Talking Three-Point Philosophy and Rockets Prospects with Vipers Coach Nevada Smith

Rio Grande Valley Vipers coach Nevada SmithLast night notwithstanding, the Rockets have run the NBA’s top-ranked offense this year, but there’s one offense that may be out-Rocketing the Rockets.

Through the first five games, the 5-0 Rio Grande Valley Vipers, the NBDL affiliate for the Rockets, are averaging 133.4 points per game, shooting an unbelievable 47.2 three-pointers per game.

Vipers head coach Nevada Smith joins Dave Hardisty on the podcast to talk about their success and how his uptempo, fast-paced style fits with what appears to be an organizational philosophy that cuts out the mid-range shot and focuses on points in the paint and three-point shots.

Smith also fills us in on the development of Rocket rookies Isaiah Canaan and Robert Covington as well as sharpshooter Troy Daniels.
