Youthful Thunder hope to build on effort vs. rebuilding Rockets
The Houston Rockets had reason to expect growing pains in the early stages of this season given their reliance on talented yet relatively inexperienced players to orchestrate their rebuild.
The first step was a doozy. The Rockets trailed by as many as 35 points in their 124-106 road loss to the Minnesota Timberwolves on Wednesday. The young backcourt tandem of Kevin Porter Jr. and rookie Jalen Green shot a combined 8 for 26 while totaling 20 points. Porter had nine of the Rockets' 24 turnovers while Green posted a plus/minus of minus-37 in 32 minutes.
The Rockets are anticipating better days ahead, perhaps as early as Friday when they host the Oklahoma City Thunder in their home opener at Toyota Center.MORE
