playing some good defense in some of those clips and the free throws look text book.
Just on those highlights I'd say 6-14 shooting was more like 6-11 shooting because one was a full court heave and two he got shoved very hard with no call on the shot (one where he got t'd and the other a big shove in the back).
Actually, the Rockets are presently in the 7 hole, ahead of Utah.
Agreed as of now. When the Lakers talk about moving up to the playoff list, they were eyeing to take the Rockets out who since squeaked ahead of Utah.
The Rockets just cut forward Tyler Honeycutt (traded recently from Sacramento) from the Vipers - one less forward for Royce to compete with.
Looking forward to CFH magic for the next bball season, Georges style.
Thanks for posting the video and starting this thread. Like everyone else, I'm impressed with his free throws! They look great. Next step will be to keep them consistent. If/when he makes the Rockets' squad I'll be interested in the NBA for the first time since Jordan was playing.
Go Royce. Glad they are finally giving him extended minutes. Hopefully he finishes the DLeague season strong, has a good Vegas summer league and is ready to contribute to the Rockets next year. #Progress
Royce finally played a pretty good game last night. 23 points, 6-14 shooting, 11-15 from the line (amazing), 9 boards and 4 assists. Granted he played more minutes than any other team member, but perhaps he is finally getting back in the groove.
Wait...he did WHAT?
Green hills for thy throne, and for crown a golden melody/Ringing in the hearts of all who bring thee love and loyalty/Dear Alma Mater, make our spirits great True and valiant like the bells of I-O-WA STATE!
I realize he needs to get in better shape but for as massive as royce is, he seems to really struggle finishing through contact. Leaves a lot of his shots short. And I don't mean just this video he struggled while at isu as well
He's totally revamped his free throw motion, and it was pretty consistent throughout. He'd have averaged 5 pts a game more for ISU last year at least with the kind of consistent free throw success he had against Austin in this game.
I still want him to be a successful NBA baller so bad. If he can find a way to finish after contact and hit his free throws consistently he'll be a valuable commodity with the way he handles the ball and can dish it to the open man.
