BEAST THE ODD$ (ALL I SEE IS GREEN)
BEAST DOME NATION.
Hopefully you tailed the Bruce Brown pick who covered everything by the 3rd quarter. I knew it was going to be a good game when the first play he got an offensive rebound and scored.
When the NBA season started, it was seen as a good thing the Rockets got Fred Vanvleet to run the show at PG for the Rockets. He was such a vital part of the LeBronto Raptors, surely the Rockets would now have a floor general. So far this season, we have seen that Vanvleet was a product of DeMar DeRozan/Kawhi Leonard and Kyle Lowry, not a superstar in his own rights.
What the Rockets do see is they have a superstar in Jalen Green. Jalen has completely taken over this offense and the Rockets are fine with it. Usually it will go from Green to Segun to run a 2 man game, but with Segun likely being bodied by Jonas Valanciunas, it will be on Jalen to run clear paths to the basket as Jonas leaves the paint open.
What makes Jalen great as well as he has become an aggressive rebounder. He has skyed in for double digit rebound performances 3 in a row. Vegas does not think he will get 5. Vegas also does not think Jalen will score 20 Points or get 5 Assists. This guy is the lifeblood of the Rockets, he could of scored 40 against the Lakers but went into a sharing role with such a big lead. He is the man and the Rockets know it.
With Herbert Jones now out, the line still has not moved on Jalen. Take the steal.
