Austin Rivers scored 18 points with four rebounds, four assists, four triples and a steal in 44 minutes on Thursday night.
Fours all around. Rivers stepped up with Eric Gordon and Chris Paul out, and the Rockets needed every ounce of production from the roster tonight to complement James Harden's brilliance. Rivers only offers late-round appeal for the time being and will become a deep-league player once the Rockets get healthy, but he's fine to roll with for now. Danuel House had 17 points with a steal and two threes in 39 minutes while Gerald Green had 16 with three triples, a steal and a block in 30 minutes. Those two are fine in deep leagues, with House on a quietly productive run over his last three with at least 15 points in each.
