Houston Rockets head coach Stephen Silas was super impressed with rookie Tari Eason’s performance in last night’s 112-106 home win vs. the Oklahoma City Thunder (20 points/13 rebounds/1 assist/3 steals/2 blocks/8-21 FG/1-2 3-PT/3-3 FT).
(via Houston Roundball Review):
Reporter: “Have you ever seen a player get 4 offensive rebounds in one possession like Tari did tonight?”
Silas: “I’ve never seen someone get 12 offensive rebounds and 13 total. But that just shows the fight that we had at that moment of the game, because there was one possession where he had a three, and I think Tate maybe got in there and got one. For us to have 65 rebounds in an NBA game and 24 on the offensive end shows you where we were at tonight, and it was a good place.”
