Rockets Youth Squad:

Honorable Mention of the Youngsters:

K.J. McDaniels: As per above he did have a small window of three minutes where he couldn’t buy a bucket, but his leadership on both ends stabilized his young court mates in overtime scoring the first six points to give the Rockets a lead they never relinquished. Not to continue playing the same broken record, however McDaniels has given McHale serious reason to give him consistent minutes this season.

Strong start in OT for McDaniels, & Livingston. Rockets up 130-123, 1:30 remains.

Joshua Smith was great…. when he could remain on the court. His good was 8 points on 4 of 5 field goals, 7 rebounds and a block yet the bad was only being able to remain on the court ten minutes prior to collecting his sixth personal foul.

Denzel Livingston: Again he was instant offense scoring 12 points along with 2 steals in a mere 9 minutes of playing time. It’s unlikely the Rockets will keep the native Texan on their squad, but he’s done more offensively than rookie Sam Dekker to warrant the consideration.
