When a player becomes impressive on the ground. It goes viral in seconds in this modern world. Jalen Green did the same on Monday.
The entire NBA is left wondering about Houston Rockets guard Jalen Green after his monstrous performance on Monday against the Minnesota Timberwolves.
Green scored a career-high 42 points in that game, which was a major factor in the Rockets’ 119-114 win over the Timberwolves. Despite 31 and 30 points from Anthony Edwards and D’Angelo Russell respectively, their contributions were not enough to overcome the 20-year guard’s tremendous performance.
The Rockets also received plenty of support from Alperen Sengun and Eric Gordon, but there’s no question that Green was the star of the game. He shot 25 times and hit 15, including 6 of 12 three-pointers.
Unsurprisingly, all of NBA Twitter gave the boy rave reviews. Many have noted that this is further evidence that he is destined to become a popular celebrity.
One supporter said, “Jalen Green is an all-star.” Jalen Green is a guaranteed star in the making. Without a doubt,” added a third user.
A third fan pointed out that this was Green’s third 40-point performance while none of his other 2021 draft classmates had come close. It’s Jalen Green’s third 40-point performance of his pro career. No other member of the 2021 draft class can make that claim.
