Trans. Oct 24 7:49 ET (Oct 24 7:49 ET ) James Harden scored 25 points, and the Houston Rockets used a big run before halftime to beat the San Antonio Spurs 96-87 in a preseason game on Friday night. Isaiah Canaan added 18 points for the Rockets, who shot 42 percent from the floor, including 15 of 35 from behind the arc. Terrence Jones had 11 points and 12 rebounds, and Trevor Ariza added 11 points and nine boards. Marco Belinelli led the Spurs with 19 points, and Danny Green scored 14.
Danny Green played well in the preseason finale on Friday with 14 points, three rebounds, one assist, one steal and three 3-pointers in 33 minutes.
The Scoop:He had a nice preseason and should be in a similar role as last season. Green was a mid-round value in 2012-13, but the ups and downs in 2013-14 hurt his ADP. Nobody will care that you take him in the last round, but he'll outperform his ADP.
Danny Green hit just 2-of-10 shots and one 3-pointer for five points, two rebounds and one steal on Wednesday.
The Scoop:Green can get hot at any time and will bury a ton of threes when it happens, but he's been very inconsistent over the last couple seasons, and was generally viewed as a bust last season. He can't play much worse, but he doesn't appear to have the breakout appeal he once had. Target him late and hope he can get his shot to fall more consistently this season.
