On Friday night the Rockets moved to 20-7 on the season with a 122-100 win over New Orleans. They also set an NBA record by hitting 24 three pointers. Here’s a look at all 24 of those three point shots….. Eric Gordon had 7, James Harden followed with 6 and Trevor Ariza nailed 5 as […]
A major postseason sporting event featured an important kick on a Sunday… and it had nothing to do with three points in an NFL playoff game. This wasn’t a missed 27-yard kick by Blair Walsh. This was a made one-yard kick by Draymond Green of the Golden State Warriors. He committed what the NBA called […]
The Rockets beat the No. 1 seed Golden State Warriors on Thursday night to trim the Warriors series lead to 2-1. Here’s the last few seconds of the game as James Harden provides the heroics…..
James Harden and Dwight Howard connected twice in the first quarter of Thursday nights game against the Golden State Warriors for alley-oops and led 31-18 at the end of the first….. Harden ➡️ Howard ⬆️🏀 https://t.co/aya3wCiPL3 — Houston Rockets (@HoustonRockets)
As the 2016 Golden State Warriors’ season unfolded, the optimism always had one caveat. A significant injury to Steph Curry would mean all bets were off. Any other injury, even one as damaging as the ankle sprain that cost Andre Iguodala 17 games late in the season, could be dealt with. Take Curry off the […]
Rick Carlisle isn’t Steve Kerr or Gregg Popovich. He isn’t wonderboy coach Brad Stevens. Not the coach of a championship contender, and not in his late 30s, Carlisle doesn’t have the present moment or the future on his side. Yet, if Wednesday night’s victory by his Dallas Mavericks over the Houston Rockets reaffirmed a single […]
Check out this move by James Harden as he fakes his defender out of his shoes and then finishes strong with a dunk in traffic….. FEAR the BEARD!
After losing to the Utah Jazz at the Toyota Center on Wednesday night, the Houston Rockets knew that on Friday night, they had to beat the Eastern conference’s second-best team in to retain the eighth and final playoff spot in the Western Conference. Coming into Friday’s game against the Toronto Raptors, Houston was riding a […]
The Utah Jazz are the Detroit Pistons of the Western Conference. Sure, they’d love to make the playoffs — it would be great if they did — but as much as they’re locked in a present-tense battle, they’re more fundamentally playing for the future. A championship is not a realistic aspiration this season, and it […]
Michael Beasley is, in a sense, the quintessential Houston Rocket, even though he’s been with the team for only four games. Beasley fits right into the Rockets’ overall pattern of being… well… largely free of patterns. Houston is just about impossible to neatly slot into any kind of pattern or category other than one: It […]
When the 2015 Houston Rockets completed an all-time comeback in Game 6 of the Western Conference semifinals, the death-defying feat turned around the series and led to a substantial, tangible result. Houston, you’re not in 2015 anymore. It’s true that the 2016 Rockets recalled their 2015 escape from the clutches of the Los Angeles Clippers […]
The saying goes that lightning never strikes in the same place twice. Technically, Los Angeles and Portland aren’t the same place. Don’t tell the Houston Rockets. They just re-created their great escape from danger in the 2015 NBA Playoffs. Some of the specific details were different, but the larger resurrection was very much the same. […]
The Houston Rockets could use a lot more of this from Ty Lawson…. Ty ➡️ James 🏀 https://t.co/BOKHEAXWp1 — Houston Rockets (@HoustonRockets)
So here’s your deal: there are just some dudes that get you fired. Think of it like this … from youth to adulthood, we all have that one or two dudes we know that if we hang out with them, nothing good happens in the end. It might be the best fun you’ll have at […]
It is true that when Pat Riley sacked Stan Van Gundy early in the 2005-2006 season, the Miami Heat went on to win the NBA championship. The brutally harsh and selfish move, drenched in ego as it was, did possess one fundamental advantage: The man who made the change was convinced that a better replacement […]
