The Houston Rockets may not be bound for the playoffs in the Western Conference this season, but Monday's win over the Philadelphia 76ers accentuated the team's intriguing young players and how better days aren't so far away.

Guards Kevin Porter Jr. and Jalen Green combined for 51 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists. Sure, they missed some aggressive shots they should not have attempted, and they can be turnover machines, but they're young. They're fun to watch and, much of the time, worth relying on for fantasy basketball.
