Kevin Porter Jr. exploded for a 50-game piece vs. the Milwaukee Bucks on Thursday night. The sophomore led the Houston Rockets to the win after his historic performance.
Porter Jr. became the youngest player ever to record a 50+ points and 10+ assists game, passing LeBron James, who did the same in March 2008.
The King was 23 years and 66 days old when he achieved the feat on March 5, 2008. Porter achieved the feat being three years younger.
The promising swingman started the season for the Cleveland Cavaliers, before he got traded to Houston. After a short stint in the G League, the Rockets called up the sophomore guard/forward.
He averages 15.2 points in 19 starts for the rebuilding Rockets. As Houston is building a team for the future, Kevin Porter Jr. is certainly showing the potential of becoming a star in the league.
