Executives on vacation, Jalen Green and Kevin Porter Jr. have fun

Since winning two games in a row in Portland, the Rockets have decided to finish the season in freewheel. Christian Wood, Eric Gordon and Dennis Schröder are no longer playing and the chance is fully given to young people, like Usman Garuba, Alperen Sengun or Josh Christopher.

In addition, the ball is now in the hands of Jalen Green and Kevin Porter Jr. The proof: the two players weigh 59 points on average over the last two meetings, or 50% of Houston’s points!

The rookie gave himself the green light to shoot, with 24 and 25 attempts against San Antonio and Sacramento. His two season records in this area.

“It’s a decision I made because I know a lot of my teammates aren’t there.”justifies Jalen Green, 31 points on average over these two meetings, for the Houston Chronicle. “We need to score and everyone has raised their level for that. »

The back of Houston even turned to 41% success at 3-pts, with a 12/29 behind the arc. Kevin Porter Jr. seems enthralled by his teammate’s performance.

” It’s awesome. He is so talented, so young. I’m young too, but he’s a baby. My little brother. It’s great to see him succeed, because it’s not easy to do that in the league. Every game he gets better and I want him to keep growing. It’s hard to believe he’s a rookie, he’s so good. »

Important for them to shine together

The former Cleveland player is also taking advantage of the favorable conditions at the end of the season to boost his numbers. He had a triple-double against the Kings, and is averaging 28 points, 10.5 rebounds and 9.5 assists in two games.

“They each took good shots and scored a lot of points,” notes Stephen Silas. “Most of the 3-pts they take are good. They also create for their teammates. Facing the Kings, as they changed in defense, they rotated. Then there was more catch-and-shoot. A number of Green’s shots are the result of the work of Porter Jr. It’s important for these players to play well, but also to play well together. »

This duo must be the launching pad for Houston’s attack in the years to come. Both players must gain in efficiency and accuracy. These last regular season matches are perfect for their confidence and their shared experience.

“Our chemistry has always been good,” believes Kevin Porter Jr. “We just need to have a chance to play. The coach always says it: play hard, on both sides of the pitch. We want that: to go on the field, to have fun and to feed on the energy of others. »
