“He shoots a ton,” Silas said. “All of our guys shoot a ton. (Assistant coach) John Lucas does an amazing job … with the young guys. They’re in getting shots up in the morning and after practice He works a lot. He’s a hard worker. But we also have the structure in place for those guys to do that. They know it’s a priority of ours. “For him to be successful, he’s going to have to be someone who can make those shots. To see the hard work that he puts in pay off was great.”
The current Rockets are an underdog story that’s easy to root for, and in that sense, Lucas fits right in. “John has been invaluable. His relatability with players, his experience, you can’t replace it,” Rockets head coach Stephen Silas says. “When you see young guys and new guys come on the floor ready to play, that’s John. I’m so thankful and grateful that he’s here. I rely on him immensely as a first-year coach, but even if I were here 10 years I’d need John on my staff. He’s that valuable.”
