Jalen Green Scores 30 Points, Rockets Beat Bucks 97-92

Jalen Green had 30 points and seven rebounds, Kevin Porter Jr. added 18 points and seven assists and the Houston Rockets beat the Milwaukee Bucks 97-92 on Sunday night to extend their home-winning streak to four games.

Houston was coached by assistant coach John Lucas with head coach Stephen Silas away from the team following the death of father and long-time NBA player and coach Paul Silas.

“That’s for Coach,” Lucas said. “That one’s for him.”

Green was 12 of 21 shooting, including 3 of 6 on 3-pointers.

“I work with him every day,” Lucas said. “I know how good he is. The problem is being patient and for him to be patient, but he’s growing.”

Kenyon Martin Jr. had 10 points and five rebounds for the Rockets. Houston shot 44% and was 6 of 27 on 3-pointers.

“That’s a good win for us,” Lucas said. “We had a good day of practice the other day. We talked about accountability, talked about being professional and starting to grow up. … We’re better than young. We’re not great, but we are better than young. We’re going to make some mistakes, but I think we did a great job.”

The Rockets made 11 of 12 free throws, going 5 of 6 in the final minute to put the game away.
“From the beginning we’ve been preaching about being a defensive team and making that our identity,” Porter said. “Each game we’ve been getting better in moments and aspects of the game, but tonight it was our defensive end, rotating that low man and just helping the helper. You saw a lot of that tonight, and we were just consistent tonight.”
