BARRAGE OF THREES

Lou Williams slays in debut as Rockets crush Cousins, Pelicans

The Houston Rockets now have a legitimate bench. After acquiring Lou Williams in a trade with the Lakers on Tuesday, the Rockets looked at their roster and expected to unleash a barrage of threes. They did that in Williams' debut as the Houston newcomer, who wasn't even expected to play, exploded for 27 points in just 25 minutes, hitting seven of the Rockets' 20 three-pointers made in the game, as the Rockets beat the New Orleans Pelicans 129-99 in DeMarcus Cousins' debut in the Big Easy. Eric Gordon still looked to be in competition with Williams for the Sixth Man of the Year, putting in 19 points off the bench. David Weiner joins Clutch on the podcast to discuss Williams' big debut and the deadline-day trades made by the Rockets.
