Three wins in a row. First time at .500 in over two years. I SEE THE LIGHT!

Your Houston Rockets have blown out the De’Aaron Fox-less Sacramento Kings in back-to-back home games. Let’s get after it. Game 6 of 82 what we learned: Houston Rockets edition.

Consistency is the story of this game, and for most of this win streak. The Houston Rockets are one out of only three teams with a starting five that is each averaging more than 14 points. This either means a recipe for success, (i.e. the Boston Celtics) or you just have zero weapons and are throwing a whoever-five out on the floor because somebody needs 30 minutes a game. (I’m looking at you, Charlotte)

What really reeled me in to start off the night was Alperen Sengun dropping 7 (seven, yes) assists in one quarter, already matching his season high in less than 12 minutes.

I’m about to say something greedy, and if you do not agree with me, I understand. Bring back the mid-late 2010’s triple double movement. Throw Sengun in the fire while the squad is up by 35 and let him get that elusive 10 rebounds for the vibes. This is purely out of nostalgia, (as seeing the 60 point Harden triple double in person completely changed my view of basketball as I knew it) but seriously, that shit was always so cool to me.

Abnormally large numbers in sporting events make my head go brrrrrr.

In regards to the rest of the squad, Jalen Green shot above 50 percent with over 20 points? Is this real life? It’s about time the shots start falling for him. Shoutout to his Harden-esque stat-line though. 10-12 from the free throw line will help in any situation.

Free throws were truly the story of the first half as the Rockets got up to 18-20 from the line before the Kings even attempted 5. This allowed the lead to thicken and Fred VanVleet to have his moment with a near-half-court shot to close out the half and make the lead 25.

Never a doubt, never looked back.

Fred VanVleet shooting 37 percent from the field is clearly going to be an issue this year. Respect for still chucking shit up and remaining confident though. As Dion Waiters said, “I’d rather go 0 for 30 than 0 for 9 because you go 0 for 9 that means you stopped shooting.” Keep making the right reads and getting people open, Freddy. We got your back.

As long as the Rockets keep winning games, I’ll throw this tidbit in the back of my brain and try to forget about it until it becomes an issue again. There is much more to be happy about than sad, so why be negative?


Hell of a couple days for Houston Sports. Dynamo, please survive and advance to make our lives better.

Your Houston Rockets will take on LeBron James and the Pittsburgh St- I mean the Los Angeles Lakers on Wednesday. See y’all there. Game 6 of 82 what we learned: Houston Rockets edition.
