The Houston Rockets Bench

C+. Jeff Green continues to prove he wants to stay in Houston, with his consistent play. Scoring 14 points, grabbing three rebounds and an assist in the 30 minutes he was given is alright. Green continues to provide a solid defensive effort and took care of the ball against the Pacers by only forcing a single turnover. The solid but not game-changing outing by Green gives him a C+ grade.. Forward. Houston Rockets. JEFF GREEN

C -. Austin Rivers received a healthy amount of minutes against the Pacers at about 31. Only able to score three points and three assists was rather uninspiring. Rivers did provide nine rebounds for Houston along with two steals in a solid defensive outing. Only shooting 1-5 from 3-point range and forcing three turnovers is not desirable, contributing to him earning a C- grade.. Guard. Houston Rockets. AUSTIN RIVERS

C. DeMarre Carroll was on the court for about 13 minutes and provided three points, three rebounds, and three assists. Carroll continues to make the most of the time he is given and also logged a steal in the small amount of time. Carroll did go 0-2 from 3-point range, which was a theme for the night against Indiana for Houston, but contributes to a C grade.. Forward. Houston Rockets. DEMARRE CARROLL

Michael Frazier saw the court for a little over 12 minutes, but only logged two points. Frazier attempted two 3-pointers and missed both of them, and only cashed in on 1-3 from the field. An average performance with the time given earns Frazier the C grade.. Guard. Houston Rockets. MICHAEL FRAZIER. C

Lou Williams shows double-standard against Harden. Next

After an awful shooting night, where James Harden seemed to be the only Houston Rocket that shot efficiently, they will need to reload with one more seeding game left before the playoffs. Bringing a healthy lineup seems to be the priority for Space City heading down the final stretch.
