The Houston Rockets defeated the Memphis Grizzlies 101-89 Wednesday night. The Rockets shot the ball poorly but were still able to get the win. They shot 38.8 percent from the field, 30.4 percent from beyond the arc, and 89.3 percent from the free throw line. James Harden led the Rockets with 19 points, but only shot 2-of-13 from the field. He did go 14-of-15 from the free throw line.

Andrew Harrison gets five steals

Andrew Harrison played a solid game for the Memphis Grizzlies. He contributed 17 points, six rebounds, two assists, and five steals. He went 3-of-8 from the field, 3-of-6 from the three-point line, and 8-of-10 from the free throw line.

Harrison has potential, but he still needs a lot of work in his game. If he can improve, he has all the tools to be a solid two-way point guard in the NBA.

Mike Conley does a bit of everything

Mike Conley played a decent all-around game against the Houston Rockets. He contributed eight points, five rebounds, four assists, and one steal in 22 minutes. He shot 30 percent from the field and 66.7 percent from the free throw line. Conley, Chandler Parsons, and Marc Gasol will have to put in the work this upcoming season, as the Western Conference is looking very tough. If the Grizzlies can play well and avoid injury issues this upcoming season, they have a good chance at making the playoffs.The Grizzlies are set to play the New Orleans Pelicans on October 18 for their first regular season game.

Clint Capela rejects five shots

Clint Capela showcased his defensive presence in the paint against the Memphis Grizzlies. He contributed 15 points, nine rebounds, two assists, one steal and five blocks in 27 minutes. He shot 55.6 percent from the field and 100 percent from the free throw line. If Clint Capela can consistently give the opposing team a hard time in the paint, the Rockets will surely be a very scary team to go up against this upcoming NBA season.

Paul records six assists

Chris Paul had a decent game as well. He contributed nine points, one rebound, six assists, and two steals in 32 minutes. He shot only 25 percent from the field, 28.6 percent from beyond the arc, and 50 percent from the free throw line. With the addition of Chris Paul and PJ Tucker, the Rockets are looking really solid going into the season.

They will play their first NBA regular season game this October 17 at the Oracle Arena against the defending NBA champions, the Golden State Warriors.
