NBA Las Vegas Summer League 2012: Rockets Face Chicago Bulls

The Houston Rockets summer league team, stacked with first round picks, tries to move their record to 4-1 when they face the Chicago Bulls on Wednesday afternoon.

Houston, which has three players averaging over 16+ points a game in Las Vegas, will face an old Rocket, Jermaine Taylor, who is trying to work his way back into the NBA.

Taylor should provide a good test for Jeremy Lamb at the SG position, while Georgetown rookie Henry Sims has the size and footspeed at 6'10 245 to give Donatas Motiejunas a good matchup.

Houston's trio of promising young combo forwards -- Royce White, Terrence Jones and Marcus Morris -- should overwhelm the Bulls down low, although veteran Leon Powe will give whoever is defending him a taste of NBA physicality in the paint.

Chicago will run most of their offense through their first-round pick, Marquise Teague of Kentucky.
