Kevin Porter Jr. just exorcised his demons with the Houston Rockets. The controversial scoring guard let his play do the talking against the Washington Wizards as he cooly sank the game-winner that left just 0.4 seconds on the game clock.

Just days after his highly publicized meltdown during the Rockets' loss to the Denver Nuggets, Kevin Porter Jr. reminded everyone of his basketball talent.
With the final shot on his mind, KPJ sized up Raul Neto and took a slick sidestep on the left wing for the dagger three. The lefty probably had Rockets fans seeing shades of James Harden with that lefty lunge and triple.
Kevin Porter Jr. had a largely rough shooting night, going 3-for-13 to finish with nine points for the game. But in the game of basketball, all can be forgotten with just one big shot.
The win snaps Houston's eight-game losing streak to help them improve to 11-28 for the season.
Flanking Porter Jr. were Jalen Green and Christian Wood, who each dropped 22 points apiece to help the Rockets overcome an undermanned Wizards side that saw Bradley Beal foul out very early in the fourth quarter.
