The Rockets play their last game currently on the schedule for the Summer League tonight.

After tonight’s game, the Rockets will be seeded in a tournament to play for the Las Vegas Summer League Championship. Houston (1-1) will go up against Phoenix  (1-1) and their bright and young players. What is in store for tonight’s game against the Suns?

Players to Watch for

Look out for Cameron Oliver tonight as he recently signed a contract with the Rockets. It is unknown how many minutes he will get, but he can be an impact player for the squad. Also, Zhou Qi is bound to have a bounce-back performance after disappointing in his second Summer League game.

Troy Williams is another name to watch for the Rockets. He has been extremely impressive so far through two games, averaging 25 points. Will his shooting continue to be on point or will he come back to reality?

On the side of the Suns, they have one of the most exciting young players in Josh Jackson. The Kansas product will be the player to watch for Phoenix as they try to go to 2-1 in Las Vegas. So far, he is averaging 16.5 points and 8.5 rebounds per game, but not shooting very well at 34.3%. He is still fun to watch and will be an interesting matchup for the defense of the Rockets.
