Williams integrating in with Rockets, who host T-Wolves

HOUSTON -- Newly acquired Rockets guard Lou Williams readily admitted to being surprised by his productivity in his debut with Houston on Thursday night in New Orleans, an individual performance that fueled a blowout victory and only bolstered conversation that the Rockets are legitimate contenders in the West.

Williams made seven 3-pointers and poured in 27 points in the Rockets' 129-99 win over the Pelicans, doing so without the benefit of a practice or even a shootaround with his new team. He took to the floor after observing a few set plays on an iPad and did what came natural after that: he shot and he scored.

What comes next for the Rockets (41-18) beyond their hosting the Minnesota Timberwolves (23-35) on Saturday night at Toyota Center is the process of integrating Williams into their team dynamic. Houston produced the second most efficient offense in the league prior to trading with the Los Angeles Lakers and receiving a frontrunner for Sixth Man of the Year honors. By adding Williams to their potent mix, the Rockets aim to overwhelm every remaining opponent.
