Video Highlights: Motiejunas shines as Rockets roar back against Grizzlies

Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

Everyone's favorite awkward but silly power forward got some rare playing time against the Grizzlies and shined, leading the Rockets in a big comeback win. Check out the video highlights!

As the second half of last night's Rockets game got underway, things were not looking good for the Rockets. Just four minutes into the 3rd quarter, Dwight Howard picked up his fifth foul and Donatas Motiejunas was forced to enter. Instead of the somewhat uninspired, lackluster basketball Motiejunas has treated us to this season, D-Mo played excellent in his most action of the season, making key defensive plays and running the floor as the Rockets came back against the Grizzlies.

As Chandler Parsons said after the game, "it wasn't pretty, but a win's a win." James Harden made 22 free throws, Chandler Parsons had a double-double, and Terrence Jones went 10 for 14 from the floor and the Rockets somehow pulled out the win.

Let's check out the highlights, courtesy of CSN Houston:
