The Alperen Sengun show is going to continue for the Rockets as they face off against the Suns tonight. Houston has a clear choice to make with their young center of the future (and present).
The Houston Rockets have a tough game coming up tonight as they face off against a Suns team that is proving to be just as talented as last year.
Much like we have already seen this season, the Rockets are probably going to have their hands full, but this was to be expected. The main goal for Houston this season is developing players and their talent, and that is exactly what is happening with Alperen Sengun.
Sengun started the season with a bit more uncertainity surrounding his role, but the good news for Houston is that he has found his stride over the past few games and is putting up the numbers that everyone expected when they saw him play last season.
The Rockets' Turkish center is one of the best offensive players at his position in the league. Averaging 15.2 points per game, 10.2 boards, and adding to his defensive stats with some blocks is going to make Sengun an obvious starter for the Rockets sooner than later when everyone is healthy.
Volume is the name of the game for Sengun right now. Houston has almost no business taking him off the court when their offense generally struggles so much, so more chances should help keep this unit moving in the right direction.
Sengun is a certified beast. The Rockets need to make the right decision and keep him on the court in an effort to give their team the best chance of winning and the best chance of developing their future.
