Nice play by rookie DT Thomas Booker, who got a little push into the backfield, held his spot, then shook the blocker to make the tackle for no gain. #Texans9:10 PM

High throw by Book, off the hands of Juwan Johnson & #Texans Tremon Smith hauls in the interception. Texans will have the ball at the 34yd line…with QB Jeff Driskel taking over. Mills plays 2 series, no 1st downs, 3-3, 14 yds passing. – 8:31 PM

More on this storyline

Duane Rankin: #Suns at #Nuggets Christmas Day, sources confirm to @azcentral. Phoenix 2-1 vs. Denver last season, winning last two. Won at Denver 140-130 Mar. 24 for 60th win. Devin Booker 49 after Amir Coffey’s face was on screen instead of his in starter intro. “That was disrespectful.” pic.twitter.com/7sPb2PDQ0J -via Twitter @DuaneRankin / August 15, 2022
Jake Fischer: Kevin Durant clearly believed there was an easy route for him to get to Phoenix. And wanted to play with Devin Booker and Chris Paul. And that was definitely a very, a very real component. -via Apple Podcasts / July 28, 2022
Ramona Shelburne: Two-time WNBA MVP Elena @De11eDonne is signing with Jessica Holtz. Holtz recently negotiated supermax contract extensions for Devin Booker and Karl-Anthony Towns. Delle Donne is the first WNBA client she’s represented. -via Twitter @ramonashelburne / July 27, 2022
Marc Stein: The first draft of next season’s NBA schedule has Lakers at Dallas/LeBron James at Luka Doncic on Christmas Day, league sources tell me. Changes are still possible before the full schedule officially drops next week but Christmas games usually hold. More NBA from me: marcstein.Substack.com -via Twitter @TheSteinLine / August 12, 2022
It was only a prep game as the two teams are preparing for the upcoming Eurobasket and the FIBA World Cup, but it will be remembered. Dragic finished the night with 28 points and the winning three, while Doncic had 23 points, 10 rebounds, and five assists in 27 minutes of action. He didn’t play in the overtime. -via EuroHoops.net / August 12, 2022
