Green is now the first rookie since Allen Iverson back in 1997 to score at least 30 points in four consecutive games.
He did this with a banner 31-point-and-5-assist showing against the Minnesota Timberwolves.
After the game, Green spoke with reporters and one of them asked: “What have you learned about yourself this rookie year?”

Jalen Green: "That I'm a bucket"

Green responded confidently: “That I’m a bucket.”
It’s obvious that Green is very confident – does he have reason to be?
Green Leading Houston
Green was the number two draft pick in 2021 and there was a lot of speculation and hype surrounding him.
He was known as a star shooter, someone who could help with spreading the floor and landing deep perimeter shots.
As the season began, it took Green a little while to find his footing but he eventually started to shine like the star he is.
However, this coincided with the Rockets falling far, far down the standings.
They were never going to make the Finals but there was a brief moment when they were surging and doing better than expected.
But they are currently the last team in the West with a record of 20-59.
So this season is lost but Green is still leaving it all on the floor.
For the season, he is averaging 16.8 points, 3.3 rebounds, and 2.6 assists a game.
His chances of landing Rookie of the Year in such a crowded field are slim but he is ending his rookie season with a bang.
The Rockets are very happy with what Green is doing and there is hope that they can make a few moves to help build a strong team around him.
