When the Rockets open the season on Wednesday, Carmelo Anthony will do something he never has in 1,054 NBA games: come off the bench.
Carmelo came off the bench in the final three preseason games when P.J. Tucker returned from his sore back. He has generally checked in to replace Tucker roughly four minutes into each half and that will be the plan going forward. "It's an adjustment, more so a mental adjustment than a physical adjustment," Anthony said. There should be plenty of scoring opportunities in Houston this year so Carmelo offers some late-round upside but it will be interesting to see how he handles the situation.
