The Houston Rockets lost to the Phoenix Suns on Sunday to run their losing streak to 11 straight games. The defeat also dropped Houston to an NBA-worst 1-12 on the season.
Following the latest loss, Rockets big man Christian Wood challenged his team to bring their off-court chemistry into games.
"Everybody likes each other, everybody loves each other, actually. We're all close off the court, everybody goes to each other's houses and stuff like that and we just gotta show the same chemistry on the court."
Wood is embracing his role as a leader for the young Rockets. He's challenging his teammates to make sure they stay together despite the struggles.
"As one of the leaders, I tell these young guys that we have to stay together. Last year we lost 20 games in a row, but everybody stayed together through that 20 game stretch and that's what it's going to have to be this year," said Wood. "Everybody's together, everybody is, including me."
