Top Tari Eason News

  • Rockets' Tari Eason: Does it all against Detroit

    Eason totaled 26 points (12-25 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 0-1 FT), nine rebounds, three assists, two blocks and two steal over 32 minutes during Sunday's 113-101 Summer League win over the Pistons.

    Eason with another impressive Summer League performance, once again making a living at the rim. The LSU product was solid defensively, collecting two blocks and two steals, and did well on the boards. With the way Eason is playing, it would be shocking if he gets much more run in Summer League.

  • Rockets' Tari Eason: Shines against Portland

    Eason notched 20 points (7-14 FG, 2-4 3PT, 4-6 FT), nine rebounds, five assists and four blocks across 30 minutes of Friday's 100-99 Summer League win over Portland.

    Eason was an obvious standout Friday, blowing by defenders for a thunderous jam and producing one of the blocks of the Summer League on Shaedon Sharpe. The forward rotation is very crowded in Houston this season with the arrivals of Amen Thompson and Dillon Brooks, so Eason will need to keep up this momentum to impress new coach Ime Udoka.

  • Rockets' Tari Eason: Strong showing off bench

    Eason notched 16 points (6-11 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 3-4 FT), eight rebounds, four assists and one block across 27 minutes during Sunday's 114-109 victory over the Wizards.

    The rookie forward was a consistent force on the glass to end the season, recording at least six boards in each of the last eight games and averaging 8.9 points, 7.8 rebounds, 1.5 assists and 1.4 steals in 26.6 minutes off the bench during that stretch. Eason remains behind Jabari Smith on the depth chart, but the 21-year-old could emerge as a core piece of the second unit next season.

  • Rockets' Tari Eason: Held scoreless against Brooklyn

    Eason totaled zero points (0-6 FG, 0-2 3Pt), six rebounds and one assist over 22 minutes during Wednesday's 123-114 loss to Brooklyn.

    Eason scored in double figures in his last three appearances, but he was unable to connect on any of his six field-goal attempts during Wednesday's loss. Over his five appearances since returning to a bench role, he's averaged 9.8 points and 6.8 rebounds in 27.2 minutes per game.

  • Rockets' Tari Eason: Remains productive in bench role

    Eason finished with 13 points (5-11 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), eight rebounds, two steals and one assist in 28 minutes in Monday's 137-115 loss to the Knicks.

    Jae'Sean Tate (knee) missed his fifth game in a row Monday, and his continued absence has paved the way for Eason to see more run behind starting small forward Kenyon Martin in addition to filling his usual duties as the top backup to starting power forward Jabari Smith. In those five games, Eason has played no fewer than 27 minutes, averaging 14.0 points, 8.0 rebounds, 1.6 steals, 1.4 assists and 0.8 three-pointers while shooting 54.7 percent from the field. The non-contending Rockets could choose to hold Tate out for the rest of the season, so Eason looks like he'll continue to remain worthy of rostering in most leagues over the next two weeks.

  • Rockets' Tari Eason: Productive in blowout loss

    Eason provided 21 points (9-13 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-3 FT), four rebounds, three assists and one steal across 29 minutes during Friday's 151-114 loss to the Grizzlies.

    Eason was one of the few bright spots for the Rockets as they were run out of the building by the Grizzlies, conceding 151 points. Eason is averaging 14.3 points, 7.3 rebounds, 1.5 assists and 1.3 steals over the past four games and figures to see elevated workloads and usage in the final couple weeks.

  • Rockets' Tari Eason: Will return to bench

    Eason will return to the bench for Wednesday's game in Memphis, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Eason received a spot start Monday with Alperen Sengun (illness) watching from the sidelines, but Sengun is back in action for Wednesday's game, so Eason will return to a reserve role, likely earning minutes in the mid-20s.

  • Rockets' Tari Eason: Leads team in spot start

    Eason posted 21 points (9-16 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 2-4 FT), 12 rebounds, four steals and one assist in 31 minutes during Monday's 121-108 loss to the Warriors.

    Eason drew a spot start with Alperen Sengun (illness) sidelined and posted team highs in points, rebounds and steals. The rookie's 21 points were also a season high and marked his third outing with at least 20 points. He now has seven double-doubles, including two with at least 20 points and 12 rebounds. The four steals were one shy of his career-high mark, and Eason now has 20 games with multiple steals and three with at least four swipes. When Eason plays at least 25 minutes (15 games), he's averaging 14.1 points, 8.9 rebounds, 1.5 assists, 1.4 steals and 0.7 blocks per contest.

    Eason will return to the starting lineup for Monday's matchup with the Warriors with Alperen Sengun (illness) unavailable, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Joining Eason in the first unit for Monday's game will be Kevin Porter, Jalen Green, Kenyon Martin and Jabari Smith. Across four starts this season, Eason has registered averages of 11.8 points, 9.3 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 1.3 steals, 0.8 blocks and 1.5 turnovers per contest on 48.8 percent shooting.

  • Rockets' Tari Eason: Moves back to bench

    Eason isn't in the starting five for Wednesday's game versus the Lakers, Harrison Faigen of reports.

  • Rockets' Tari Eason: Starting Monday

    Eason will join the first unit for Monday's game against the Celtics, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Eason is getting the start with Alperen Sengun (groin) unavailable, and he'll be joining Kevin Porter, Jalen Green, Kenyon Martin and Jabari Smith in the first unit for Monday's game. In Eason's previous three starts this season, he's posted averages of 13.7 points, 9.3 rebounds, 1.7 assists, 1.7 steals, 0.7 swats and 1.7 turnovers per contest on 50 percent shooting.

  • Rockets' Tari Eason: Offers spark off bench

    Eason finished Saturday's 119-111 loss to the Bulls with 12 points (4-6 FG, 4-4 3Pt), four rebounds, one assist and one steal in 21 minutes.

    Eason had picked up at least 25 minutes in each of the previous seven games while logging more time at small forward, but he failed to reach that benchmark Saturday. The rookie still made his mark with efficient scoring and lights-out shooting from three-point range, and his minutes count likely would have been higher had he not accrued five fouls. In spite of the downturn in minutes Saturday, Eason's rest-of-season outlook still appears to be promising.

  • Rockets' Tari Eason: Scores team-high 20 points

    Eason closed Saturday's 122-110 victory over San Antonio with 20 points (7-11 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 4-6 FT), five rebounds, two assists, two blocks and two steals over 31 minutes.

    The Rockets had eight players in double digits in Saturday's win, and Eason paced the team in scoring despite coming off the bench. He's currently going through his most productive stretch of the campaign and has scored in double digits for a season-high four games, but his upside will always be capped as long as he continues to play off the bench.
