Houston Rockets forward Chandler Parsons has stepped up to become a team leader heading into the 2013-2014 season. He busted out in the playoffs last season against the Oklahoma City Thunder. With the Rockets facing a possible sweep in game 4 of the first round series at home, Parsons lead the team to a 105-103 win as he nearly recorded a triple-double with 27 points, 10 rebounds, and 8 assists.
