Parsons uses USA Basketball snub as motivation on career night where he set an NBA record for 3-pointers in a half, matched a Rockets record for consecutive made 3-pointers without a miss and for threes made in a game.
Parsons was tied with Bradley Beal for 32nd most 3-pointers made coming into Friday's game at 68 this season and was shooting about 38% from beyond the arc. Parsons has been feeling it of late as he is shooting 50% from the field and 3-point range over his last five games while averaging 21.2 points, 7.2 rebounds, and 3.2 assists over his last five games proving he is more than a three point shooting specialist.

Apparently there was not sufficient evidence to charge McDonald for the Domestic Violence charge that's been lingering over him since last season. The other charge is a sexual assault charge, which is still being investigated. It's unclear whether or not McDonald will actually miss any time during the upcoming season. Analysis: Spencer Silva
