’Angelo Russell.
The Rockets have to be careful on Wednesday so they don’t get upset like the Blazers did. Houston head coach Mike D’Antoni will update Gordon’s status accordingly.
