#Rockets Film Room: HORNS with Alperen Sengun and Jalen Green as the middle ball-screeners.
This small HORNS alignment has created a ton of simple offense and good looks for Houston, and I am eager to see it more. This is an example of an action leading to easy reads. pic.twitter.com/rdkCEZ3o3p1:58 PM

Alykhan Bijani @Rockets_Insider

Multiple possessions late in the 4th where you get Jalen Green going to his right, and the #Rockets get 0 points out of those possessions.
With that, and how the Lakers are mostly scoring in transition, why not let Sengun operate in the post and create? Helps you on both ends. – 12:59 AM

Sam Quinn @SamQuinnCBS

The whole basketball world should be rooting for Kevin Porter Jr. to play for a different team next year. Let Green and Sengun cook, everyone else needs to be doing role player stuff. – 12:44 AM

Salman Ali @SalmanAliNBA

I mean Jalen Green, Kevin Porter, and Jae’Sean Tate were all out yesterday and Alperen Sengun still played less than 30 minutes.
That kind of tells the whole story. – 12:26 AM

Mike Trudell @LakersReporter

In a game LeBron has again been dominant offensively (28 points on 17 shots) and is +13, LAL’s lead is down to 4 heading into the 4th, after a late 3rd Q run from Houston sparked by Jalen Green’s 3 triples. – 12:26 AM

Kelly Iko @KellyIko

Rockets still fighting. Wonder what the discourse on here will be if Jalen Green has a big 2nd half, Sengun has a huge game but they lost steam in the 4th and lose 👀 – 12:26 AM

Kelly Iko @KellyIko

A possession that had at least 5 passes ended in a triple. Jalen Green comes down and hits two consecutive baskets. Signs of life. – 12:23 AM

Kelly Iko @KellyIko

Jalen Green is catching fire. Signs of life for Houston… – 12:23 AM

Jonathan Feigen @Jonathan_Feigen

While on the subject of career/season highs, Eric Gordon’s seven assists are a season high. Jabari Smith Jr.’s three assists (not too many but a few nice ones) match his career high. But with no Kevin Porter Jr., Rockets cannot have Jalen Green go 2 of 12. – 12:18 AM

Jonathan Feigen @Jonathan_Feigen

With Sengun up to 30, most for any Rockets player in a game this season is 36, Kevin Porter Jr. at Chicago in the Rockets most recent win, Dec. 26 – 12:08 AM

Jonathan Feigen @Jonathan_Feigen

Lakers 73, Rockets 61 at half. Sengun with 20, his most ever in a half, along with nine rebounds, three blocked shots, three assists. LeBron James with 18. Jalen Green struggling big time in his return from the one-game suspension. he is 2 of 10, 0 for 4 on 3s. – 11:45 PM

Adam Spolane @AdamSpolane

25 points on 9-of-15 shooting for Jalen Green in the first half on Friday night, 8 points on 3-of-16 shooting in his four quarters since – 11:45 PM

Jonathan Feigen @Jonathan_Feigen

Rockets hopeful, Stephen Silas said, that Kevin Porter Jr. will be ready to play Wednesday against the Hornets. He’ll miss his third game (and all but the first 10 minutes of the previous game) with a bruised left foot. – 9:43 PM

Adam Spolane @AdamSpolane

Rockets have ruled out Kevin Porter Jr from tonight’s game against the Lakers with the foot contusion he suffered in Sacramento on Wednesday – 4:48 PM

Ohm Youngmisuk @Notorious OHM

During a timeout, this couple lost during a name as many cartoons as possible game against John Wall. But he won at the proposed game right after that. pic.twitter.com/HyxwTshr0A4:38 PM

Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU

Rockets taking it right to the Clippers today. 34 points in the paint already, 53-46 leads with 3:51 left in 1st half.
Just much more efficient basketball offensively without Jalen Green and Kevin Porter Jr.
LA isn’t good enough offensively to be a total sieve inside like this. – 4:01 PM

Ohm Youngmisuk @Notorious OHM

Paul George may be nearing a return but John Wall is now out at least 2 weeks with an abdominal injury espn.com/nba/story/_/id…3:21 PM

Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU

📰 @TheAthletic
Friday the 13th, man.
John Wall believes that his abdominal injury happened on this dunk. Now he’s out for two weeks, further thinning a Clippers rotation already going through changes ahead of trade deadline evaluation time.

After playing in Houston at the end of the James Harden era in 2018-19 and 2019-20, Rivers is now in Minnesota, helping shepherd dynamic guard Anthony Edwards toward what the Timberwolves hope is a string of All-Star appearances across the next decade . Rivers highlighted the lack of such a veteran presence in Houston postgame on Sunday, noting its adverse impact on the Rockets’ own young guards, Kevin Porter Jr. and Jalen Green. “Someone needs to teach KPJ and Jalen how to play the right way, you know what I mean? They need those vets,” Rivers told Chron.com following Minnesota’s 104-96 victory. “I like those guys, they’re super talented, they can really score. … They need someone to help them take that next step.” -Street Houston Chronicle /January 9, 2023
