Lionel Hollins Addition Displays Houston Rockets Defensive Commitment

HOUSTON — Coach Stephen Silas was all smiles during the Houston Rockets’ introductory press conference to welcome the draft class of 2022. Each player selected during the 2022 NBA Draft can enhance the Rockets’ defensive struggles next season.

Silas has been adamant about improving Houston’s defense. And following the selections of Jabari Smith Jr., Tari Eason and TyTy Washington Jr., Silas wasted no time orchestrating a new defensive game plan.

But like every coach in professional sports, Silas will rely upon his staff to assist in Houston’s defensive production. Unlike the previous two seasons, Silas has one of the best defensive-minded coaches on his staff in the acquisition of Lionel Hollins.
