Rockets' open practice draws large crowd, brings 'electric' energy

Jonathan Feigen / staff

The Rockets on Saturday held their open practice for about 7,000 fans at Toyota Center, twice the crowd of last season’s practice. The public scrimmage is an annual event, but rarely has its participants been more exuberant. Team Boban defeated Team EG, with Boban Marjanovic comically playing for the crowd with a dribble exhibition and a bear hug of Jalen Green to momentarily keep him from adding to his dunk show. Eric Gordon did not put himself in the game with Green, Josh Christopher and K.J. Martin providing the dunks expected for such an occasion with Tari Eason collecting them on the other end.“It was really fun,” guard TyTy Washington, who declared himself the winner of the dance competition, said.

“We had so much fun out there. Since the summer, we’ve just been grinding, staying consistent, going at each other every day. For us to have something like this on what would typically be an off day for us, to come in and see the fans’ faces and see the excitement they have, really brings joy to us.”
