Rockets vs. Cavaliers game preview: this looks familiar

Photo by Jason Miller/ The Rockets shot 4-45 from 3 last night. That won’t happen again. Hopefully. Houston played Cleveland the other night, with the Cavaliers winning 112-96. The Rockets will look to flip the result in order to avoid a 12-game losing streak. In the first matchup, the Rockets had no answer for Jarrett Allen (26 points and 18 rebounds). Houston was outrebounded by 28, and with Justin Patton still getting major minutes, that looks to continue tonight. Things are looking bleak, and with Christian Wood’s return still a little ways off and John Wall...

Rockets vs. Grizzlies game preview: right back where we started from

Photo by Justin Ford/ The last game that Christian Wood played this season: February 4 against the Memphis Grizzlies. The last time that the Houston Rockets won a game: February 4 against the Memphis Grizzlies. That’s clearly not coincidence. A coincidence is when a confluence of events happen at the same time. No, the Rockets are losing games via a direct effect of not having Wood available. Houston is on a 10-game losing streak, and Wood won’t be back tonight. Tonight is the start of a back-to-back, and the Rockets have generally played those pretty...

Houston Rockets: Christian Wood’s absence proving how vital he is

Only a few weeks ago, the Houston Rockets were the hottest team in the NBA, stringing together six straight wins and posting a league-best 100.2 defensive rating over that stretch. And the most impressive part of all this is that the Rockets did all this without James Harden, the seven-time All-Star and former league MVP.

Rockets fall again, lose 118-113 to 76ers

Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports The Daryl Morey rematch ends as expected. The Houston Rockets lost their seventh straight contest tonight, falling to the Philadelphia 76ers in the the Daryl Morey Classic 118-113. Houston fell behind big early and closed the gap late, but the lack of Christian Wood, Victor Oladipo, and P.J. Tucker proved too much of an obstacle to overcome, as the Rockets tumble down to 11-17 on the season and now hold the the sixth-worst record in the NBA. John Wall once again led the way for the Rockets, going for 28 points, 3 rebounds, 7 assists,...

Rockets drop sixth straight, fall to Wizards 131-119

Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports Another day, another defeat. The Houston Rockets continue to play shorthanded, and they continue to struggle. Down Christian Wood, Victor Oladipo, Eric Gordon, and P.J. Tucker, the Rockets spackled together their 15th starting lineup of the season and leaned on John Wall in the hopes of getting past the Washington Wizards, the worst team in the Eastern Conference. However, despite Wall’s season high 29 points and 11 assists, Houston was unable to stop anyone on the defensive side, falling 131-119 and giving up 52 percent shooting to...

Beal outduels ex-teammate Wall, Wizards top Rockets 131-119

WASHINGTON (AP) — Bradley Beal scored 37 points in an entertaining duel with ex-teammate John Wall, and the Wizards beat the undermanned Houston Rockets 131-119 on Monday night in Wall's return to Washington. Wall, traded in December for Russell Westbrook and a first-round pick, had season highs of 29 points and 11 assists for the Rockets, who were missing leading scorer Eric Gordon along with Victor Oladipo, Christian Wood and P.J. Tucker. Houston dropped its sixth straight. Westbrook had 16 points, 15 assists and 13 rebounds for his sixth triple-double of the season — his first in a...

Photo by Carmen Mandato/ The Houston Rockets are having a no-good, not fun, very bad stretch. Losers of five straight since Christian Wood’s injury, the Rockets are trudging through yet another road trip. This one got off to a poor start against the New York Knicks. Tonight, they take on a Washington Wizards team that just demolished the Boston Celtics yesterday afternoon. The Wizards are 7-17. They’ve dealt with COVID more than any other team, lost Thomas Bryant for the year, and have generally been dealt a bad hand this year. Bradley Beal will always have rumors...

SB Nation Reacts: Rockets MVP so far

Photo by Jonathan Bachman/ Which one did you vote for? We have quite a bit to go over in SB Nation Reacts today, including a flash, one-day national poll that came back with some interesting results, so let’s get right to it. We’ll start with the local questions, since we had a good one there too this week. Our first Rockets question asked who was the team’s MVP so far this season: Christian Wood, John Wall, or Victor Oladipo? I was honestly a little surprised by that vote. Wood has obviously been a huge piece for the Rockets, and that ankle injury...

Rockets vs. Heat game preview: yet another nationally televised game that Houston will lose

Photo by Michael Reaves/ The Rockets finally return home, but they are on a 3-game losing streak. The Miami Heat come in on a 3-game winning streak. Six of Houston’s last seven games came on the road, and after tonight the Rockets head back to the East coast for a three game road trip. With the injury to Christian Wood and the inability to play John Wall and Victor Oladipo in back-to-backs, a heavy schedule has absolutely decimated Houston’s chances at making a real run. The Heat have gotten off to a slow start this season, through little fault of their own. The...

Pelicans trounce Rockets 130-101 for Houston’s third-straight loss

Photo by Jonathan Bachman/ The Rockets lose a tough one down in New Orleans. The Houston Rockets continue to struggle without Christian Wood in their 130-101 loss to the New Orleans Pelicans on Tuesday night. The first quarter was an up-and-down battle for both teams. There were several lead changes, and neither team was able to pull ahead. Houston went down by five points early, but an 11-4 run in the middle of the first quarter was able to get them back into the game and lead by as many as three. But with John Wall and Eric Gordon on the bench, the Pelicans would...
