Playing against the team that drafted him, Ben McLemore finished Sunday’s win over the Kings with 20 points (7-of-16 FGs), three rebounds, one assist and six 3-pointers in 28 minutes.
While Danuel House (two points, five rebounds, and two assists) struggled with his shot, shooting 1-of-7 from the field, McLemore had no such issues against the team that selected him with the seventh overall pick in the 2013 NBA Draft. He’s now scored 20 points in each of the Rockets’ last two games, shooting a combined 11-of-24 from three, raising his production with Russell Westbrook currently sidelined with a quad injury. House may bring a bit more to the table in non-scoring areas, but it’s obvious that McLemore is on a heater of sorts right now. He should be the pick as long as Westbrook is out of action.
