Kevin Porter Jr Debuts In The G League

Rockets shooting guard Kevin Porter Jr was sent to the G League bubble in Orlando after being acquired by Houston from the Cleveland Cavaliers. Porter, as discussed previously here, has had many character issues. To get him back on track, the Rockets sent him down to the G-League bubble with the Rio Grande Valley Vipers.

On February 10th, the Vipers took on the Raptors 905 in their first game on the bubble. The Valley Vipers shot horribly, shooting sub 40% from the field and 25% from three. The game ended in a 132-105 loss for Rio Grande Valley.

Despite the loss, Kevin Porter Jr was a bright spot. Porter shot 9/19 from the field including 4/9 from three. He scored a game-high 25 points while also dishing out 4 assists with a steal and a block. Porter was a starting lineup-best -12 on the night in +/-. Former Houston Cougar Armoni Brooks also had a great night, scoring 17 points off the bench.

Kevin Porter Jr and the Valley Vipers will look to bounce back on February 11th against the Agua Caliente Clippers.
