88 + 26 + 20!Houston lost to SAN Antonio by 3 points, but four new stars show their talent
The Houston Rockets combined for 88 points, 26 rebounds and 20 assists in a 123-120 loss to the SAN Antonio Spurs. How good was that?Combine six pictures for fans to interpret one by one.Green 30 + 4 + 4;Porter added 26 points, 9 points and 7 points to the rockets’ loss. Christopher had 20 points, six rebounds, six assists and two steals.The 24th overall pick in this year’s draft, Christopher has static talent at 197, 97 kilograms and a 207-centimeter wingspan, as well as athleticism at the elite level. The draft template is capped at Beal and capped at Powell, as reflected in today’s game:On this drive, for example, Green hit a 3-pointer from the left, and Christopher came in from behind the arc and finished a 2-and-1 with the SAN Antonio trio looking up, his bounce speed and height were key to setting Murray and Johnson in the background.Shin Jing had 12 points, 7 rebounds, 3 assists and 2 blocks.With a height of 208 centimeters and a wingspan of 215 centimeters, Shin Jing does not have outstanding static talent and is even mediocre in moving speed and jumping. However, Shin Jing does have unique talent and unparalleled “creativity”. A typical image:Shin gyeong’s backpass to Tate failed, shin gyeong grabbed an offensive rebound and faced Collins on the rebound. As shown in the picture, shin gyeong’s left hand (a right-handed player himself) sent a backstroke pass to Tate for an overhead basket.As an inside man, yoo has many assists, but he is the only one who can create chances with his vision and passing ability.Porter had 26 points, 9 rebounds, 7 assists, 1 steal and 1 block.Porter wouldn’t be the 30th overall pick in the 2019 draft if it weren’t for off-court factors, but his talent is undeniable.In addition to his unique static talent at 197 cm tall and 206 cm wingspan no. 1, he also possesses elite athleticism. Two typical screens:Porter made a breakaway steal and dunked the Spurs, then took just two seconds to pass. Facing Jones, who was 10 centimeters short, Porter showed off his talent perfectly, bouncing straight from the top of the free throw line and seemingly not making an easy one-arm dunk.On defense, the 211-inch Collins had already bounced for a layup. Porter took the lead, waited in the air for Collins, and finished with his left hand.After a disappointing start to the season, Porter has made significant progress.His shot selection and timing are still flawed, but he’s only 22, and as long as he can control his personality and keep working hard, he has a big future.Green had 30 points, 4 rebounds and 4 assists.In addition to being the perfect no. 2 overall, Green has historically high athleticism, which is the key to his template that draft experts once put on the “up and down” list.Green’s one-armed dunk against the 216-inch Poettel was a perfect example of his athleticism when green took the ball to the top of his right arc and ran through the spurs’ first three defenses.Green finished the third quarter with just five seconds left on the rockets’ shot clock, dribbling in from the backcourt over Richardson and Jones for a 3-pointer.The shot not only highlighted his speed and 3-point accuracy, but also, more importantly, green’s big heart, a quality he was born with, not perfected, and another factor that has long been touted as a superstar.Although the rockets lost the game, the four rookies showed their talents in the game, which delighted rockets fans because they represent the future of the rockets.
