Motiejunas did all of his damage in 26 minutes of game action, also adding six rebounds and one steal. He is averaging 7.8 points and 5.4 rebounds in 19.2 minutes over his last five games.
Motiejunas scored his 12 points on 5 of 11 shooting in the game, including a pair of 3-pointers made. The big man also added five rebounds, one block, one assist and two steals as the Rockets won easily.
February has been Motiejunas' most productive month by a wide margin six games in. He has appeared in each game and is averaging 8.3 points and 3.3 rebounds in 20.2 minutes per game.
Motiejunas played 26 minutes off the bench and snagged double digit rebounds for the first time in his career, finishing with 13 boards. He also scored 12 points in an extremely efficient manner, connecting on 4 of 5 attempts from the field and 4 of 6 at the free-throw line.
Motiejunas has appeared in 12 of 15 games in the month of January, after appearing in just 16 games in the first two months of the season combined. He is still averaging just 4.4 points per game.
Motiejunas ended his season-long slump from long range in the game, making 3 of 4 3-pointers. He was 6 of 9 overall for 15 points, while adding seven rebounds in 24 minutes in the 104-92 loss.
Motiejunas was just 2 of 22 from three-point range prior to Thursday's game, so hopefully this can get him going. Two of Motiejunas' three double-figure scoring games have come in the last two nights, and he is averaging just 3.9 points per game on the season.
Motiejunas has not exactly earned a larger role through the first few months of the season, as he is shooting just 35.4 percent from the field. Motiejunas shot 45.5 percent as a part-time starter for the Rockets as a rookie a year ago.
