Can the Houston Rockets turn it around and start winning again?

What should the Rockets fix with their system? The Rockets are 11-13 right now and play Portland tomorrow. What should we change? I feel like where just not playing defense, and I think we need to give Micheal Carter Williams more minutes. Comment what y’all think we should change with the Rockets.
Yes it is true. I will be replacing Kevin as a starter now that I’m not injured. Kevin did a bad job of carrying this team so Steve told me to come back from injury. I said no but once he said KD won’t be starting I agreed I should return to the floor. #runasone#draymondisbetterthenkevin
Rockets lost 107-104. We shoot too many threes and make too many pointless turnovers. Eric Gordon’s game-winning attempt simply didn’t hit, but Luka Doncic’s 11 straight points in the 4th did. Now I need to talk about something that I noticed. Michael Carter-Williams is a former ROTY, but has not been in the rotation this year. I get that we’re figuring things out and blah blah blah. But this guy is SO humble. By far had the best team spirit today, and he didn’t even get to touch the court (Gary Clark was also a DNP). MCW was the only Rocket on the court when I arrived, and he was looking at film with one of the Houston staff members for what had to have been at least thirty minutes. Every time a player scored from Houston, MCW stood up. He clapped. He screamed for his team. He cheered them on when on defense. Michael Carter-Williams was standing up sometimes more than the coaches when a good play was made. He never stopped cheering his team on, knowing there was a chance he wouldn’t play. I just have so much respect for him now because he was just so humble the whole game through, and no one else on the bench put in the positive effort that he did. I won’t talk bad about my team, but I do believe we need less threes taken. Every time we drove to the rim, it was normally a good bucket. But possibly the first step to actually winning games may simply acting more like a team, and Michael Carter-Williams is the prime example of that in Houston. Respect ✊️ @mr_carter5
