Jalen Green first shared a court with Anthony Edwards as high schoolers at a Team USA basketball camp in 2017. The two guards later faced off at the 2018 Stephen Curry Select Camp, with highlights of their matchup going viral years before Edwards was chosen by Minnesota as the first pick in the 2020 NBA Draft and Green by Houston as the No. 2 pick a year later.
They met again for Green’s NBA debut in the Rockets’ season opener, a 124-106 loss to the Timberwolves at Target Center on Oct. 20. Green was overwhelmed by Minnesota’s physicality and shot just 4-of-14 from the field and 1-of-6 from deep.
