​​The Houston Rockets looked to continue their ascent towards the top of the Western Conference. In order to do so, the Rockets had to hold back a tough challenge from the Dallas Mavericks. In the final seconds of regulation, Mavericks rookie Jalen Brunson found himself with the ball and had to let off a shot before time expired. As he went for his attempt, ​Chris Paul was all over him and unleashed a savage block to seal the victory for the Rockets. 

​​There's no other way to say it, Brunson was absolutely rejected by the grizzled veteran.


The Rockets are on a roll right now, and look to carry that momentum heading into the playoffs next month.
