Former Kansas basketball star Ben McLemore has been an effective member of the Houston Rockets this season, and he was effective in the first game of the playoffs.

After being a lottery pick in the 2013 NBA Draft, former Kansas basketball star Ben McLemore struggled to find a role with the Sacramento Kings after they drafted him. Since joining the Hoston Rockets in July of 2019, he’s started finding his groove.

Last night in the Rockets’ first playoff game against the Oklahoma City Thunder, McLemore totaled 14 points on five-of-eight shooting in 24 minutes.
