HOUSTON (AP) - The young Rockets are eager to see what they can do in James Harden's second season in Houston.
The Rockets reached the playoffs for the first time since 2009 and battled back from a 3-0 deficit before being eliminated by the Oklahoma City Thunder in Game 6.
Harden was traded to the Rockets just days before the season opener, leaving him little time to mesh with his teammates before stepping in as the leader in Houston.
He says the playoffs were a great learning experience and that he's ready to use the offseason to bond with his teammates and improve.
