The Philadelphia 76ers will finish up their 3-game road trip on Monday when they take on the Houston Rockets and it will be a homecoming for plenty of those on the Sixers.
James Harden is considered one of the best ever to throw on a Rockets uniform as he won an MVP with the franchise in 2018 and he averaged 29.6 points, 7.7 assists, and 6.0 rebounds in a little over eight seasons in Houston. He also won three scoring titles and guided Houston to one win away from the NBA finals in 2018.
Along with Harden, PJ Tucker was a member of those teams as well. Just like his role with the Sixers, the barrel-chested veteran did all of the little things to help the Rockets win and he was bothering opponents defensively. Tucker freed up Harden to do what he does on the offensive end.
As Tucker, Harden, and others such as Danuel House Jr. and president Daryl Morey pay a visit to Houston on Monday, they recalled their time with the Rockets with The Philadelphia Inquirer:
Tucker and Harden will look to make it a successful homecoming when they look to guide the Sixers to a win on this road trip. Philadelphia is 0-2 on the trip and they will be looking to at least get one before returning home for a 7-game homestand.
