The Rio Grande Valley Vipers are on a winning streak this season.

13 games in a row? Yes, the Rio Grande Valley Vipers have won 13 games in a row!

With those wins, the Vipers now lead the Southwest Division.

It is quite a nice surprise considering the team started the season off with three losses.


The losses did not bring the Vipers down, rather utilized to fuel and discharge their venom on their rivals.

Currently, the Vipers rank 2nd in points per game, 1st in rebounds per game, and 2nd in assists per game.

They also have the most wins in the G-League.

Onuaku, a starter for the Vipers and a Rockets assignee is really showing improvement from last year.

As a result, he has recorded his 6th double-double of the season. In his last two games, he has scored 14 points along with 11 and 12 rebounds.

Briante Weber has been consistently great for the Vipers. It will be cool to see if/how the Rockets will use him during the post-season.


At least I hope so.

The Rio Grande Valley Vipers will face the Agua Caliente Clippers, the G- League team of the LA Clippers twice this week.  The Clippers record is 8-6, which I hope means “easy” wins for the Vipers.
