Rockets rookie Taree Eason posted one of the most amazing points you’ll ever see in just 19 minutes

Rockets rookie Taree Eason posted one of the most amazing points you’ll ever see in just 19 minutes


Tara Eason is a good tackle in attack. He can even be great. He ranks third among rookies this season with 2.2 per game. Alperen Sengun is the only Rocket to take more of them this year. But Eason only plays 19.4 minutes per game. During his career, he appeared in the starting line-up only three times. If I told you that Eason had one of the greatest offensive rebounding games in professional basketball history, you would probably laugh. But that’s exactly what happened against Thunder on Wednesday.

First: we clarified offensive bounce for a reason. Eason was invisible on the defensive glass with just one defensive rebound. But he had a staggering 12 offensive rebounds in 19 minutes against the Thunder.

Surprisingly, this is not entirely true NBA recording This has happened three other times in NBA history. Popeye Jones did it in 1994, Zydrunas Ilgauskas did it in 2005, and Tristan Thompson did it in 2014. In fact, it accomplishes this feat about once every decade. Eason was so good offensively that he managed four offensive rebounds in one possession.

Lest you believe this game was a statistical freak and nothing more, the performance was something of a breakout performance across the board for Houston’s 17th pick. It was also the first 20-point game of his career. He also had three steals and two blocks. Most importantly, he helped the underprivileged Rockets the command is missing Jalen Green and Kevin Porter Jr. to an upset win over the Thunder.

But the history books won’t remember the worst team in the NBA picking up a meaningless win in the middle of a losing season. They will forever immortalize one of the great, random stats in NBA history, because it will likely be about a decade before we see another game like that.
